Balance Calibration Laboratory

The Modane Test Centre has a dedicated building for the balance calibration with two large calibration test benches, B1 and B3.

To have more detail on our balance design, manufacturing and equipment capabilities, see "Balance design capability" section.

B1 CALIBRATION BENCH

Balance calibration bench B1

 

Individual load components or combinations of six components can be calibrated.

Main characteristics:

  • Capacity 150 kN.
  • Accuracy 1.10-4.

This bench is for large force balances, sting balances (more than 50 mm diameter) and wall mounted balances.

B3 CALIBRATION BENCH

Balance calibration bench B3

Individual or combinations of six components can be calibrated.

Main characteristics:

  • Capacity 10 kN.
  • Accuracy 1.10-4.
