What is calibration?

In a calibration of a measurement standard, such as a weight or a gauge block, the quantity value represented by the standard is determined with a specified measurement uncertainty.

In a calibration of a measuring instrument, such as a weighing instrument or a caliper, the relationship between the indication value and the value of a measurement standard is determined with a specified uncertainty by measuring the quantity value represented by the measurement standard. The calibration results allows the user of the measuring instrument to judge if the errors of indication are within specified tolerances or to correct measurement results for these errors.

We calibrate your instruments against the measurement standards maintained at DFM. The equivalence between the calibrations performed by DFM and by other national metrology institutes is regularly tested by measurement comparisons organized within the EURAMET cooperation..
