Abstract


This paper describes NMISA’s new 5 kN deadweight force standard machine. The machine has the capability to generate force in the range 50 N to 5 kN. The machine uncertainty is conservatively estimated at 0.008 % across the entire measuring range. The weights are adjusted according to the gravity value measured in the laboratory. This machine is used for the calibration of force transducers in tension and compression.
