Frequently Asked Questions

How often should I have my metrology equipment calibrated?

The frequency of calibration depends on factors such as the type of equipment, its usage and the criticality of the measurements. In general, we recommend annual calibrations for most metrology equipment. However, some equipment may require more frequent calibrations, especially if it is used in harsh environments or for critical applications. We recommend consulting with our experts to determine the optimal calibration schedule for your specific needs.

What types of metrology equipment can you calibrate?

We calibrate a wide range of metrology equipment, including CMMs, portable measurement arms, laser radar, form, surface finish and vision measuring systems. Our expertise extends to both contact and non-contact measurement technologies, ensuring that we can meet the diverse needs of our customers. If you have a specific piece of equipment that you need calibrated, please contact us to discuss your requirements.

How long does the calibration process take?

The duration of the calibration process varies depending on the complexity of the equipment and the level of calibration required. Simple calibrations can be completed in a matter of hours, while more complex calibrations may take several days. We strive to complete calibrations as efficiently as possible while maintaining the highest standards of quality. We will provide you with an estimated timeline before beginning the calibration process, and we will keep you informed of any changes or delays.
