Mechanical Laboratory

In particular, the Mechanical Laboratory focuses on testing of essential mechanical properties of, in particular, ferrous and non-ferrous metals as well as plastics and composites, components/semi-finished products, and final products as well.

The Mechanical Laboratory has available in-house shop for production of test specimens and special test jigs.



Offered services

The tests are mostly certified and conducted according to the standards: ČSN EN, ASTM

Standard tests

  • Tensile test (RT up to 1050 °C) *mini TAH
  • Pressure test
  • Bend test
  • Notch toughness test (-150 °C up to +800 °C)
  • Hardness measurement tests (Vickers, Brinell, Rockwell)

Fatigue tests

  • Low-cycle fatigue
  • High-cycle fatigue (RT up to 1050 °C)

Fracture toughness tests

  • KIC
  • J-R Curve
  • Fatigue crack propagation speed measurement
  • Determination of threshold value of strain intensity factor for fatigue crack propagation

Creep tests

  • Creep test – tests with measured elongation
  • SR test 
  • Relaxing tests

Special tests

  • Mini Tensile Test – analogy of classic tension test conducted on a mini test body Very low quantity of the material is needed. The results are comparable to results obtained with the use of a standard sample for tensile test.

Engineering Production

  • NC milling
  • Cutting Wire cutting
  • Flat and round grinding
  • Surface finishes, and more according to agreement with customer
  • We produce bolts, nuts, pins, nozzles, rivets, sleeves, rings, test bodies, and more

Transport, delivery dates

Transport of material for test

Customer arranges for transport at their costs or may use automatic pick-up service for free. Customer only packs the material/VZUP will pick it up, perform required tests, and send back the protocols with results to the customer.


Delivery date

Regarding common jobs, we deliver the results to the customer in 3–5 business days. Individual agreement applies to complex jobs.


We can run tests of the test specimens from the tiniest dimensions up to standard sizes. Our staff registers each sample and the procedure selected by the customer is followed, i.e. the tests may be run under strict parameters of the determined standards and certification, up to individual configuration of the test parameters according to desire of the customer.

We pay detail attention to all jobs. In particular, we focus on small-lot jobs. Where many companies reject you, we are ready to help, including expert assessment of the material embodiment.
