Welcome to the new Schaeffer Precision Alignment blog. This blog is dedicated to discussing industrial alignment techniques and methods as well as news in the science of metrology.


Metrology (me·trol·o·gy) is the scientific study of measurement. Metrologists perform metrology work involving precision measurement and comparison of physical quantities such as mass, length, time, force, speed, voltage and current. They calibrate precision equipment which measures these physical units. They may also certify that outside standards of such quantities as mass and volume are correct.
