Advanced characterization of physical and mechanical properties

The AZTERLAN Physical Testing Area is designed to respond to all types of mechanical characterization tests on metallic materials, components and structures.

We rely on the most avant-garde equipment that meets the strictest requirements set by international testing standards as well as on the professionality of our team that owns a profound knowledge of both metallic materials and the needs of our customers.
