Torque and Mass Calibration

torque and mass calibration services

Proper torque and mass calibration are an essential function for relevant metrology equipment to ensure it displays accurate readings. Regular calibration mitigates or eliminates potential errors caused by inaccurate measurements, improving the repeatable accuracy and reliability of instruments used in critical processes.

A variety of instruments utilized in your operation may require precise calibration, including torque devices, load cells, scales, balances, and weights. Our torque calibration and mass calibration services can be conducted on-site at your facility or in our labs. Regional pickup and delivery services are available.

Torque Calibration

Torque calibration must be performed on instruments that apply torque during production stages. During torque calibration, the amount of torque an instrument produces is compared to the allowable tolerance, allowing our accredited staff to determine if the instrument requires adjustment. Torque wrench calibration, for example, ensures the instrument delivers exact tension to the fastener for safety and proper functioning.

The torque calibration process ensures reliable measurement and traceability. Torque calibration requirements come from various sources, including manufacturer specifications, federal and international specifications, ANSI/ANME standards, and customer requirements.

Torque calibration services utilize a variety of torque calibration tools, such as:

  • Torque transducers
  • Tensiometers
  • Torque wheels
  • Calibration hex step adapters
  • Weights
  • Loading benches

These tools are used to calibrate a range of torque-applying instruments, including:

  • Torque sensors
  • Torque multipliers
  • Torque screwdrivers
  • Torque watches
  • Torque wrenches

Mass Calibration

Mass calibration is used to deliver accurate weights both pre- and post-production for the safety, efficacy, and performance of manufactured goods. Mass calibration ensures instruments and production processes are stable, repeatable, and controlled, providing precision measurements with a high degree of accuracy.

Mass calibration must be performed in a temperature-controlled laboratory to ensure the stabilization of weights and instruments prior to and during the process. A variety of scales and weights are utilized to conduct mass calibration services at a range of weights and accuracies, providing weight comparison via scale compared to mass values or known standards.

Garber Metrology is equipped to perform mass calibrations of various weights and accuracies for a variety of instruments and myriad weight and mass standards. Our mass calibration services and certifications include:
