Surface Plate Calibration & Resurfacing Services

Simply the normal process of moving parts on and off of your surface plates coupled with airborne dust and abrasives can cause enough wear on the granite surface plate material to cause errors in your measurements.  Timely calibration is essential for ensuring they retain their flatness and precision. Precision Solutions, Inc., offers expert surface plate calibration services to companies in Pennsylvania and New Jersey that will maintain plate measurements within acceptable guidelines and prolong their lifespan. You’ll have complete confidence in the accuracy and precision of your plates.

Why Do I Need Granite Plate Calibration?

It is almost inevitable that you will find variations between your calibrations over time. Surface plate calibration variations can occur for any number of reasons, including direct sunlight, temperature changes, improperly used inspection equipment, wear, improper plate support, and washing the plate with a hot or cold solution and failing to allow it to normalize before calibrating.

For this reason, it is crucial that you consistently submit your surface plate measuring devices to regular calibration by surface plate calibration experts, such as the ones you will find at Precision Solutions Inc.

What if I Am Not Using Granite for My Surface Plates?

At Precision Solutions Inc., we strongly recommend you use granite rather than another substance like cast iron, ceramic or steel. The reason for this is other substances may be subject to rust, corrosion, warping or other deformations over time that can affect the accuracy of the device and require recalibration and resurfacing. Granite also lasts longer and is smoother, more precise, more resistant to magnetism and temperature changes, and is easier to care for.

We Specialize in Granite Surface Plate Calibration and Lapping

Precision Solutions, Inc., located in Quakertown, PA, offers granite surface plate lapping service designed to bring plate measurements within grade guidelines. We provide an effective calibration/lapping inspection process that includes cleaning and polishing the surface, checking for excessive wear, and measuring to determine overall flatness and localized variation.  We test for localized variation by taking many readings over the entire surface looking for the maximum high and low deviations.

The measurements will indicate the level of deviation, if any, from the standard for the specific plate grade. If the readings indicate any low areas, we’ll resurface the plate to restore the acceptable level of flatness.

At Precision Solutions, Inc., we understand lapping surface plates. Our capable staff has a fully equipped service vehicle that includes everything needed to perform a fast, efficient on-site calibration that will meet your quality requirements, regardless of surface grade.

Upon completion of your surface plate calibration service, you’ll receive a Calibration Certificate listing the grade and any work performed to restore flatness. Your certificate will also detail the “as found” and “as left” conditions.

In addition, we offer reliable managed calibration services to ensure you never miss a scheduled calibration.
