The CSIR mechanical laboratory in Cottesloe, Johannesburg, houses two of the largest mechanical testing machines in South Africa. Established in 1935 as the government mechanical laboratory by the then Department of Mines, the facility was intended to serve the mining and other industries. Today, it continues to play an important role in testing industrial products and materials to ensure that safety standards are adhered to.
