DOST’S AUTO PARTS TESTING FACILITY (Above) Department of Science and Technology (DOST) Assistant Secretary and Metals Industry Research and Development Center (MIRDC) Officer-in-Charge Roberto O. Dizon (left) accompanies DTI Undersecretary Adrian Cristobal (middle) and other guests during a site tour of the Auto-Parts Testing Facility inside the Taguig City compound of MIRDC, an R&D institute under the DOST system. Launched last June 18, 2015, the facility will serve as a testing center for local parts manufacturers to improve product quality and at the same time minimize expenses otherwise used for overseas testing. It has a range of equipment for testing services such as hardness measurement of metallic material and rubber, thickness measurement for base metal, simulated crash analysis, tire endurance testing, and accelerated corrosion tests. Among these is the 200T Universal Testing Machine (below), an electronic-mechanical material testing machine. (Photos by Ceajay N. Valerio, S&T Media Service, DOST-STII)
