Dimensional Inspection

A Closer Look: Verifying Dimensional Accuracy

Dimensional metrologyDimensional inspection, also called dimensional metrology, assesses the geometric characteristics of parts and products to assure their compliance with design specifications. Dimensional inspection verifies the accuracy of product features that can affect reliability and functionality, and can be a critical step during product development or following production.

LTI Metrology at Laboratory Testing Inc. performs dimensional inspection on surface and specialty features of machined parts and products, including internal and external fastener threads.

The Lab has all the necessary qualifications:

  • First article inspection and third-party dimensional metrology services are performed according to NAS, MS and ANSI specifications.
  • Dimensional inspection and measurement capabilities are accredited to ISO/IEC 17025 by A2LA.
  • All instrumentation used in the dimensional metrology lab is traceable to NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology).

Providing the Most Reliable Results

Optical comparator dimensional inspectionLTI Metrology near Philadelphia, PA gives customers the measurement information they need for product verification and quality control, so they can get their products to the marketplace and stay ahead of the competition. For the highest degree of accuracy, we minimize factors that contribute to measurement uncertainty:

  • Dimensional inspection services are performed in an environmentally-controlled laboratory with regulated temperature and humidity.
  • Our dimensional metrology inspectors are thoroughly trained to interpret customer prints.
