Dimensional Calibration


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

Our dimensional laboratory is state of the art. The workhorse here is our Pratt & Whitney Labmaster Universal 1000A automated ID/OD/SD* gage calibration and part measuring system with a 40 inch (1016 mm) direct reading range. Features include laser interferometer, computer control, air bearings, bi-directional probes, constant measuring force, and flexible fixturing. These features offer guaranteed repeatability and operator independent reproducibility with unmatched speed.

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.
