New Materials Testing Hub for the Black Country
Rubery Owen is delighted to announce that three of its businesses in the materials testing sectors, Rotech Laboratories, Phoenix Materials Testing and Merlin Powder Characterisation, will operate under the umbrella of the newly-formed Rubery Owen Materials Testing Division.
Each business will trade as a distinct company and maintain their current premises but will enjoy the collaboration of expertise and innovation at a new combined testing facility and laboratory.
Rubery Owen is developing a state-of-the art testing facility in Brierley Hill, in the heart of the Black Country. The new site will combine the latest in high temperature, humidity and pressure testing capabilities along with current fatigue and thermomechanical fatigue (TMF) testing. It will also house the Merlin powder characterisation test facility in which the physical properties and compressibility of powders are determined by use of an hydraulic compaction simulator. This unique, cutting-edge facility will help to keep the UK at the forefront of testing technology.
