Calibration and Dimensional Testing (Inspection)

How can you ensure accurate measurement of factors, including temperature, torque, pressure, flow and light?

Digital or analogue, precision instruments in use across a range of industries require calibration. Inaccurate measurements will distort your findings, whether you are verifying temperatures, flow, pressure or weights and measures. Events giving rise to the need for calibration include:

  • New instruments
  • Repair or modification of an instrument
  • Before/after a critical measurement
  • Sudden shock, weather change or exposure to adverse conditions
  • Surrogate instruments disagree, or observations appear questionable
  • Client/manufacturer requirement

Calibration ensures that your equipment performs within approved tolerances and delivers on safety and quality. Incorrect measurements compromise not only your reputation, but also safety and quality.
