U.K. Testing Facility Expands
Westmoreland Mechanical Testing & Research Ltd. (WMT&R) continued its U.K. expansion by opening a state-of-the-art materials testing facility in Banbury, Oxfordshire. The site is nearly triple the size of the previous location and enables WMT&R to better serve customers with a wider range of testing services, increased capacity and faster turnaround times. The facility is Nadcap certified. Fatigue and tensile testing capacity and capabilities have been significantly increased, as have WMT&R’s composites testing services. Other key aspects of the expansion include an upgraded metallography laboratory, enhanced machining capabilities and a new laboratory information management system.
