Process Evaluation Lab

The Process Evaluation Laboratory supports measurement and testing, primarily in the areas of plastics processing and metal casting. The climate-controlled atmosphere enables the testing of mechanical, thermal, chemical and physical properties of industrial materials. The lab features state-of-the-industry melt index, thermal distortion, tensile/comprehensive, hardness, UV and sand testing equipment.

Students gain hands-on experience in standardized industrial testing procedures sanctioned by organizations such as the American Society for Testing and Material  and the American Foundry Society.
