Gage Block Calibration

Gage Block Calibration Services

Gage blocks are often at the heart of any quality assurance laboratory’s dimensional measurement operation. Having a good quality gage block reference set can mean the difference in building a high quality product, and experiencing a catastrophic failure at an end user level. Because of this importance, it is heavily recommended to have gage blocks calibrated by capable professionals at frequencies relevant to their usage.

Cross Company is one of few companies with the optimum environmental laboratory conditions required to accurately measure gage blocks. Environmental conditions can affect readings of gage blocks susceptible to thermal expansion, which is why the precision measurement group at Cross uses environmental systems capable of holding constant temperatures within ± 1 °F of required levels in certain areas.

Cross Precision Measurement is uniquely suited to solve all of your calibration needs. With our traceable gage block calibration equipment, we’re able to precisely calibrate any instrumentation or equipment within your facility to a traceable standard. We’ll even keep track of your gage block calibration frequency. That way you know exactly when to expect future services.

Calibration and Gage Accuracy

Optimum environmental conditions, paired with investments into the latest state-of-the-art technology at many of our ISO 17025 accredited calibration laboratories, ensure we supply our customers with the most accurate readings.

After being a respected calibration company for this long, we understand the importance of precise calibration and accurate measurements. Incorrectly calibrated machinery can lead to unplanned downtime, revenue loss, or even injuries. That’s why we’ve refined our gage block calibration procedure to get you the calibration services you need without all the headache.

Our technicians are experienced and capable of obtaining readings from both English and Metric gage block sets at any accuracy level from shop grade all the way up to grade 00. Learn more about our gage block calibration procedure.

Reliable Calibration Services

The precision measurement group at Cross offers NIST traceable calibration for all types of mechanical and electrical measurement devices, from calipers to inclinometers. Our technicians utilize master standards such as surface plates, angle blocks, and sine bars, among others, to perform a comprehensive calibration including readings at a minimum of four test points.

In addition, our team can provide as found, as left readings on a certificate of calibration which your quality team can access 24/7 using GageSuite®, our online calibration certificate tracking system.

When it comes to calibration services for manufacturers and others within the industrial world, the two most important considerations are accuracy and consistency. At Cross Precision Measurement, we strive to provide the highest degree of accuracy in calibrations every single time. That way, you can trust that your instrumentation or equipment has been precisely calibrated time and time again.

Your Gage Block Calibration Company

In order for a gage block to work as intended, it needs to be as flat and smooth as possible. With their flat and parallel surfaces, gage blocks are typically accurate to a few millionths of an inch. When you’re dealing with measurements that small, it becomes absolutely necessary that they are calibrated correctly. Being off by a small degree can throw a result off significantly.

When calibrated properly, gage blocks can be brought together and the surfaces will adhere to each other without causing damage. They can then be broken apart and continuously reused (assuming they’re still accurately calibrated).

If you’re still wondering about gage block calibration frequency, gage block calibration equipment, or gage block calibration procedure, we can help. Contact one of our precision measurement experts to begin the process today.

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