Calibration ensures consistent quality of measurement results

Sensor calibration is a sound investment in the future. Calibration is indispensable to ensuring consistent quality of your measurement results. Moreover, whether HBM or non-HBM manufactured, calibrating your sensors is an integral part of ISO 9001 certification.

Calibration accurately determines the correlation between the input and the measured output of whatever quality an instrument is measuring under specified conditions.  This in turn determines the accuracy of the instrument and results can be quickly and easily documented, complying with ISO 9001 standards – the ultimate global benchmark for quality management – since it ensures that the equipment is working within its correct specifications. 

There are different types of calibrations available. In most cases you can opt for a basic working standard calibration or calibration against a higher-level standard such as calibration in line with ISO 376 and DAkkS-DKD-R 3-3 for force transducers or calibration per DIN 51309 or VDI/VDE 2646 for torque transducers. A similar hierarchy of calibration standards is available for other sensor types too. 

Which type of calibration to choose mainly depends on your requirements’.  Our skilled engineers can manufacture bespoke adapters to enable calibration for non-HBM sensors and transducers.

The choice of calibration facility also needs to be well considered. HBM’s calibration laboratory has been outstanding for its formidable equipment and performance since 1977 and provides:

  • Enormously wide calibration ranges for force transducers (2.5 N to 5 MN) and torque (from 0.2 N·m to 400 kN·m) as well as many other calibration services available for pressure and mV/V voltage ratio.
  • Calibration of complete measuring chains (also of third-party products) – at no additional cost.
  • Decades of experience (since 1977) in the calibration of force transducers, force sensors and force measurement chains.
  • From the cost-effective calibration of industrial sensors to the transfer standard that meets the highest demands. 

More information as well as sample calibration certificates and examples of HBM calibration machines can be found on our calibration services pages
