Mechanical Calibration

Our mechanical calibration services cover a number of metrology disciplines including; Length, Force, Mass, Torque, Vibration, Pressure and Viscosity. The laboratory is housed within a temperature controlled environment to maintain thermal stability of both the reference standards and instruments under test.

We realise the performance and accuracy of your mechanical, dimensional and physical test equipment is critical to your organisation success so we use high quality, reliable reference standards for our calibration tasks. We pride ourselves on providing professional mechanical calibration services to ensure your measurement instruments are accurate, reliable and traceable. Due to the frequent handling, mechanical shock and exposure to various atmospheric conditions, it is inevitable that mechanical instruments will be subject to drift. To understand this drift during itsí operational service, a regular calibration schedule is required to determine the measurement shift between subsequent calibrations and to determine tolerance limits for the measurement uncertainty budget.

Force Gauge Calibration in tension and compression up to 50 kN for the calibration of load cells, force gauges and push/pull gauges.

Torque Wrench Calibration covering 1 to 1000 Nm for the calibration of torque wrenches and torque screwdrivers. Calibration can be undertaken to a selection of standards upon request, from BS 7882:2008, DIN 51309:2005 or BS ENISO 6789-1.

Balance and Scale Calibration from 1 mg to 500 kg for the calibration of laboratory balances, benchtop balances, benchtop scales, floor scales, aircraft scales, hanging scales, personal weigh scales and load cell platforms.

Viscosity Cup Calibration for an extensive range of cup sizes and procedural standards for paints, inks and varnishes, including Zahn cup, Ford cup, Shell, GardCo, Parlin, Fisher and Frikmar, covering all relevant standards from ISO 2431, ASTM D1200, BS 3900 (1971) and DIN 53221. All our viscosity standards are certified standards traceable to an ISO/IEC 17025 accredited supplier.

Accelerometer Calibration can be provided for test accelerometers from 1 Hz to 10 kHz covering Endevco, DJB, Dytran, PCB, Environmental Equipments, Bruel and Kjaer, Analog and Omega models. Vibration testing can be conducted for products up to 10 kg mass.

All our mechanical, dimensional and physical calibrations are conducted under the guidelines of ISO/IEC 17025 throughout the laboratory process, including certificate reporting, measurements and traceability. A range of onsite calibration services are available for the support of automotive and aviation repair workshops. If you require, your calibrations can be added to our recall database for email reminders 30, 60 and 90 days prior to calibration due date.
