Scales are checked for accuracy, linearity and corner load. Traceable weights are used to test and calibrate. Scales are adjusted to a national standard or manufacturer’s tolerances.

Balances are checked for accuracy, linearity, repeatability and corner load. Polished stainless steel, class 1 weights are used to calibrate your balances. Accurate calibration weights allow us to have the lowest possible uncertainties when servicing your equipment.

If requested, a calibration certificate is generated. This certificate includes important data, such as: before and after values, date of calibration, environmental conditions, and expressed uncertainty, as well as other information requested for certification. This certificate meets or exceeds all ISO9000 and QS9000 criteria.

A calibration sticker is applied to the instrument to show the technician, serial number, calibration date and next calibration due date. Any problems found with the unit are communicated to the end user.
