Indicator Calibration

Dial and Digital Indicator Calibration Services

Dial and digital indicators are some of the most common types of precision measurement tools used in quality labs for dimensional measurement and reference. Often, they are used in combination with other fixtures due to their accuracy and versatility. However, with complex internal mechanisms, it’s important to have indicators calibrated frequently to ensure accuracy.

Incorrectly calibrated equipment or instrumentation that’s out of calibration can lead to many problems down the road. From incorrect readings to quality control issues, many issues can arise if calibrations are not timely and reliable.

At Cross Precision Measurement, we’ve been performing high-quality, reliable calibration services for decades. With our expert on-site technicians to our calibration labs throughout the country, we have the means and ability to offer not just dial indicator calibration services, but calibration services for any industrial or commercial machinery you’re using. Don’t risk machine accuracy slipping. Work with a calibration expert today.

Calibration and Indicator Accuracy

The precision measurement group at Cross offers ISO 17025 accredited calibration for all types of digital and dial indicators, so you can be sure your quality laboratory or production line is performing accurate checks during your process.

Using NIST traceable standards such as gage blocks and universal measuring machines in our quality laboratories, our calibration procedures include both visual and physical inspection of equipment, with functionality checks and dimensional tolerance checks at multiple test points.

After our initial inspections, we’re able to recommend calibration services, a consistent calibration schedule, and provide the tools to maintain standard calibration levels. Cross Precision Measurement is a full-service calibration company, meaning we’re able to diagnose any potential problems, perform any necessary calibrations, and advise ways to maintain standard calibration levels.

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 Indicator Calibration Company

When it comes to dial indicators, an important consideration is wear and regular use. While, in general, dial indicators are less prone to drift, they are able to become worn down and less able to perform to dial indicator calibration standards. As they are used, the repeatability and smooth operation of the gears become worn. Accuracy suffers as a result.

While these indicators may be less prone to drift, that doesn’t mean they don’t require regular maintenance in the form of calibration. Using a piece of equipment year after year without checking to ensure optimal performance is a recipe for machine failure, quality assurance problems, and many other issues. That’s why we always recommend working with proven experts in machine calibration.

At Cross Precision Measurement, we want to be your indicator calibration company. But that’s not all we want to be. Our expert technicians and full calibration labs allow us to perform an enormous range of precision measurement or metrological analyses. From calibration to inspection to testing, Cross is ready and willing to help maintain your equipment or instrumentation’s calibration integrity.
