About Us

TMT Laboratories (a.k.a. Tension Member Technology or simply TMT) is primarily a large-scale mechanical test facility. Our 24,000-square-foot laboratory houses several large test machines with load frames, cylinders, and load cells that range in capacity from a few pounds to several million. These machines and their auxiliary equipment can be configured in various combinations to simulate a wide variety of mechanical service situations. To compliment the mechanical testing, TMT also keeps a large suite of electrical and optical test equipment that can be used to monitor various test parameters during mechanical or stand-alone tests.

Since we opened our doors in 1976, we have worked with the oil & gas, telecommunication, military & defense, space & aviation, oceanographic, shipping, automotive, construction, and recreation industries. During this time, we have developed world-renowned expertise in the testing and optimizing of rope and cable systems. Despite our attraction to ropes and cables, we are always looking for new areas to apply our resources. Our test machines, diverse instrumentation, data acquisition equipment, and experienced engineers are ready to tackle a wide range of testing needs.
