Equipment sold by Abtus is calibrated at the time of despatch. Most equipment, especially measuring equipment, needs to be recalibrated annually or if it has been damaged. Abtus is able to re-calibrate all of its own equipment as well as most other mechanical equipment on the market.
If you use measurement equipment for your work, the chances are that you are required to maintain its accuracy. Periodic recalibration is a standard requirement as well as checking/repairing equipment after an ‘incident’ where damage may have occurred.
We can help you maintain your calibration records by keeping track of your equipment, sending reminders when recalibration is due and offering full certification.
Abtus’ quality procedures are BSI certified and full traceability is maintained for all of our calibration equipment.
Abtus maintains a competitive edge through innovation. If you have a technical problem that needs solving or need some of our equipment to be customised, let us help you.

A close working relationship is vital to the success of any design project. We believe that our emphasis on setting up an effective and reliable communication interface with the customer leads to each project being completed on budget, on time and to specification.
From the intial discussion phase through to testing in certified laboratories, you can be sure that Abtus will place your needs at the top of the agenda.
