Force and torque

CALIBRATION OF MEASURING INSTRUMENTS THAT MEASURE FORCE AND TORQUE

AS Metrosert calibrates measuring instruments that measure tension and compressive force in the range to 500 kN, devices generating force in the range to 2 MN.

Measuring instruments that measure torque are calibrated in the range from 0.1 N·m to 3000 N·m.

The most common calibrated measuring instruments are:

  • dynamometers;
  • force transducers;
  • tension testers;
  • test machines and presses operating on tension and/or compression;
  • dynamometric wrenches;
  • torque testers, torque testing units;
  • vehicle braking force measurement benches.

MEASUREMENT

AS Metrosert offers measurements of force and torque (for instance whether the product withstands nominal load).

TRACEABILITY

The measurements of force and torque are traceable to the measurement standards of the Finnish national measurement standards laboratory VTT Mikes, RISE (Swedish Metrology Institute), GUM (Polish metrology authority) and HBM GmbH (German calibration laboratory).
