A complete service

Whether you are checking the quality of goods or materials as they come off the production line, or carrying out testing further along the supply chain, having properly calibrated equipment is vital to ensure accurate results.

In addition to our laboratory accreditation programme, we also calibrate laboratory equipment and test machines worldwide in laboratories serving the footwear, leather, furniture, rubber, textile, automotive and apparel industries.

Frequently asked questions

Where can you carry out calibration?

Equipment can either be sent to SATRA UK for calibration, or we can carry out an on-site visit.

When will I receive my calibration certificates?

Electronic certificates will be sent within 4 weeks of the calibration taking place.

Does the calibration include repairs and/or adjustments?

No – the service is for calibration only. Any repairs or adjustments required would need to be carried out by the manufacturer.

Is it more cost-effective to have multiple machines calibrated at the same time?

Yes, all our customers are charged a daily rate so it is cost-effective to request calibration of more than one machine at a time.
