Calibration of 8 steel gauge blocks by mechanical comparison

Project Description

At the meeting of EUROMET Contact Persons in 1999, it was agreed to undertake a comparison of gauge blocks by mechanical comparison. The gauge blocks selected are of steel material and have nominal values 0.5mm, 1mm, 2mm, 10mm, 25mm, 50mm, 75mm and 100mm.

A single point or 5 point calibration will be undertaken on each gauge block by the measurement procedure being currently used at the project participant’s laboratory, taking into account ISO3650.

The deviation from the nominal length of each gauge block will be deduced and the associated uncertainty of calibration evaluated (k = 2).
