MATsolutions New Lab Capabilities: Mahr ULM600

MATsolutions calibrates and repairs over 25,000 assets annually in our 6,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art lab, which includes an Accredited 68-degree Cold Room. To that end, the facility is stocked with the latest, highest-quality calibration equipment, including these recent additions and advanced capabilities:

  • Mahr ULM600 (Length Measuring Instrument)
  • National Instruments Calibration Executive Software
  • Gamma Scientific RS-10D (Light Measuring Instrument)
  • Thunder Scientific 2500 (Humidity Generator)
  • Certified Comparator CC-14 (Optical Comparator)

We’ve created a series of posts to review and highlight this equipment, and how it enables us to offer the fastest turnaround, lowest possible pricing, and highest level of service and accountability to our customers. We begin this series with the Mahr ULM600.

Mahr ULM600

Overview: The Mahr ULM600 is a ULM-E, or Universal Length Measuring Instrument, and is most often used as a quality assurance instrument in industrial manufacturing environments and a reference instrument for gage and test equipment calibration.


Used for calibration of: High-precision length measurements of precision tooling and parts, including threaded rings, threaded plugs, plain rings, plain plugs, gage blocks, gage balls, and end rods.  All measurements are performed in our Accredited 68-degree Cold Room, which is part of our ISO/IEC 17025:2005 Accredited Laboratory


Importance of the Mahr ULM600 in the MATsolutions lab: There are very few accredited calibration labs across the country that have both test equipment and physical/dimensional and mechanical tooling capabilities in one lab. A lab without this range of capabilities in-house has to send out the work to another lab to complete the service, often leading to longer turnaround time, added costs, and less quality control.


MATsolutions believes it’s important to have as broad a range of Cold Room, mechanical and physical/dimensional capabilities as possible under one roof, in addition to our complete test & measurement capabilities which span from DC to 50 GHz and Optical.  We are continually growing and expanding our offerings, and the high-end Mahr ULM600 allows us to provide:

  • Faster turnaround time – typically 3-5 days after a 48-hour temperature stabilization (soak)
  • Better value – with all the work being done directly by MATsolutions, there’s no additional 3rd party mark-up
  • Single point of accountability – keeping the work in-house means we have full control over the quality of the work, from start to finish
