What is Metrology?
Metrology is simply the science of weights and measurements with a determination of conformance to specific technical requirements, and the development of standards.
One of its core concepts, traceability, is a measurement result that can be referenced through an unbroken and documented chain of calibrations, each of which contributes to the level of measurement uncertainty. It also means there is documented relation between the indication of the measuring instrument and the calibration standard, which is coordinated by a national metrological institute, such as the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).
Why is Metrology important?
There are inherent risks when the measurement parameters of an instrument are inaccurate, and even the most advanced digital instruments are susceptible to drifting over time. Calibrating your equipment is about increasing the confidence in the data you are able to obtain. Though, there are many factors that contribute to the integrity of a measurement, such as environmental and atmospheric conditions. Our team understands how to account for these variables.
Having expertise in virtually all disciplines further ensures the quality of our measurements. Our team of experts have hundreds of years of experience in metrology with most having received prior training by the U.S. Military in the Precision Measurement Equipment Laboratory (PMEL) and have dedicated many years of their careers to strengthening their own aptitude.
