Master Tools Analysis & Calibration

Master Tool Analysis

Comprehensive reports and analyses are provided for master tools and templates such as those used in the aircraft industry, for tracing and duplicating machines, matrix tools for compressor and turbine wheels, and complex optical lenses.

Master tools can be measured either in our laboratory or on-site. For adjustable master tools, adjustments can be made based on the initial measurement and re-measured until within acceptable limits. Master tools that cannot be adjusted can be measured for initial compliance (such as when first made) or checked for wear periodically as the tools are used.

Detailed calibration reports include profile analysis (as required), actual versus nominal readings, and before and after readings in the case where adjustment is possible and needed. Reports include a Certificate of Conformance and are NIST traceable.

Q-PLUS Labs’ Nano Measurement Arsenal Expands with New Laser Confocal System

January 2017: Q-PLUS Labs expands its extensive nano measurement capabilities with the introduction of a new laser confocal microscope for non-contact measurement. Using supremely high accuracy laser scanning, this system is extremely versatile and able to perform color profilometry as well as precise measurements down to .5 nanometers (500 picometers)! The system's speed of data acquisition has an incredibly fast response time and can characterize surfaces for accurate measurement results with high-resolution and low noise on a variety of objects, even almost to the "equator" on difficult to measure spherical shapes!
