The main duties of this department are to provide additional services to the Design and Analysis Department in order to promote and validate the activities and projects of Research and Development by using the structure of Metrology and Calibration, Metallography, Functional Tests and Vehicle Tests. Furthermore, this department also helps to improve the quality of manufactured parts and expand Shetabkar capabilities in different testing scopes based on customer requirements.


In Metrology Section, dimensional measurement is done with micron accuracy and in Calibration Section the accuracy of the measuring instruments i.e. gauges and other controlling tools are verified precisely by the use of CMM, Form Tester, VMM, Micro-hite, Roughness Tester and etc. All tooling in Metrology and Calibration Section have been supplied by the well-known brands i.e. Poli, Hommel, TESA, Arco, Mitutoyo and etc.
