Our calibration lab has several independent calibration rigs; loads can be applied through dead weight and hydraulics, up to 100,000 lb. We have integrated data acquisition systems and computerized calibration matrix reduction. The rigs can apply single component or combinations of 3 forces and 3 moments to the balance. The balance is only as good as its calibration. Experience has led to the development of a calibration methodology that fully characterizes the balance.
Calibration hardware can be provided for end users to maintain the accuracy of delivered balance systems. The hardware provides the ability apply load combinations to fully characterize the balance. Calibrations are tailored to cover the complete test environment and include single and multi-component loads on the balance. Calibration equipment is fabricated to exacting tolerances.
