Material Testing

When looking for new equipment to add to your process peace of mind is worth its weight in gold. General Kinematics is dedicated to achieving that peace of mind for our customers by testing your material on our products while you watch. Though GK has done material testing for our customers since day one, in 2004 General Kinematics broke ground on a new state of the art 2,100ft² Process and Application Lab. Ensuring our equipment is engineered to optimize both throughput and effectiveness, testing with your material is key. We even take it a step further. General Kinematics offers to test your material while you watch in person at the GK lab or via a private video link. Expert lab technicians will perform your test from start to finish, ensuring that you receive the maximum GK difference. The results are never in question when buying GK.
