Testing and Technical Consultancy Services

 

At CATRA, our metallurgists and system engineers provide an end to end service for our clients. At the product development stage we provide consultancy on the design and manufacture of cutlery, kitchenware & food processing blades used in the food industry. This includes materials selection & processing techniques to be compliant with standards and ultimately produce a quality item of cutlery. During manufacture we are also able to qualify products through environmental testing, such as corrosion resistance & blade sharpness and durability. Finally, we are on hand for retail organisations to ensure quality standards in manufacturing are being achieved and also undertake failure and root cause analysis of those products that have been returned by the customer.

Our consultancy services also extend to surgical instruments, razor blades and specialist applications such as stab vest assessment standards.

We have also developed specialist test equipment for specific client applications such as the durability of scissors and folding knife mechanisms.
