Calibration Services

Solve metrology has been helping manufacturers meet their quality requirements for more than a decade. We specialize in the calibration of precision measurement equipment such as roundness gages and surface finish/contour gages. All equipment is tested with our certified calibration artifacts and procedures and compared to your calibration masters and procedures. This not only verifies proper calibration of the equipment but also verifies proper calibration and function of your masters and procedures.

Areas of Expertise

Calibration and Resurfacing of Granite Surface Plates

Two precision instruments are used in conjunction with one another to determine the accuracy of a given surface plate.

The Repeat-O-Meter is the instrument that is used to check the repeatability, or small wear spots that occur from normal everyday use. These small wear spots are often the result of the constant sliding of your parts and/or measuring gages along the surface of your granite plate.

The Electronic Levels are the instruments used to check the overall flatness flatness of a surface plate. Electron levels read in arc seconds and provide the data points to form the printed out topography of the surface. From this information the overall flatness is calculated.

Using these instruments the technicians at Solve Metrology are able to determine the “Grade” of a given surface plate. If your surface plate has fallen out of tolerance we can then recondition it with our lapping procedure to bring it into the required specification.

According to Federal Specifications GGG-P-463c, each surface plate must pass both the repeatability and overall flatness test in order to be legally certified. The allowed tolerance of a surface plate is defined by its size and grade.

Optical & Digital Video Comparators

Many of the systems we service are used in factory environments. Our maintenance program includes cleaning of all accessible optical surfaces and reconditioning of mechanical assemblies, alignment of tables, adjustment to magnifications and linear correction. This cleaning and servicing can make a barely usable optical system function like new again. We are accredited to ISO/IEC 17025:2017 and ANSI/NCSL Z540-1 for calibration. We go several steps beyond the verification process with service to correct your instruments to the highest level of accuracies. Once your system is restored to like new condition and the measurement features are calibrated and certified, we can then help customers with measurement risk analysis per your requirements.

    Customized Service Plans

    At Solve Metrology, we know that instruments being dropped, hit, run over, etc will fall out of calibration sooner resulting in less accurate measurements.

    Solve Metrology comes to a client’s facility and observes tools usage and placement. We then help develop a plan based on your staffing and building layout to maximize the lifespan of tools. We can develop a plan for how frequent you equipment needs calibration and maintenance for you to stay compliant and pass your audits.
