METROLOGY

Our Calibration laboratory is SANAS Accredited in accordance with the recognised International Standard ISO/IEC 17025:2005


Accredited facility number: 833 Force Metrology also accredited for onsite calibration on force and accredited facility number: 033 Dimensional Metrology.


Applied or industrial metrology concerns the application of measurement science to manufacturing and other processes and their use in society, ensuring the suitability of measurement instruments, their calibration and quality control of measurements.

Metrology is defined by the International Bureau of Weights and Measures  (BIPM) as "the science of measurement, embracing both experimental  and theoretical  determinations at any level of uncertainty in any field of science and technology.

A core concept in metrology is (metrological) traceability , defined as "the property of the result of a measurement or the value of a standard whereby it can be related to stated references, usually national or international standards, through an unbroken chain of comparisons, all having stated uncertainties." The level of traceability establishes the level of comparability of the measurement: whether the result of a measurement can be compared to the previous one, a measurement result a year ago, or to the result of a measurement performed anywhere else in the world.

Traceability is most often obtained by calibration , establishing the relation between the indication of a measuring instrument and the value of a measurement standard.

Calibration is the process where metrology is applied to measurement equipment and processes to ensure conformity with a known standard of measurement, usually traceable to a national standards board.
