Partner for the conformity assessment of length measurement machines:

lndustry, trade and commerce in many cases count on the basis of length measurements of assets. In these cases, the conformity of the measuring instruments acc. to the Measurement Instruments Directive MID/2014/32 / EU or to the Measurement and Calibration Act must be certified. Among other things, such conformity assessments for devices for measuring lengths and their combination determine the field of activity of PTB. PTB has already evaluated numerous length measuring machines with ELOVIS length measuring technology. PTB issued a part certificate for the MID-COUNTER, both for length measurement with a laser encoder and a measuring wheel.

Segments: conformity assessments according to MID 2014/32 / EU for length and sqare size measuring instruments for textile, non-woven, foil, cable, paper, …
