Metrology was the CERTI Foundation’s first area of expertise, and its operations are supported by its over thirty years of experience as a leader in the Brazilian and international markets. The field can be considered a set of methodologies associated with science and engineering, which is dedicated to providing measurement reliability, and conduct more precise measurements with greater validity and acceptance.
It is used in all sectors of the economy (industry, commerce, agriculture and services) and is considered essential for the generation and harmonization of products and processes. It is noteworthy that demand for exact and reliable measurements has grown not only in the industrial sector and in activities related to commerce, but also in the areas of health and safety, environmental protection, communications, agribusiness and in all fields of science and engineering.
With today’s growing demand for personalized products and services, characteristic of Industry 4.0, requirements are also increasing for resource efficiency and flexibility in today’s production processes. One big challenge is how to guarantee the quality of these products and processes. For this reason, developing a national technical infrastructure (standardization, accreditation and conformity assessment, metrology, technical security of products and market monitoring – referred to in Brazil as “basic technologies”) is essential for maintaining relationships of trust and security between producers and consumers.
CERTI offers a wide range of services for instrument calibration and reference standards, designed to comply with metrology reference standards and with up-to-date measurement technologies. Its versatile configuration has the conditions to conduct a wide variety of measurements, ranging from micro geometries, to free and complex surfaces, and non-contact measurements. All of these operations have low uncertainty and the ability to conduct measurements in the field.
