Optical Calibration

AMECaL is one of the country’s foremost laboratories in the specialised field of optical measurement.


AMECaL has spent many years researching and developing a method of calibration relating to optical gloss measurement. This now allows both instruments and reference standards to be calibrated against measurement standards traceable to international/national measurement standards.


AMECaL also manufactures Reference Standards, to high client specifications, distributing them to an international client base.


The innovation of new calibration methods in this highly specialized field is not the only cutting edge development to the company’s name; AMECaL also excels in complex - and related - areas such as the conductivity of metal structure and paint- and flow-related instruments. Our expertise extends to developing new equipment as well; currently in development is a Gonio photometer – which will have some of the best accuracies in the world – some 20 times more accurate than the best available today.


Ongoing technical developments in unique and very specialist areas like these, alongside an ability to deal with an ever-increasing portfolio of products, have put the company at the forefront of calibration know-how.
