About Us and Frequently Asked Questions

AppMet, Inc. is a North Charleston, South Carolina based calibration/testing company.   In addition to offering dimensional, physical and electrical calibration services in our climate-controlled laboratories, we also conduct convenient on-site calibrations.    

Since 1993, we've proudly utilized the principles of continuous improvement to ensure that our military trained metrology technicians; state-of-the-art testing equipment; environmentally controlled, full service laboratories; convenient on-site testing; faster-than-standard turnaround times and customer service consultants are among the best in our industry.  

And as technological demands change, so do our capabilities. Today our laboratories are staffed with highly trained experts and the calibration capabilities to meet the needs of virtually any business or industry, such as automotive, aerospace, manufacturing, biotech, high tech, medical and nuclear.  

Prior to sending a technician to your facility for on-site calibrations, AppMet requires a purchase order number.   Work can be picked up or received by AppMet without a purchase order, but prior to completion we will require you to provide us with one.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between an accredited calibration and a commercial calibration?
Our accreditation covers specific areas of metrology that have been assessed by an accrediting body.   These accredited calibrations come with a certificate of calibration and measurement uncertainty, and demand that higher quality systems and standards are applied.
Unlike accredited calibrations, measurement uncertainty is not provided with commercial calibrations.
 
Our customers receive first class metrology services and enjoy peace of mind knowing that our measurements are traceable to NIST and other international standards.
Does data come with the certificate of calibration?
Yes.   We provide before, and after data, where applicable, on certificates of calibration.
Are Appmet's calibrations traceable to the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST)?
Yes. All AppMet sources are traceable to NIST and other international standards.
 
What types of calibration services does AppMet offer?
For your convenience we can perform many calibrations on-site at your facility. You may also bring or send your equipment into our environmentally controlled Laboratories at AppMet, Inc. If you would like to know more about our capabilities click on the service links provided.
 
How can I setup an on-site calibration?
Call our customer service department at 800-608-5570  or  843-767-5664  and our consultants will assist you.
How do I schedule a Laboratory Calibration?
Scheduling is only required for expedited services. For information and or quotes call our customer service department at 800-608-5570 or  843-767-5664.
 
Can all the equipment be calibrated at my location (i.e. on-site?)
AppMet is committed to offering our customers the most convenient calibration services anywhere-that's why we test as much equipment as possible at our customers' locations.   However, certain instruments must be calibrated in our climate-controlled laboratories.   Therefore, after we receive a list of your equipment we'll determine what can be tested at your facility and/or ours.
 
Will I be advised of repair cost beforehand?
Yes, Appmet's customer service consultant will provide you with costs once the unit has been evaluated.
What is the turn around time?
Our standard turn around time is 5 working days, but that can sometimes change when our work volumn peaks. You can call customer service at 800-608-5570 or  843-767-5664  to get a more accurate time schedule.
 
Do you offer an expedited service?
Yes. We understand when our customers are under deadline pressures and offer even faster services in these instances.   If you'd like to schedule an expedited calibration please call our customer service department at  800-608-5570  or 843-767-5664 and they will be happy to assist you. (Please Note: Because of the urgent nature and earlier deadline, these calibrations must be scheduled in advance).
Do you require RMA (Return Authorizations Numbers)?
No.   RMA numbers are not required.
 
What are your payments terms?
Net 30, with approved credit.   Any invoices not paid within 60 days may be subject to a finance charge.   MASTERCARD and VISA are also accepted.
Do you pick-up and deliver?
Yes. If you would like more information or would like to schedule a pick up please call our customer service department at        800-608-5570   or      843-767-5664.   They will be happy to answer all of your pricing & delivery questions and get you on our calendar quickly!
Will you remind me when my equipment is due calibration?
Yes.   As a service to our customers, we maintain a recall schedule of your equipment and will send you a reminder approximately one month prior to your calibration due date.   This will give you time to schedule your calibration.
 
Who determines the calibration cycle?
Our clients select their equipment cycle. If they do not or can't provide one we can provide a certificate without any recommended cycle.   The cycle should be based on the instruments accuracy, sensitivity, usage, environment, and the risks involved with their use, which only our clients can properly evaluate.
 
What if I lose the certificate of calibration?
No problem. If you lose the certificate simply call our customer service department at  800-608-5570  or 843-767-5664  or email us service@appmet.com.   One of our consultants will fax or mail a copy to you.
