Frenco International

UKAS Inspection

The metrology laboratory at Frenco is certified to ISO/IEC 17025 through the United Kingdom Accreditation Service. UKAS is the sole national accreditation body recognised to assess against international agreed standards for organisations that provide certification, testing, inspection and calibration services. Accreditation by UKAS ensures the competence, impartiality and performance capability of the Frenco laboratory and its systems.

The laboratory is temperature controlled to 20° C (+/- 1° C) ensuring total accuracy with gauges and gears stabilised for 24 hours before measurement takes place on a range of metrology equipment including the new Wenzel CNC - WGT 350 gear analyser.

The service primarily supports in-house manufacture but is also available to investigate customer issues concerning 'fit and wear' and recalibration / certification of existing gauges and master gears.
