Factory Seconds – Brinell and Rockwell calibration blocks
What makes a Brinell or Rockwell block a factory second?
Very rarely, we will make a reference block which doesn’t meet our standards for retail, even though it is perfectly acceptable for day-to-day use. It may be that is has an unsightly scratch, that the markings on the block aren’t especially clear or have been overwritten, or just that the hardness spread is larger than we would like (even if it complies with the standards).
Whilst these could be passed off as acceptable, we prefer not to work that way. Often, we simply use these up ourselves but sometimes we don’t have a need for them, so we can offer them to you here at a discount!
All blocks meet all the requirements of the standards, and all are supplied with UKAS certificates of calibration.
