Force Calibration

Load Cell, Force Gauge Calibration and More

Instruments such as dynamometers, force gauges and load cells are dependent on accurate force calibration in order to consistently deliver their specified performance. LTI Metrology can provide the force calibration you need to keep your equipment in top working condition:

  • Force calibrationForce gauge, dynamometer and load cell calibration are performed using equipment with tension and compression capacities to over 100,000 LBF.
  • NIST traceability
  • A2LA accreditation to ISO/IEC 17025.

LTI Metrology has a proven track record for:

  • Dependable results
  • Reasonable turnaround
  • Affordable pricing
  • Extensive list of services

Some more reasons LTI Metrology has earned a reputation as a leader in calibration services and certified reporting include:

  • Expedited service is available when you need your calibration results faster than our standard turnaround.
  • Pick-up and delivery services are available for customers local to our facility.
  • All results of your force calibration service will be clearly detailed in a Calibration Certificate, a report also covering “As Found” and “As Left” conditions, adjustments or repairs.

The Force Calibration Process

Force calibration is performed in one of two ways at LTI depending on the weight capacity of the equipment being tested.

  • Often times, equipment with a capacity below 500 LBF will be calibrated using a hand-held dead weight test for tension and compression.
  • Instruments over this weight capacity are generally tested on a computerized force calibration machine with a capacity of 100,000 LBF. Force transducers in three ranges are available for use.

The first step is exercising the customer’s equipment to be sure it is in working order for the process to follow. Next, the appropriate equipment is selected and the standard is set. A 5 point calibration will be run for most instruments at every 20 percent of capacity, although a higher accuracy instrument will require 10 points at 10 percent of capacity.

One-Source Calibration

LTI Metrology, the calibration lab at Laboratory Testing Inc., is located in Hatfield, Pennsylvania (USA) in the suburbs of Philadelphia. As a full-service calibration laboratory, we hope you’ll enjoy the convenience of working with one source for all of your calibration needs.
