Dimensional Calibration

Does size really matter? Here at ICS it really does!

Instrument Calibration Solutions dimensional laboratory is the epitome of state of the art. Here at ICS we house “The Standard of Accuracy”. Our Pratt and Whitney LMU 1000A utilizes a digital interferometer that measures internal and external dimensions by comparing the measurement probe to the wavelength of a highly stabilized helium neon laser. Our LABMASTER® Model 1000A provides the most accurate means of linear dimension measurement available in the world. Couple this with a highly trained staff, capable of providing industry leading calibration on a vast array of dimensional test equipment, and you have the source of accuracy.

Of course this would not be of much use without keeping the environment stable. For this we designed our dimensional laboratory to be temperature stable. Utilizing a dedicated closed loop Liebert environment management system, ICS maintains the the temperature at a rock solid 20° celsius and humidity is maintained at 45% relative humidity.

In addition ICS maintains an extensive selection of ancillary calibration instruments to service a broad range of dimensional measurement equipment. We also maintain a secondary laser measurement device, the Optodyne Laser Doppler Displacement Meter. With this our highly trained technicians can tackle some off the beaten path calibrations to include surface plates and tape measures, and even machine tool linear distance calibration.

Non contact measurement is achieved with our OGP Avant Video Measuring System. With this ICS maintains the ability to provide 3 Dimensional measurements on customers custom gaging fixtures as well as direct calibration of steel rulers and radius gages.

We’ll make it all better… At ICS we take a holistic approach to calibration. Prior to bringing instruments into the dimensional lab, everything is cleaned and inspected for damage, anything that may invalidate calibrations and or hurt our test instruments is a bad thing. We use the highest quality cleaning materials and an ultrasonic cleaner as necessary. From there it’s up to our awesome technicians to further clean, lubricate, adjust and repair as necessary.
