UKAS Laboratory

Smiths Technical Services

UKAS Laboratory

We offer comprehensive metallurgical support for our customers, courtesy of our UKAS Accredited Testing Laboratory. The facility is based at our central warehousing and processing facility in Biggleswade.

A Unique Proposition

Our laboratory forms part of Smiths Technical Services, which is a department that offers a variety of support services for our customers. Our UKAS lab not only provides approved testing methods in such areas as impact testing and chemical analysis. We can also inspect the integrity of material supplied and establish if there is an issue with the material. In certain instances, we have made discoveries where the machining process has been damaging material. This information can prove invaluable as often some simple setup changes will result in trouble-free machining.

Independent Testing

We not only provide laboratory support for engineering materials we have supplied; we also offer independent material testing as a separate service too.
