ISO 7500: CALIBRATION AND VERIFICATION OF TESTING MACHINES
One of the most important functions of dynamometers is the verification of forces generated by testing machines.
ISO 7500-1 AND 2
ISO 7500, parts 1 and 2, deal with the verification of uniaxial static testing machines for metallic materials:
Tension/compression testing machines: verification and calibration of the force measurement system.
Tension creep testing machines: verification and calibration of the force measurement system.
These standards require the use of dynamometers calibrated and classified according to ISO 376; the required precision level depending on the precision of the machine.
Although ISO 7500-1 and 2 apply to metallic materials, their use is often extended to other types of materials in cases where no specific applicable standard has been issued.
