Materials Testing for Quality Control / Quality Assurance

Testing, Analysis and Inspection for Quality Control and Quality Assurance

ASTM International and ISO Standards

From raw material analysis to final part evaluation, Shimadzu provides a complete range of instrumentation to meet your requirements. Shimadzu instruments are designed to ease conformance with recognized standardized testing protocols such as ASTM D638, D790 and D695 mechanical property test standards.


ASTM Method Applications

ASTM D5379
V-Notched Bean Testing (Iosipescu) of CFRP

ASTM D6484
Open-Hole Compression (OHC) Testing of CFRP


ASTM D6641
Combined Loading Compressions (CLC) Testing of CFRP

ASTM D7078

Compositional Verification of Incoming Materials and Evaluation of Plating

EDX-7000/8000 Energy Dispersive X-Ray Fluorescence Spectrometers

EDX-7000/8000 Energy Dispersive X-Ray Fluorescence Spectrometer

This series of spectrometers is ideal for verifying the composition (i.e. judging contaminants) of materials procured overseas or analyzing toxic elements for compliance with the ELV directive. It can also be used to evaluate the amount of plating attached to bead wire and steel cord used in tires and to measure the weight of zinc phosphate chemical conversion coatings.

Component Analysis / Defect Analysis of Polymer Materials for Interiors

Infrared Microscope Measuring System
IRTracer-100 FTIR Spectrophotometer

This system can judge the materials of plastics and rubber used in automobile interior parts and battery materials, and can easily analyze their components, deterioration, and defects. Combined use of this system with a microscope is also effective for analysis of substructures.

Testing Automotive Gears

HMV-G Series Micro Hardness Testers

The system detects the gear edges and measures the hardness inside the gear. Also, the test force can be changed for each test position. (patent pending)
