Dimensional Calibration Process

To perform dimensional calibration services, we compare a measurement standard with your measuring instruments’ output to verify your results are accurate. Your devices must measure with a degree of accuracy that meets or exceeds customer and industry standards to receive a Certificate of Calibration. We also share all information about necessary adjustments and repairs.

7 Common Types of Dimensional Calibration

Dimensional calibration equipment measures an object’s physical size. Depending on the tool, these dimensions may include thickness, angles, diameter, length, and width. This equipment can also measure geometrical properties for companies that machine parts. Some of these characteristics include the parts’ profiles, hole positions, parallelism, and flatness.

Manufacturing environments utilize dimensional equipment to monitor their products’ adherence to their processes. Plus, verifying parts’ dimensions ensures components are interchangeable and properly assembled.

Your quality control department must ensure all dimensional equipment receives routine testing and calibration. Without these inspections and adjustments, your company may not be able to measure parts accurately. For some manufacturers, dimensional tools must meet federal and industrial specifications.

Our technicians use industry best practices to calibrate various dimensional measurement tools. The seven most common types of physical dimensional calibration are:

  • Caliper
  • Gage block
  • Plain plug
  • Plain ring
  • Thread plug
  • Thread ring
  • Micrometer
