f1f2Force Laboratory provides calibration and traceability of force transducers measurement in accordance to the BS EN ISO 376 and ASTM E74. Dead-weight force standard machine in the laboratory is maintained as force reference standard with capacity of 60 kN and two universal compression machines with capacity of 600 kN and 2000 kN. Several force transducers Class 00 with ranges of 50 kN, 100 kN, 250 kN, 600 kN, 1000 kN and 2000 kN are also available for calibration services. Table below illustrates the capabilities and uncertainties obtained in force measurement at force laboratory:
