Our Physical Dimensional Laboratory not only uses the most advanced state-of-the-art equipment but is also environmentally controlled (both temperature and humidity are closely monitored 68°F with relative humidity not to exceed 40%) to give the lowest degree of measurement uncertainty.

Preparation of your precision measurement test equipment is just as important as the calibration. Preparation varies and is equipment specific. Any test instrumentation is thoroughly cleaned and inspected and allowed typically 24 to 72 hours to stabilize the temperature of the gage. This is done to obtain the most accurate measurement. When the gages are calibrated they are inspected for nicks, burrs, corrosion, and any other damage that may hamper accuracy and repeatability. Once calibrated, they are certified (with data) and either coated in dip-seal or oiled and packaged ready to be shipped to the customer.

Should your precision measurement test equipment be damaged or out of tolerance, we offer replacements. Please inquire with one of our service representatives for more information.

Micrometer Calibration & Repair

We provide calibration services for micrometers and other hand tools for measuring physical dimensions including height gauges, bore gauges, and calipers. If your spindle has lost a smooth rotation, you may have damage that requires repair. If you are finding accuracy errors in the readings given by your micrometer, we can calibrate the tool to bring it back up to standards.

Fast & Effective Services

At MQC, we offer all our customers a standard turnaround time of five business days, as well as expedited services of 24 hours, 48 hours, and 72 hours. We also offer free pick-up and delivery (regionally) for shipments of seven items or more. Although, some exceptions do apply, such as if your equipment is bulky, requires extra care, etc.

Our Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM)-trained technicians can fulfill all your service needs quickly and efficiently. In our multi-laboratory, environmentally-controlled facility, we use state-of-the-art technology to calibrate, repair, test, and perform first article inspections for your equipment. Additionally, each of our calibrations and repairs come with a certificate traceable to NIST. These certificates include information such as the date the calibration was performed, which technician performed it, a barcode for inventory tracking, and more.

You can trust MQC to provide you with the expert services you need and deserve. Give our accredited calibration company a call today to find out how we can help you fulfill your service needs.
