Reliable Force Test Stands and Other Equipment

At Cross Precision Measurement, we make it our mission to always supply our customers and partners with accurate, high-quality force and materials testing equipment. We understand that if testing force or product materials is a necessary step in your production process, you need to be able to trust your tools. And when you have accurate equipment, you can trust your quality control, equipment accuracy, and production forecasting.

We know that no two manufacturing processes are the same. And no two laboratories require the exact same equipment. That’s why we work directly with all of our partners to ensure they’re getting the equipment they need for their unique process. Whether it’s force gauges, grips, or even custom solutions, Cross can provide you with traceable, precise materials and force testing equipment

Calibration for Force Test Stands

When a tool is used repeatedly or over a long period of time, eventually its accuracy will start to decrease. This is particularly true for force and materials testing equipment such as force test stands. And while your force testing equipment being a little bit off may not seem like a huge deal at the time, with repeated use and increasing drift, inaccurate equipment can pose a major problem for your operation. This can include declining quality assurance, dissatisfied end users, and even unexpected downtime or product recalls. These are all things we want to help you avoid.

In addition to products from industry-leading brands and well-known manufacturers, we also provide expert calibration services for force testing tools. That way, our customers can trust the accuracy of their force and materials testing equipment. If you get dimensional metrology equipment online from Cross, you can also get NIST traceable, ISO accredited calibration procedures to verify accuracy and assure quality.

Interested in calibration services? Our team can calibrate your force equipment straight from the manufacturer, so when you receive your product, you’ll be all set with readily available certification in GageSuite®.

Did you know... the precision measurement group at Cross was founded in 1939 by our current CEO's grandfather, Jim King. That's a whole lot of calibration!
Did you know... A fingerprint weighs about 50 micrograms. We know, we weighed it! The residue left from a finger can actually make a difference in weight results which is why we wear gloves when we calibrate weights. For reference, a sheet of paper is about 4.5 grams, that’s 4.5 million micrograms.
Did you know… Cross Company has grown significantly since our start in 1954. Over the years we've acquired 26 companies! Today, our five groups have expertise in everything from industrial automation to precision measurement, and industry knowledge going all the way back to 1939.
