Westmoreland Mechanical Testing & Research (WMT&R) Ltd offers a range of standard and special one-off testing services for customers in the automotive, aerospace, nuclear, offshore and medical industries. Our state-of-the-art facilities enable us to mechanically or chemically test almost any material in virtually any shape or form, and as one of the largest independent testing companies in Europe, we’re also able to provide a range of more specialised services in specific areas such as surface engineering technology, bonding, and corrosion. Due to high demand, WMT&R Ltd was able to double its testing capacity within the first year of operation, and we continue to expand our testing facilities to cater for an even wider customer base. We’re now able to offer excellent metallographic support, pneumatic coating, adhesion testing, chemical analysis, and also Lockheed testing - all alongside our highly popular mechanical testing services that we have run since 2003. We also operate a fully equipped CNC machine shop that enables production of test specimens onsite. Despite our rapid growth, we have never lost sight of what's important - the quality of our services are still second to none, and our levels of customer support and attention are unrivalled anywhere in the industry.

The WMT&R Analytical Lab works in close cooperation with our physical and metallographic laboratories as a problem-solving tool in case of material failures. You can also rely on our Analytical department as an independent source for reliable material overcheck testing, referee testing and product verification testing.
The use of conclusive spectrometer technology in conjunction with ICP and Graphite Furnace AA eliminates the need for lengthy wet chemical tests and thus ensures a fast turnaround.
Optical Emission Spectrometry (OES or Arc Spark) allows fast and accurate analysis of metals and their alloys in accordance with the most common quality standards required by the metal production and metal testing industries.
At WMT&R Ltd, we recognise the need for specialist testing services for composite materials, and have therefore developed a number of composite-specific tests for ferrous and non-ferrous thermoplastics, thermoset polymers, fibres, filers and adhesives. These include:
