Measuring instruments and references

We calibrate measuring instruments in our laboratories, as well as at site.

Perhaps the first thought that arises when calibration is concerned is that of equipment and instruments that are sent to SP in Borås for calibration at one of its national standards laboratories, covering everything from mechanical to electrical quantities.  But, as with other quantities, dimensions are no exception, and so calibration of larger references, surface plates and other types of custom measurement equipment are examples of equipment that we calibrate at site.

Geometrical and dimensional metrology

We perform shop-floor geometrical and dimensional assurance, as well as LSM (Large-Scale Metrology).Read more...

Fixtures and assembly jigs

A common application is on-site inspection/calibration of for example machining- or welding fixtures.Read more...

Machines and automation equipment

Our services to the manufacturing industries include inspection of machine tools, presses and industrial robots, whether as stand-alone units or as parts of production processes.Read more...

Inspection of large parts

We help to assure the accuracy of larger products. Read more...

Calibration of tanks and containers

Tanks are often used as measuring equipment for trade in, for example, petroleum products. Read more...

Documentation – Temporary installations or permanent plants

In many cases, our measurements provide data that can be used directly as input for other purposes or applications. The results can then be used, if necessary, to create 3D models or in other visualisation processes. Read more...
