Lloyd Instruments celebrates 20 years of UKAS calibrations

Lloyd Instruments is celebrating its 20th anniversary as a nationally recognised UKAS (United Kingdom Accreditation Service) calibration laboratory (Accreditation No 0251), offering customers UKAS-approved verification and calibration of force measuring systems in tension and compression. During these 20 years, over 25,000 UKAS-accredited calibration certificates (or their equivalent) have been issued to UK customers alone. The laboratory currently boasts four certified engineers for the UK, one for Germany and three providing UKAS calibrations internationally. Lloyd Instruments Calibration Laboratory is also accredited to ISO 17025:2005.

In addition, Ametek SAS, the sister company of Lloyd Instruments in France, celebrates 10 years of COFRAC (Comit© Franais d'Accr©ditation) accreditation (Accreditation No 1-0884). COFRAC and UKAS are members of EA (European cooperation for Accreditation), which is recognised by all European countries and worldwide through ILAC (International Laboratory Accreditation Co-operation). UKAS, COFRAC and equivalent accreditations are becoming an increasingly important requirement for companies that provide local test and calibration facilities.

Countries where UKAS calibrations have been performed by Lloyd Instruments' engineers include the UK, Ireland, Cyprus, Denmark, Germany, Singapore, Oman and China. Calibrations have been carried out in France, Italy, Tunisia, Algeria, Morocco and Luxembourg by Ametek SAS under COFRAC.

With an international network of distributors offering technical and service support, Lloyd Instruments offers accredited facilities at locations throughout the world. The company's service partners in India (Hemshell Services (Calibration Division of Hemetek Techno Instruments Pvt Ltd)) and in Thailand (Dynistec Co Ltd), are accredited to ISO 17025:2005 for site force calibration of universal materials testing machines. Testing and calibration laboratories that comply with ISO 17025 also operate in accordance with ISO 9001.
