On April 1 the department of the leading metrologist of LOMO PLC celebrates its 30th anniversary. In spite of unserious reputation of the date creation of this necessary to any high-technological enterprise service became an important milestone in the firm’s history.
The department was founded on the basis of Central Measuring Laboratory and several test stations. At that period of time – in 1974 – the unique service was firstly organized at such large device engineering enterprise. And it was unusually, that test center entered into the service besides laboratories of examination, repair and checking of means of measuring.
The cycle of tasks was determined quite broadly. These are conducting of especially precise measuring, repair and checking of measuring devices, metrological examination of constructing documentation, carrying out of tests of instruments on influence of climate factors and so on. These are exceptionally important tasks: high level of metrological service provides creation of precise and reliable devices.
To the beginning of 90s in the result of systematic and purposeful work the department of leading metrologist of LOMO became one of the best in the country at the level of equipping and was appointed the base organization of metrological service of the Ministry of Defence Industry. The department worked intensively, provided a great help to related enterprises.
