What we do


Welcome to our calibration information page! We are a professional calibration service provider committed to delivering high-quality calibration solutions to meet our clients’ needs. Our services cover a broad range of industries, including aerospace, automotive, medical, telecommunications, and more.

What is calibration, and why is it important?

Calibration is the process of verifying and adjusting the performance of an instrument or equipment to ensure that it provides accurate measurements or readings. Calibration is critical for maintaining the integrity of data and for ensuring that products or services meet regulatory standards. Accurate measurements are essential in various industries where precise readings can affect product quality, safety, and reliability.

Our Calibration Services

Our calibration services are designed to meet the diverse needs of our clients. We offer on-site calibration, in-house calibration, and remote calibration services for a wide range of instruments and equipment. Our experienced team of technicians uses state-of-the-art calibration equipment to provide accurate and reliable calibration services.

On-site Calibration

We understand that some clients prefer to have their equipment calibrated on-site. Therefore, we offer on-site calibration services to minimize downtime and reduce the costs associated with shipping and handling. Our on-site calibration services are conducted by our experienced technicians who can perform the calibration process quickly and efficiently.

In-house Calibration

We also offer in-house calibration services for clients who prefer to send their equipment to our facility. Our in-house calibration services provide a controlled environment that ensures accurate and reliable calibration results. We use advanced calibration equipment and follow strict procedures to ensure that your equipment is calibrated to the highest standards.

Remote Calibration

For clients who need calibration services for equipment that is difficult to move or is located in a remote area, we offer remote calibration services. Our remote calibration services use advanced technologies to perform calibration services without the need for on-site visits. We can provide remote calibration services for a wide range of instruments and equipment.

Understanding Calibration Weights:

  1. Purpose: Calibration weights are precision instruments used to verify and adjust the accuracy of weighing scales and balances. They serve as reference standards for calibration procedures.
  2. Accuracy: Calibration weights are manufactured to very tight tolerances and are traceable to national or international standards, ensuring their accuracy.
  3. Material: Calibration weights are typically made from stainless steel, brass, or other materials with low magnetic susceptibility to minimize interference during calibration.
  4. Classification: Calibration weights are classified based on their accuracy class, which indicates the permissible error tolerance. Common classes include E1, E2, F1, F2, M1, and M2, with E1 being the most accurate.
  5. Weight Range: Calibration weights are available in a wide range of masses, from fractions of a milligram to several kilograms, to accommodate various calibration requirements.
  6. Handling and Storage: Proper handling and storage are essential to maintain the accuracy of calibration weights. They should be handled with care, kept clean, and stored in protective cases or environments to prevent damage or contamination.
  7. Calibration Procedures: Calibration weights are used in conjunction with calibration procedures prescribed by regulatory bodies or equipment manufacturers. These procedures involve comparing the readings of the weighing instrument against known standard weights and adjusting the instrument as necessary to ensure accuracy.
  8. Frequency of Calibration: The frequency of calibration depends on factors such as the type of weighing instrument, its usage environment, and regulatory requirements. Regular calibration intervals are necessary to ensure the ongoing accuracy of weighing equipment.
  9. Traceability: Calibration weights should be accompanied by certificates of calibration that document their traceability to national or international standards, assuring their accuracy.
  10. Importance: Proper calibration using accurate calibration weights is crucial for ensuring the reliability and consistency of weighing measurements in various applications, including laboratory testing, manufacturing processes, and commercial transactions.

By understanding the key aspects of calibration weights and their role in the calibration process, users can maintain the accuracy and integrity of their weighing instruments, ensuring reliable measurement results.
