Calibration Services

Our DAkkS (successor of DKD) accredited calibration laboratory D-K-15183-01-00 is accredited for the measurands acceleration and sound pressure level as well as for measurement amplifiers according to the international standard DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025.

Using our own CS18 Calibration system, our calibration laboratory is capable of performing calibration with minimum measurement uncertainty for almost any possible application.

On-site calibration

We do also offer on-site calibration services at the customer's location of e. g.:

  • Vibration test systems
  • Sensor adjustment systems
  • Production test stands
  • Special applications

Details can be found here.

Why a DAkkS (DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025) calibration?
  • High reliability of calibration results
  • Continuously monitored quality management by external auditors
  • International recognition of the calibration results
  • Results can be traced back to national and international standards
  • Calibration in line with applicable regulations and standards

As a result of calibration, a DAkkS calibration certificate (calibration according to DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025) or factory calibration certificate, respectively, will be issued. Calibration certificates issued by an accredited laboratory are recognized internationally in the framework of ISO 9000.

How frequently should you have your equipment calibrated?

This depends largely on your special demands, but we suggest that you should have your quality-relevant measuring equipment calibrated every year.

Our service for you:

  • All-encompassing consultation free of charge
  • Calibration tailored to your needs
  • Cost-free reminder of pending re-calibration every year
Seminars at SPEKTRA

Our Basic Seminar provides a general overview of theoretical basics and practices in the calibration laboratory procedures and calibration arrangements.

Based on the SPEKTRA CS18 Calibration Systems the participants get to know and learn to apply all operation modes in the Advances Seminar. The main focus there is the effective implementation of your individual calibration tasks. Basic knowledge of calibration in vibration technology is recommended.

We look forward to welcoming you at our seminars (available in German language only). You may find content and dates here.
Sample Calibration Certificates

We would be happy to explain to you scope and details of our calibrations using sample certificates. These are available for various measuring devices.

Please contact us if you have individual test requests!
