Metal and Plastics Industry

The quality of products produced with metal and plastics is partly determined by the correct shape and dimensions of the product. Measuring technology is therefore essential in the metal and plastics industry. Through calibration of measuring instruments, the quality of the product can be guaranteed.

Specific quality requirements often apply for the execution of the work, in particular in order to meet the requirements for the quality or safety of a particular product. Examples include the established AS 9100, IATF 16949, or ISO 9000 standards.

Kalibra can help you with the calibration of measuring equipment used in the product and processing of plastics or metal. In this way you can meet the requirements for quality assurance.

Calibration of Measuring Instruments for Metal and Plastics

Kalibra provides calibration of measuring instruments in the metal and plastics industry, including the calibration of:

  • Geometric measuring instruments: For measuring internal dimensions, external dimensions, and calibres
  • Pressure gauges (used in production processes)
  • Thermometers (used in production processes)
  • Torque wrenches

Kalibra can also assist you in this work with consultancy.

Working Method In the Metal and Plastics Industry

The work can be performed in a mobile Kalibra measuring chamber on location or in a stationary measuring chamber.

We work entirely in accordance with the internationally recognised ISO 17025 standard for quality assurance in calibration institutions. Several activities can be combined in succession, so that the number of suppliers remains limited for the various activities.

Kalibra is not a supplier of equipment. This guarantees the objectivity of measurements and services.

Kalibra specialises in calibrations and validations. In addition, we also perform (metrological) inspections. Our services at a glance:


Calibration is the comparison of a measured value using a measuring system with an actually measured value with a standard to determine the deviation.


Validation of critical facilities, spaces, instruments, and equipment provides insight into whether requirements are met, and therefore whether an object is suitable for the intended goal.


Metrological inspection involves testing whether a measuring instrument complies with metrological legislation. Kalibra is a formal inspection body. We carry out inspections as an independent institution. A metrological inspection guarantees objectivity and expertise.

Calibration of Measuring Instruments

Kalibra is an expert in the field of different types of calibrations. We can calibrate both individual measuring equipment as well as permanently installed measuring equipment in the production process.


Trained and experienced Kalibra employees are available on call for a either a short or longer period. Even a couple of days a year is possible.


When it comes to calibrations and validations, our consultancy services can always provide you with advice and guidance. After all, before any inspections are performed, it is important that the starting points and test criteria are well defined.

Gas detection

Kalibra is an authorized sales and service point of mercury vapor meters from Arizona Instruments (AZI). You can also contact us for the rental and purchase of mercury vapor meters.

Maintenance and Management

It should go without saying that your systems should work exactly as intended. Your employees must be able to safely operate their equipment.
