Everything we design, make or build has traceable evidence back to our purpose-built Metrology Lab, which in turn has traceable evidence to Australian and International measuring standards.

So what is a Metrology Lab?

Metrology is the science that deals with measurement. So in short, a Metrology Lab is a specifically designed, air-conditioned metrological room containing precise measuring equipment in which the temperature and humidity are maintained and controlled.

According to the ISO 1 Standard, for dimensional measurements in the metrology sector, 20°C is the reference temperature for the geometric specifications for parts.

A Metrology Lab is required to perform accurate calibrations, measurements and mechanical processing in controlled environments at precise temperatures.

So what does this mean? Simply, you can be confident when you partner with GMS that we’re guaranteed to be a perfect fit.
