Faster and More Efficient CMM Calibration Solution

    Keeping your CMM machine calibrated regularly will ensure that the measurement data that you create is accurate. The definitive procedure for calibration of CMMs which is used by all CMM manufacturers is the ISO 10360 series. Most CMM machine calibration will be accomplished with the use of an artifact, but for more demanding calibration, a laser interferometer can be employed. Ultimately CMM machine calibration comes down to one thing: precision.     A CMM measuring machine can have ...

           An AC induction motor is constructed with a rotor that has windings which intersect the rotating magnetic field generated by the stator windings.      At full load speed, the rotor turns slightly slower than the synchronous speed of the motor. This is because the magnetic field causes currents to flow in the rotor windings and produces a torque which turns the rotor; so if the rotor turns at the same speed as the magnetic field, there would be no relat...

Chart Recorders and General Tech services

    Chart recorders have long been used at manufacturing plants to keep records of process factors such as pressure, flow, humidity and temperature. In laboratories, chart recorders have been used to keep graphic records of scientific data compiled through testing and diagnostics. Today, as the technology competes with data loggers, traditional chart recorders are still the preferred option for uses in remote, powerless settings and within working arsenals that lack complex computing systems.  ...

How Portable Appliance Testing saves lives and money?

    WHAT IS PAT(Portable Appliance Testing) TESTING?     Any electrical equipment that is in an installation that is portable (whether permanently connected or not by plug and to a socket outlet) should be inspected and tested to be in accordance with the regulations set by governing bodies. But what exactly deems a piece of electrical equipment as ‘portable?’     In the IET code of practice, they define a portable appliance as: “An appliance of not mo...

In the world of measurement technology, calibration is the documented comparison of the measurement device to be calibrated against a traceable reference device. The reference standard may be also referred to as a “calibrator.” Logically, the reference is more accurate than the device to be calibrated. The reference device should be also calibrated traceably. Calibration of your measuring instruments has two objectives It checks the accuracy of the instrument it determines the traceability of...
