Granite Surface Plate Calibration
Surface Plate Calibration Services
There’s more to your surface plate than meets the eye. While granite is very hard and not greatly affected by temperature fluctuations – making it an ideal material for a reference surface – with continued use, a granite surface plate will wear over time.
Airborne abrasive dust and repeated sliding of gages or parts along the plate can create wear spots that are invisible to the naked eye. These spots affect the flatness and/or the repeatability of the plate and therefore the accuracy of the measurements that you make on it.
Granite surface plate calibration is important in ensuring accurate measurements and quality standards. That’s why, when you need surface plate calibration services, we recommend working with a professional surface plate calibration company. One who knows the ins and outs of the industrial world. A company like Cross.
Calibration and Surface Plate Accuracy
The precision measurement group at Cross offers ISO 17025 accredited surface plate calibration for surface plates up to 60 inches in diagonal length. Our accredited granite surface plate calibration covers grades AA, A and B for repeatability at 0.002 inches and flatness up to 60 inches in diagonal length. We also offer granite surface plate resurfacing if needed, with a relap to bring surface plate back into specification.
At Cross, our goal is to provide all of our clients with the highest quality calibration and metrology services possible. When you work with us, you can rest assured that your calibrations will be traceable, accurate, and performed with minimally invasive calibration procedures. We want you to be able to get back to work knowing your equipment or instrumentation is operating the way you need it to.
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 Calibration Company
Calibration for surface plate flatness, thermal gradients, and repeatability are some of the main tests needed to ensure accurate surface plate calibration. These tests can all be performed using various means, but what it comes down to is often individual use-cases. At Cross Precision Measurement, we take the time to learn about your business, needs, and ops in order to determine the right calibration procedure for all of your machinery, equipment, or instrumentation.
At Cross, we want to be your granite surface plate 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.
