ASME Basic Calibration Blocks are intended to be representative of actual components, and therefore do not have the smooth scanning surfaces found on most general-purpose test blocks like the IIW or DSC. Instead, our Basic Calibration Blocks are media blasted on all surfaces to create a rough surface texture that is more characteristic of real-world inspection conditions.
Thicker blocks available upon request. For handling purposes, 5 Thick Blocks and above get lifting lugs or handles welded on both ends.
