When talking with prospects and customers, testing machine manufacturers often come across symptoms that imply the current situation could be improved dramatically with a new investment in technology, specifically a well-engineered materials testing system.
Ductility is defined as the
ability of a material to deform plastically before fracturing. Its measurement
is of interest to those conducting metal forming processes, to designers of
machines and structures, and to those responsible for assessing the quality of
a material as it is being produced.
