Laboratory Testing, Inc.
2331 Topaz Dr.
Hatfield, PA, 19440

Press release date: May 1, 2014

HATFIELD, PA – Laboratory Testing Inc. (LTI) has expanded its scope of accreditation for calibration services through A2LA (American Association for Laboratory Accreditation). LTI first became A2LA accredited for calibration services in 2001, and has continued to add new capabilities throughout the years.

The recent additional approvals to the calibration certificate are as follows:

• Indicators from 2 in. to 6 in.

• ISO EN Specifications to Hardness Testing

• Range of Balances & Scales expanded to 2.5Kg

• Field calibration for Balances & Scales and Force

• Indirect Verification of Leeb Hardness – field calibration

Hardness tester calibration verifies that the equipment is operating within the manufacturer's stated tolerances for the grade or model. Laboratory Testing Inc., through its division LTI Metrology, determines the accuracy of the instrument, makes the necessary adjustments to bring it back within the manufacturers' tolerances and certifies it back to the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). The field technicians can service digital load cell and analog manual testers, and most hardness and microhardness models including Brinell, Rockwell, Knoop, Vickers, Leeb and Durometer.

Balance and scale calibration service confirms that this equipment is reporting accurate measures and weights when in use. In some cases, the technician can make adjustments to correct the accuracy of the scale or balance. Service can be provided in the lab at LTI or in the field for most models of digital and mechanical scales and balances.

Calibration of force equipment is essential for consistent performance delivery. LTI Metrology has the capability to execute force calibration from 0 to over 100,000 LBF.

All calibration results are detailed by Laboratory Testing Inc. in a Calibration Certificate, which also lists As Found and As Left conditions, NIST-traceability and A2LA accreditation. Materials testing and dimensional inspection services are also covered by the laboratory's A2LA accreditation certificates.
