The collective is the
result of close co-operation between ICMET and the German National Metrology
It was put into operation in 1995 and it is to be used for measurement
range from 1 MN to 32 MN.
The 32 MN force calibration machine has direct traceability to the German
metrology standard, (PTB-Braunschweig).
The collective specialists have an experience of 10 years in the field
of high force measurement.
The testing area is air conditioned.
Thecollective performs tests and calibrations for the force measuring equipment
used in metallurgy, off-shore drilling and other industrial applications.
The collective provides technical facilities for a rapid manufacturing of the
various accesories that are necessary for the tests.
ICMET Craiova there is in operation beginning
with 2000 an 1000 KN force calibration
machine with lever amplification, transferred from PTB Berlin.
It enables the generation and measurement of 200 force steps of 5 KN
each in the range 5-1000 KN with a measurement uncertainty of 0,0005.
In the future the 1000 KN force machine will be included in the standard
list of Calibration Laboratory DKD-K-18701 by extending the force measuring
range under 1 MN.
for which DKD accreditation is granted:
and/or measuring equipment
of force transducers
MN to <0,5 MN
MN force calibration machine with a reference force transducer system
MN to <1 MN
MN to 16 MN
16 MN to 32 MN
