HBM is offering a new simplified DAkkS accredited service. This has been designed to reduce time and cost for the calibration of force transducers used either for industrial measurement technology to monitor production, or those utilised in test benches for research and development.
The service provides very high accuracy with measurement uncertainty ranging from 0.005% to 0.02% of the actual value. In addition the calibration service covers a range from 2.5 N to 5 MN for tensile and compressive force; this is the largest range available through DAkkS. The reference standards used are regularly verified by comparison measurements with the PTB (Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt, the German Metrology Institute).
In addition, the service ensures that audits can be reliably passed, with every calibrated transducer authenticated with a certificate that automatically provides proof of traceability. The certificate also includes a statement of measurement uncertainty and conformity to ensure ease in passing audits
