Dimensional measurements

The capabilities and expertise to deliver confidence in the conformance of even the most complex components

Without highly accurate dimensional measurement we cannot have confidence in the interchangeability of parts and components. This can impact safety and profitability, as well as harming global trade. Our high accuracy dimensional measurements help organisations independently evidence conformance to demanding requirements. We provide consultancy support to manufacturers, enabling them to identify inspection strategies to improve product quality and drive process improvements.

Our calibrations to national and international standards clearly demonstrate the accuracy and repeatability of measurement equipment for our clients. We can provide your people with the skills on the state-of-the-art measurement, inspection, analysis techniques they need to improve your in-house capability, including on-the-job inspection training. Customers in sectors such as defence, aerospace, automotive, space and medical work with us to gain the confidence they need in evaluating high-precision parts and structures. As the UK's National Measurement Institute, you can be sure that everything we deliver will be trustworthy and impartial.
