Surface Plate Surfacing or Calibration Services
If your surface plates are worn, chipped or otherwise damaged, how can you expect to achieve accurate or precise measurements? The simple answer is that, you can't.
Over time your surface plates will develop worn spots rendering them uneven and providing you with inaccurate measurement readings. Your surface plates may also become damaged due to dropping tools or other materials on them that create chips or other wear spots. Surface plates will also encounter wear due to airborne particles and dust that will create an abrasive situation. If you continually use the same spot on a surface plate, wear will definitely take place and your surface plate will become uneven. We advise that your surface plates be resurfaced on a regular basis to insure that you are getting the right measurements from your precision measuring equipment such as your coordinate measuring machine.
