Precision Measurement Technical Bulletins and Guides

Study: Coefficients of Thermal Expansion Thermal Expansion in dimensional calibration is a significant factor to the values we report on traceable certificates. Thermal expansion is dependent on the composition of the material we measure and the standards we use for comparison. In addition, the time allowed for the device under…

Beyond giving you instant access to the complete calibration and repair history for each piece of equipment, GageSuite now gives you drift charts for each piece of equipment. GageSuite uses real data from…

Measurement of small radius and radius with short arc length or included angle present a challenge to metrologist regardless of the device used to gather data points. The following data illustrates the effects of form error and/or measurement error and reduction of arc length. 1. Points A1 (X0,Y0.5), B1 (X0.01913,Y0.04619) and…

Below are methods used to calibrate gage blocks within all J.A. King network locations offering gage block calibration services. Primary Method Per national standards, the length of the gauge block is defined as the distance between a flat surface wrung to one end of the block, and a gauging point…

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 to paper is about 4.5 grams, that’s 4.5 million micrograms.
Did you know… Cross Company is an ESOP (Employee Stock Ownership Plan). Our ESOP started in 1979 and as of 2006, we are a 100% employee owned! Learn more about our ESOP and how that benefits both team members and our customers.
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.
