Broomfield were the first company in the world to develop specific sets of tungsten carbide gauge blocks. Today it remains one of the few companies to specialise in the manufacture and calibration of gauge blocks.
Using only the finest grade tungsten carbide, Broomfield manufactures all grades of standard gauge sets in metric and imperial to meet any required standard (EN ISO 3650:1999, BS 4311:2007, American Standards).
Broomfield also offers Customised gauge block sets or individual gauges as required in sizes ranging from 0.20mm to 100mm and from 0.010ins to 4.0ins.
Standard steel & ceramic gauge blocks can be supplied along with steel long series gauge blocks from 125mm to 1000mm . We also supply plug gauges to customers requirements.
With Class ‘A’ accreditation verified by UKAS , the Broomfield calibration laboratory No. 0103 not only has the authority to calibrate grade K (Calibration Grade ) gauges but also to validate the primary standards used in a vast number of other UKAS laboratories.
An early adopter of computer controlled inspection processes for calibration and interferometric calibration. Broomfield’s years of development with tungsten carbide has allowed it to produce gauge blocks from this superior material at a cost comparable with quality steel gauges.
With more than 50 years experience in the production and calibration of high precision gauge blocks – Broomfield offers unparalleled levels of service and quality to an international client base in, among others , the automotive, aerospace and defence industries.
Broomfield also offers a service for specialised lapping and laser marking of customers own material.
