The calibration laboratory provides NIST-traceable dimensional, pressure, force, torque, electrical, temperature, mass and vacuum calibration services, field calibration & repairs.
An Assistant Manager at Laboratory Testing Inc. has been promoted to Destructive Testing Manager after working with the company for three years. In his new position, Brandon McVaugh will be responsible for monitoring quality, budgeting, order processing and more in the Mechanical Testing Department and the Machine Shop.
Ed Deeny joins Laboratory Testing Inc. as Quality Manager. Deeny is responsible for customer agency, vendor and internal audits and promoting quality performance throughout the testing, specimen machining and calibration laboratories at LTI.
Frank Peszka has been promoted to Director of Quality at LTI. He will oversee LTI's expanding quality assurance needs to support testing and calibration, administer LTI's new program for managing industry specifications and implement improvement projects and employee training to achieve LTI's goals.
Brad Bergman, Metallography Supervisor, has earned the Standard of American Welding Society Certification and is now Certified Welding Inspector at Laboratory Testing, Inc. The certification enables Bergman to perform weld inspections and related activities as described by AWS B5.1.
Phil Trach of Laboratory Testing Inc. has been certified as a Pratt & Whitney Nondestructive Test Qualification Specification (NDTQ) SIM Level 3. The certification ensures that Laboratory Testing Inc. will maintain Pratt & Whitney approval for ultrasonic testing of bar and tubular products.
Laboratory Testing Inc. (LTI) has been chosen as one of the Best Places to Work in PA for 2012 by the Best Companies Group following an assessment of company policies, practices and philosophies, and employee feedback. Laboratory Testing Inc. was a past applicant and winner in 2002, 2009 and 2011. LTI is an accredited, independent materials testing, nondestructive testing and metrology laboratory.
Fracture Toughness Testing has been added to Laboratory Testing Inc.'s scope of A2LA accreditation to ISO/IEC 17025:2005 under the lab's Mechanical Testing certificate. In addition, the Boeing Company and GE Transportation - Aviation have approved LTI as a Source for fracture toughness testing and have added the test to their list of LTI approved processes.
Laboratory Testing Inc. (LTI) has added more polymer testing capabilities to the SEM/EDS and FTIR analyses previously available and can now provide tensile and hardness testing for these materials. Tensile testing measures tensile strength, yield and ductility while hardness testing determines a material's hardness value or resistance to indentation by penetration of an indenter into a sample.
Laboratory Testing Inc. (LTI) now provides Fracture Toughness Testing to measure the conditions under which an existing crack in a material will lengthen when subjected to prescribed loading conditions.
Laboratory Testing Inc. has expanded its A2LA accreditation to include an array of mechanical testing, metallurgical testing and chemical testing services. The testing laboratory has been A2LA accredited for dimensional testing and calibration services for over 20 years.
Laboratory Testing Inc. president received the ASM Philadelphia Chapter 2011 Eisenman Award in recognition of dedicated service to ASM, foresight, leadership and promotion of the metals industry and metallurgical education.
Growth in immersion and contact ultrasonic testing at Laboratory Testing Inc. has led to promotions in the NDT Ultrasonic Testing Department. Two UT Supervisors and an ultrasonic testing specialist for training, quoting and technical questions were announced.
Alan Fabiszewski has joined the Metallography Department at Laboratory Testing Inc. as a Metallurgist. He will perform various metallurgical testing and analysis methods to reveal material characteristics, to identify flaws and defects, and to carry out failure analysis and weld qualification.
The materials testing and ISO/IEC 17025 Nadcap accreditations have been renewed at Laboratory Testing Inc. by the Performance Review Institute (PRI). The new Nadcap certificates are valid through April 30, 2013.
Electrical calibration, temperature calibration and temperature uniformity surveys are A2LA accredited when performed by LTI Metrology, the calibration lab at Laboratory Testing Inc. All calibration services are NIST-traceable and temperature uniformity surveys are performed according to AMS2750D pyrometry requirements.
Laboratory Testing Inc. sponsored the ASM Materials Camp 2011 held at Drexel University for high school students interested in careers in materials testing and engineering. The students participated in instructional and practical sessions about materials throughout the week-long camp.
Electrical and temperature calibration were added to the scope of A2LA accreditation at Laboratory Testing Inc. Accreditation for dimensional testing, calibration of instruments and standards and field calibration was renewed through March 31, 2013.
Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR) is now performed at Laboratory Testing Inc. for analysis and identification of base polymers and additives in materials. FTIR spectroscopy also indicates the amount of material present and is therefore an excellent tool for both qualitative and quantitative analysis.
Laboratory Testing Inc. has promoted Marion Crooks to Chemistry Supervisor. In her new role, she oversees material characterization, element analysis, corrosion analysis, wet chemistry and positive material identification (PMI) services.
Laboratory Testing Inc. will be attending the SIBC Submarine Supplier Days and the ACIBC Action Days 2011 Conference in March 2011. Laboratory Testing Inc. provides materials analysis, metals testing, nondestructive testing and calibration services to companies that supply parts and materials to the submarine and aircraft carrier industries.
Three employees of Laboratory Testing Inc. have been appointed to supervisory positions in the areas of field calibration services, testing and calibration quality assurance, and IT. The laboratory has seen significant growth in sales and staff in recent years, resulting in the need for additional supervisors.
Laboratory Testing Inc. has promoted Lee Dilks to manager of the Chemistry and Metallography Labs. In his new role, he oversees materials testing, chemical analysis, corrosion testing, metallurgical analysis and failure analysis services.
