Garber Metrology provides expert calibration services for measuring equipment, including micrometers. These devices offer high accuracy for measuring dimensions down to 0.000050 of an inch. They work using a screw that moves the measuring anvils toward each other, while another screw displays measurements large enough to read.
Over time, these devices might lose accuracy as the material wears down or if the device sustains damage. Calibration keeps your measurements accurate so you can measure with confidence and save money by making products the correct size the first time.
The first step for calibrating a micrometer is to inspect its physical appearance. Expert technicians will begin by cleaning any dirt from the measuring anvils. Then, they will perform close observations to verify that the geometric shape has not become distorted. They will adjust the device to ensure the spindle moves smoothly through its entire measuring path.
After ensuring that the mechanical components look and perform as they should, technicians use several gage blocks or other standards with a precise length, checking about three to five points for accuracy. If the measurements do not fall within an acceptable range, technicians can adjust the equipment or suggest repairs.
Once calibrated correctly, a micrometer provides precise measurements ideal for several applications, including military and commercial aerospace, medical and machining. These industries require highly accurate measurements to ensure compliance with standards and keep product output consistent with key specifications.
At Garber Metrology, we have over four decades of experience calibrating many types of measuring equipment, resulting in an in-depth knowledge of dimensional calibration. We calibrate equipment for measuring thickness, angles, diameter, length and width.
We also comply with various third-party standards to ensure the best outcomes for our customers. Garber Metrology is an ISO 9001:2015 registered company and holds ISO/IEC 17025:2017 and ANSI/NCSL Z540-1-1994 accreditations. We certify every calibration with a Certificate of Calibration that is traceable to NIST.
We provide expert calibration services on-site in customer facilities and our temperature- and humidity-controlled laboratories. We also follow a comprehensive Quality Program encompassing everything from planning proper testing to seeking continual process improvements to refine our services for our customers.
