S.A. Meier Company

At S. A. Meier Co. of Milwaukee, Inc., we service what we sell. Our goal is to provide 100% applications, calibration, and repair services on site or from our facility. Our technical staff is factory trained to provide you with factory quality service, with the experience of working in the field on the products we market. In addition, familiarity with the products and procedures provide a good base to calibrate and work on similar products we don't sell.

Application Support

Our technical staff has years of experience and will guide you through your application to provide you with systems that meet your needs.

Application notes are developed to help you though some of the common challenges or questions when using the products. These may be a simple as how to invert a display or as complex as selecting the appropriate calibration facility.

Configuring a test system can be difficult because of the many options available. With your test parameters, we can configure a system that will best suit your application and will give you options to consider. If you don't know the parameters, we can take your sample and determine the best grips and gauge or load cell for the test.

Many of the force gauges and material test stands have special calibration requirements, equipment and/or specifications. Force measuring is unique and specialized. Factory training is often necessary to make calibration adjustments to the device. We have the necessary tools and training to perform calibration in our facility or on location of your force or torque equipment. We are capable of calibrating to 50,000 lbf, both in compression and tension. Standards used for calibration are NIST traceable and certified for accuracy consistent with HB-44. Certificates contain initial (as found) and adjusted (as left) readings, pass/fail status, manufacturer's specification and other information about the device calibrated. A recall data base is maintained and reminders are sent to you prior to the due date of the device. Onsite calibration is performed consistent with the requirement for Material Testers per ASTM E4-01.

Our scope is Sales, Service and Calibration of Force Measuring, Material Testing and Weighing equipment. In addition we have Wisconsin Weights and Measures Certified Technicians on staff for commercial weighing scales.

Custom Fixturing

Not all applications are alike. Often, specialized fixtures are needed to hold or grip the test specimen. From your test requirements and a sample, we will design and manufacture a fixture to suit your needs. No matter how difficult the sample is to grip, we have the experience to provide a grip that will work for you.

All of the manufacturers we carry offer their own line of grips and fixtures, sometimes unique in capability. We have developed adaptors so that many grips and fixtures will fit onto other manufacturers equipment.


Equipment repairs are performed following the manufacturer's procedures. We have a large inventory of repair parts and can often be onsite in 24 hours if necessary. We also have a parts inventory for many devices that are no longer manufactured or supported by the manufacturer. If we can't repair it, we will give you a trade in allowance if you replace it with another device from us.

Getting a repair estimate often requires an evaluation to determine the failure. Contact us and we will guide you through the estimate process.

Testing Services

Although we are not an accredited test lab, we can test parts or assemblies and provide a written report. If an amount of testing is required over one week, or a longer period, you may want to consider renting force or material test equipment from us. Click HERE to view our rental equipment.
