CEN - EN ISO 7500-1
Metallic materials - Calibration and verification of static uniaxial testing machines - Part 1: Tension/compression testing machines - Calibration and verification of the forcemeasuring system
|1 December 2015
|ICS Code (Mechanical testing of metals):
This part of ISO 7500 specifies the calibration and verification of tension/compression testing machines.
The verification consists of:
- a general inspection of the testing machine, including its accessories for the force application;
- a calibration of the force-measuring system of the testing machine;
- a confirmation that the performance properties of the testing machine achieve the limits given for a specified class.
NOTE This part of ISO 7500 addresses the static calibration and verification of the force-measuring systems. The calibration values are not necessarily valid for high-speed or dynamic testing applications. Further information regarding dynamic effects is given in the Bibliography.
CAUTION - S ome o f t he t ests s pecified i n t his p art o f ISO 7500 involve the use of processes which could lead to a hazardous situation.
