Calibration

Newage field service technicians provide accurate, affordable and timely calibrations on virtually any manufacturer’s hardness testing instrumentation.

We can provide certified field calibrations on Newage Testing Instruments products as well as some competitive brands.



Accredited Calibration

Newage Testing Instruments is accredited in accordance with recognized International Standard ISO/IEC 17025:2005 General Requirements for the Competence of Testing and Calibration Laboratories.

This laboratory also meets the requirements of ANSI/NCSL Z540-1-1994 and any additional program requirements in the field of calibration. This accreditation demonstrates technical competence for a defined scope and the operation of a laboratory quality management system (refer to joint ISO-ILAC-IAF Communiqué dated 8 January 2009).

Newage Testing Instruments offers calibration and verification services for all of your hardness testing instrumentation per industry standards such as ASTM E18 and ISO 6508-2. Our field service technicians are factory-trained and accredited to provide you with accurate and economical calibration support. All calibrations include verification with “As Found As Left” documentation. 

Unlike other service providers, we can also provide repair services for our systems and 3rd party systems. Other service providers may provide calibration services on 3rd party systems, but cannot provide repair services if they uncover a non-conformity during the calibration procedure.

Typical services provided with a calibration include: 

Rockwell Testers 

Verify Rockwell measuring system using standardized hardness blocks (Indirect Method) 
Assure that machine load is properly set and can be applied without shock or vibration 
Verify condition of the anvil 
Verify condition of steel ball or the diamond indenter 
Provide both Indirect and Direct Verification Methods 
Standards: ASTM E18, ISO 6508, ANSI/NCSL-Z540-1 

Brinell Testers 

Verify Brinell diameter measuring system using a standardized hardness block (Indirect Method) 
Assure that machine load is properly set and can be applied without shock or vibration
Verify condition of the anvil 
Verify condition of nominal diameter of the ball indenter 
Provide both Indirect and Direct verification methods 
Standards: ASTM E10, ISO 6506, ANSI/NCSL-Z540-1 

Micro-Hardness Testing Systems 

Verify Vickers and Knoop measuring system using standardized hardness blocks (Indirect Method) 
Assure that machine load is properly set and can be applied without shock or vibration 
Verify condition of the diamond indenter 
Provide both Indirect and Direct Verification Methods
Standards: ASTM E384, ISO 6507, ANSI/NCSL-Z540-1
