Confidence through traceability
The National Physical Laboratory (NPL) develops highly-accurate metrology instruments, sensors and artefacts. The majority of industrial processes and instruments rely on measurement.
NPL works with customers who demand absolute confidence in their measurements and sensing applications. In support of such technology and industries, NPL has developed and applied instruments, standards and methodologies to provide traceable measurements across a broad range of disciplines. The range of instruments we can provide extends from bespoke systems designed to meet specific measurement requirements to standard artefacts and complete metrology systems based on those operated at NPL.
Design bespoke products
Bespoke instruments are designed by CAD conversant designers and mechatronic experts who validate engineered designs using finite element analysis (FEA) and modal analysis.
Develop highly accurate instruments
Complete manufacturing capabilities to develop instruments made in the UK. Seamless communication between our instrument designers, precision engineers and system integrators is guaranteed.
Delivered in world-leading National Measurement Institute facilities
Home to 388 laboratories with temperature-controlled facilities, clean rooms and an engineering workshop.
