Length and Dimensional

Length hero

Our calibration services include measuring of a variety of forms of gauges including: blocks, rings, plugs, as well as electronic distance meters and linescales such as engineering rules, graticules, tapes and surveying staffs.  We also have the capability to measure optical flats and the roundness of an object or to perform 3-dimensional coordinate metrology on our traceable CMM.
