Marine engineering is an area incorporating elements of mechanical, electrical, software and safety engineering for sailboats, tankers, submarines and other marine vessels. Stringent performance and safety-critical criteria must be met to operate and produce successful vessels.
You might be a supplier of components, sub-assemblies or replacement parts used on marine vessels. In all cases, your reputation depends on compliance with industry standards, internal specifications and customer expectations at every level.
Our customers from the marine industry use our test solutions for a wide range of quality-control testing applications including testing:
- pull-off strength of terminals for welded and crimped joints on marine cables
- insertion/withdrawal forces of electrical connectors
- tensile strength of riveted metal joints
- tensile strength of underwater lift bags
- tensile strength of fishing nets
- actuation force of switches on emergency beacons, tracking and monitoring devices
- torque to actuate rotary controls
- compression and tensile properties of springs
- load characteristics of small motors
- shear and tensile strength of fasteners
- peel strength of composite materials used in vessels
Force, materials and torque test equipment from Mecmesin offer you versatile, practical solutions to your quality control requirements at an attractive price. We have over 40 years of experience in delivering test solutions to the defence industry.
Mecmesin testing solutions are used by leading manufacturers and engineering companies across the world, whether it be at the component, assembly or full-build levels.
Test to ASTM, BS EN, ISO, DEF, DIN, CEN, MIL standards.
We also have a wealth of experience in the more general transport industry sector.
We use the Mecmesin MultiTest 10-i system to perform regular quality control tests to guarantee the quality of our supplied materials. Mecmesin provided us with a cost-effective solution to our needs and exceptional customer service. I would have no hesitation in recommending them to other companies with materials testing requirements.

Prior to purchasing the machine, test patches were taken off safety nets before their due date and kept until a batch were sent to our suppliers, which involved parcelling up and visiting the post office to send away for testing. This was time-consuming and expensive. Now we can test as and when required. We chose Mecmesin because they were the most helpful when enquiries were made.

"We have made pull-out tests for many years, but with our new equipment, we get the result much quicker and with better accuracy. We can rapidly prepare and perform advanced tests and present the result in a more precise way for both customers and our colleagues, within research and development. The new equipment enables studies of how much force is needed to make a cable or pipe start moving within a seal. The test fixture was developed at CA Mätsystem AB (Mecmesin’s distributor) in Sweden, especially for Roxtec products, in order to enable a thorough testing of all existing Roxtec solutions. All results are stored in a database providing extended knowledge for future product development, as well as, useful information for customers and sales people."
