Laboratory Testing Inc. (LTI) of Hatfield, PA recently expanded into a third facility, known as LTI East, to continue meeting the service needs of its growing customer base. This additional building has become home to the Administration Department and LTI Metrology, the calibration and dimensional inspection division of Laboratory Testing Inc. The vacated space at the main building is being used to expand the company’s materials testing laboratories, as well as the Sales/Customer Service and Marketing Departments. Expansion to the second building occurred in 2011, when Laboratory Testing Inc. moved Magnetic Particle Inspection, Liquid Penetrant Testing and Corrosion Testing to another nearby building to provide room for growth and new equipment.
The new LTI Metrology laboratory was upgraded with a state-of-the-art, climate-controlled work environment provided by Western Environmental Corporation. The new climate-control system monitors, regulates and displays both temperature and humidity around the clock. The room is kept at a constant 68o, plus or minus .5o F, for stabilizing measuring tools, weights and products before calibration and dimensional inspection to ensure accurate results. They system software also tracks temperature and humidity and maintains a database of historical data for reporting on conditions over time.
LTI Metrology is accredited by A2LA for instrument and on-site calibration and dimensional inspection services. Calibration is NIST-traceable and is offered for measuring hand tools, gages, standards and pressure, torque, force, temperature, electrical, mass, vacuum and flow instruments.
