Summary

Tensile testing is an informative and popular means by which to tell the ability of sheet metal to be formed or resist deformation. But such testing is valueless without the use of statistical controls. Following ASTM standards and limits, Inland prepares control specimens on which to perform tensile strength tests, the results of which are then recorded on XR charts to act as statistical controls for future testing.
