Instron’s calibration services not only meet industry and international regulatory standards, but also routinely exceed them. As the leading provider of high accuracy instruments and the first materials testing company to use strain gauge load cell technology, we take pride in knowing that our calibrations are of the highest quality.
Instron’s accredited calibrations cover a wider range of forces than other providers, enabling usage of test systems to both lower forces and higher forces without the need for changing transducers or purchasing new. Our accreditation by NVLAP under Lab Code 200301-0 to ISO/IEC 17025 ensures that Instron has proven technical competence and necessary quality systems in the place to ensure consistently delivered calibrations which maximize customer confidence.
Force Calibration Standards
ASTM E4 and ISO 7500-1 are the two internationally recognized standard methods for verifying the force measuring capability of materials testing machines. Verifying equipment to either of these standards is a low-risk way to assure that their force transducers have been calibrated properly and to reduce the risk of providing inaccurate results from the instrument.
