Balance Calibration Laboratory

The Balance Calibration Laboratory provides highly accurate calibrations for a wide range of force measurement systems from one dimensional load cells to multi-axis bespoke systems like those used in wind tunnel tests for aerospace applications.

Calibrated weights are used to apply independent loads in vertical and horizontal directions, and the force measurement device or balance is kept level in pitch and roll with our motorised support system, monitored by an orthogonal pair of highly accurate spirit levels.

When distributed across a loading frame, a maximum load of 20kN can be applied.

All our calibrations are traceable to national standards and are delivered to the same service standards as those provided to our global aerospace clients.

ARA also has an on-site advanced manufacture facility available for the design and manufacture of bespoke adaptors, or any other component required for your calibration.
