Force Gauge Calibration in accordance with BS EN ISO376:2011

AMECaL makes use of a number of pieces of test equipment allowing us to perform a wide ranging Force Gauge Calibration Service. We have the ability through our highly accurate Dead Weight Tester and Load Cell to perform Dynamometer Calibration, Load Cell Calibration, Push/Pull Gauge Calibration and Cable Tension Gauge Calibration. Force measuring equipment such as those listed is used in research laboratories, manufacturing and production environments, out onsite in the field and in hospitals. The use in hospitals is particularly interesting with a Hand Held Force Gauge or Hand Grip Dynamometer used to test the strength of patients grip after a hand injury or operation.


Regular calibration of Force Gauges will ensure that your gauges continue to provide readings within manufacturer specific tolerance. The sheer nature of these gauges means they are exposed to considerable forces during testing so measurements can drift over the course of time. AMECaL test Force Gauges in accordance with National Standards and all calibrations come with a traceable certificate (with before & after results as necessary) and label along with a standard complimentary clean.


We have the capability in house to calibrate Force Gauges with measurement standards in excess of 1000 Newtons. Force, weight and torque calibration are closely linked in metrology so our expertise in all three disciplines helps to make this one of our most comprehensive of services. The following list indicates some of the brands of gauges that have been seen by AMECaL over the years:


Camry, Chatillon, Extech, Halda, Imada, Jamar, Kern, Mecmesin, RS Components, Sauter, Shimpo, Takei, Wagner Instruments,
