Field Services: Applied Technical Services has a wide range of capabilities to perform onsite calibration services on your measuring tools and testing equipment. Traveling to your facility and servicing your equipment not only reduces the amount of downtime required to perform the calibrations but also allows us to calibrate large items such as Compression and Tensile Test Machines, Hardness Testers, Surface Plates, Optical Comparators and Environmental Chambers that are too large to be sent to a laboratory for calibration. We specialize in the Automotive, Aerospace, Medical Equipment and General Manufacturing Industries, to name a few.
Mechanical Lab: Servicing tools such as pressure and vacuum gauges, cable tensiometers, and torque wrenches, our Mechanical Calibrations team can verify the accuracy of your pressure and torque equipment. Some of the regularly calibrated equipment include, Outside, Inside, Depth and Bore Micrometers; Calipers; Height Gages; Dial, Digital and Test Indicators; Length Scales, Pi-Tapes, Rulers and Tape Measures; Footage Counters; Protractors; Force Gages; Accelerometers; Manometers; Surface Finish Testers; Weight Scales; Platform Scales; Triple Beam Scales and Analytical Balances.
On-Site CMM Services: Applied Technical Services offers fully comprehensive On-Site CMM Services for any of your Coordinate Measurement Machine needs. Our Dimensional Inspectors have the capability to conduct a wide range of CMM services such as First Article Inspections, PPAP Reports, Process Capability Studies / CpK Studies, Inspection Gage and Fixture Calibration Certificates and Reverse Engineering projects. We also offer training of essential CMM principles such as PC-DMIS Training, GD&T and Cartesian Dimension Callouts, Probe Set-ups, Proper Control of a Part with Alignments, Understanding of the 6 Degrees of Freedom, How to Level, Rotate, and Origin a Part with Datum Features, Measurement Plans, Caliper and Gauge Equipment, Multiple Method Based Verification of Data, Custom Reporting of Dimensional Data, Safely powering the Controller and Computer, and Maintenance and A2LA Guidance. Our team performs most Dimensional Inspections in accordance to ASME Y14.5M – 2009.
Standards Lab: ATS’ Standards Lab is environmentally-controlled for high precision measurement capabilities. The lab is controlled to 68°F within a span of +/-1.0°F and humidity controlled at 30-55% R.H. The lab also has isolation joints in the flooring to reduce any vibration effects. All gages are cleaned prior to testing and are placed in the Standards Lab to achieve temperature stabilization for a minimum of 24 hours. ATS has the capability to perform calibration on a wide range of Setting Standards and Working Gages with the ability to calibrate classes XXX, XX, X, Y, Z, and ZZ toolmakers tolerances as well as customer’s tolerances. Internal measurements are limited to 12 inches and external measurements to 13 inches.
Thermal Lab: ATS provides complete calibration services for all your thermometry needs. From ITS-90 Fixed point cells to bench top thermometer displays, to hand-held devices, we can offer the best calibration solution for the strictest requirements. ATS offers world class temperature probe calibrations employing state-of-the-art equipment and methodologies including temperature baths, ice point references, block calibrators, and standard and high accuracy thermometers.
