Vernier Caliper Calibration in accordance with BS EN ISO13385-1: 2011
AMECaL offers a wide ranging Dimensional Metrology Service, of which the most popular element is Vernier Caliper Calibration. These instruments are extremely accurate as they include essentially two measuring scales, the standard calliper with vernier scale attached. Accuracy and calibration on these instruments can be down as a low as a tenth of a millimetre, some we have seen even go as low as a hundredth. The high level of accuracy and general use of these instruments means periodic calibration is an absolute necessity.
Vernier Calipers are used in a variety of industries from healthcare to manufacturing, with the main function being the measurement of an object’s inside and outside diameter. Regular calibration of these devices in accordance with National Standards ensures accurate readings for the user, this is extremely important in manufacturing or product design companies where inaccuracies in measurement can lead to costly redesign or recall of products further down the line.
Historically AMECaL does not see dimensional measurements drift as much over time as something like torque, so recommends Vernier Caliper Calibration at least once every 12 months. The use and treatment of the instrument obviously impacts on its accuracy, so extensively used items may need more regular calibration. It is often worthwhile looking at calibration results over time to see the amount of drift in the measurement when compared to the standard; this can help to set the frequency of calibration for Vernier Calipers and all other instruments. We are happy to provide guidance in this regard with over 30 years experience behind us.
