Inspection Standards

Standards are specified in the DIN EN ISO 5436-1 standard

Standards are specified in the DIN EN ISO 5436-1 standard

In the profile method, the requirements placed on roughness measuring instruments are tough as they record roughness parameters of surfaces with a wide range of structures on different materials at a high level of accuracy.

The accuracy can change unnoticed due to constant use and the associated wear. In order to achieve meaningful and correct results, you therefore need to calibrate the measuring instruments on a regular basis using measurement calibration standards.

Due to the variety of measuring instruments and functions available, different standards are used. The properties of these standards are specified in the DIN EN ISO 5436-1 standard.

The most commonly used surface standards and their applications are listed in the table below.

Standards for Calibration and Adjustment of Contact Stylus Instruments in Accordance with DIN EN ISO 5436-1




Nominal Value/Output


Depth setting standard

Calibration and adjustment of the vertical magnification and repeatability of contact stylus instruments
Standard with grooves of varying depths with round or flat base



Stylus tip test standard

Checking and measuring the stylus tip for damage, wear and dimensional accuracy
Standard with high-precision profile geometry

Stylus tip status


Geometry roughness standard/
wavelength measurement standard

Calibration and adjustment of the vertical magnification, horizontal profile measurement, uniformity of the traverse unit function and transfer function of the contact stylus instrument
Standard with a periodic, regular profile structure with sinusoidal, triangular or trapezoidal shape

Ra, Rz, Rmax, RSm


Roughness standard

Calibration and adjustment of the contact stylus instrument
Can also be used to check the correct setting of the cut-off and the type of wave filter
Standard with aperiodic, irregular surface profile, based on practical experience and contains surface deviations, such as waviness and roughness with various amplitudes, wavelengths and phase changes

Ra, Rz, Rmax, Rk, Rpk, Rvk


Roughness standard

Calibration and adjustment of the contact stylus instrument
Standard with an aperiodic, irregular profile structure without interference from waviness or outliers (peaks) for parameters according to DIN EN 10049, which are measured using a two-skid probe

Ra, Rz, RPc

DAkks-DKD accreditation

DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025 accredited calibration laboratory

Our DAkkS-DKD accreditation includes the dimensional variables roughness, form deviation, contour and roughness measurement instruments.

Monitoring the deployed measuring systems for optimal measurement accuracy on a continuous basis is extremely important for consistent quality assurance, as meaningful and correct results can only be generated if the measuring instruments are calibrated accordingly.

The high standard of our products and services is no coincidence: It is the result of a systematic approach to global quality management. Our production sites are certified in accordance with DIN EN ISO 9001 and OHSAS 18001:2007.

Stricter conditions regarding product liability drive both quality assurance and the requirement to prove that measuring and test equipment provide accurate results.

The accuracy can change unnoticed due to constant use and associated wear. The device must therefore be calibrated regularly using measurement calibration standards.

At our DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025 accredited, vibration-proof and temperature controlled DAkkS-DKD calibration laboratory, we calibrate your delivered standards. This ensures direct tracing of the gaging components to the Federal Physical-Technical Institute (PTB, Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt) and guarantees measurements and calibrations at the highest technical standard for measuring.

If a standard cannot be calibrated, a new one can be obtained directly from our manufacturing facilities. Simple factory calibration certificates and test reports for non-accredited parameters are also available.

Please note: You can find the current DakkS-DKD Accreditation Certificate in the Download section below.
