As a global provider of calibration services Instron has laboratories in the USA, Europe, and Brazil. All calibrations are traceable to the International System of Units (SI) through a local National Metrological Institute (NMI).

Compliance to Global Standards

Our services are designed to ensure that your testing systems meet or exceed relevant standards. Our calibration specialists are trained and supported by the necessary calibration tools and standards to verify and calibrate all Instron materials testing systems, including SATEC™ Series high-capacity equipment, Wilson® Hardness, Rockwell® testers, CEAST rheology equipment and Dynatup® tup calibrations. In addition to the Instron family of products, Instron can verify other brands of testing equipment used in your facility. Our global presence, range of capabilities, experience, and low-measurement uncertainties make us a global calibration leader for materials testing solutions.

Maintaining Data Accuracy, Integrity, and Traceability

Our calibration laboratories are ISO/IEC 17025 accredited laboratories that have demonstrated competence, impartiality, and the performance capability required to provide a high level of confidence in the results from your materials testing system. Calibrations are conducted using our CalproCR Software that performs data acquisition, uncertainty analysis, and checks against ISO and ASTM requirements. This Instron proprietary calibration information central repository solution also enables us to provide you with digitally encrypted access to your calibrations certificates via the internet. Our online calibration certificate repository delivers the benefits and flexibility of electronic files with confidence in the integrity of the data within your certificates.
