The A*STAR’s National Metrology Centre (NMC) is the national measurement institute of Singapore, dedicated to advancing measurement science for an innovative and competitive economy
NMC establishes, develops, maintains and disseminates the national measurement standards traceable to the International System of Units, providing key support to a wide spectrum of industry.
Achieving the nation’s highest level of physical measurement through close collaboration with leading national and international organisation.
With a multidisciplinary team of experienced scientists and engineers and state-of-the-art facilities, NMC provides dedicated services to industry partners to meet their specific needs.
NMC believes in working in close collaboration with industry partners, to create values for them and fuel growth for the industry.
This course covers the fundamental principles of weighing, mass,
balance calibration and measurement uncertainty. Practical issues
related to the use, maintenance and calibration of balances and the
evaluation of measurement uncertainties associated with the evaluation
of balance performances and the ISO 17025 compliant way of reporting
the calibration results will be covered. Participants will have the
opportunity to experience working with actual weights and get hands-on
practice on how to calibrate an electronic balance firsthand. This
course will be useful for engineers, researchers and consultants
involved in precision mass measurement that needs precise and accurate
balances to ensure the highest quality products and measurement
Mr. Lee Shih Mean, Mr. David Lim and Mr. Lim Gin Yen are,
respectively, Senior Metrologist and Senior Technical Executives in
mass measurements. Shih Mean, David and Gin Yen have many years of
experience in the areas of mass and balance calibration. They are
responsible for the establishment and maintenance of mass standards in
Singapore, and have conducted many training courses for the industry
over the years. Shih Mean is in charge of the Mass & Force
Laboratory in NMC. He is a qualified SAC-SINGLAS technical assessor. He
has also served as a technical peer reviewer for many overseas
national metrology institutes.
