Optical Test and Calibration Ltd


Maintenance & Repair Services

Repair and maintenance services are offered on a wide range of products for which calibration is undertaken. OTC is able to bring together a unique combination of specialist expertise and test equipment, which allows the company to offer an in depth repair service for a wide range of electronic test equipment.

As test equipment ages, the possibility of it failing calibration increases for many different factors – components reaching their end-of-life, poor handling and storage, use in dirty or damp environments etc. OTC’s technicians can use their experience to optimise, adjust or clean equipment whenever possible. They are skilled at repair down to component level and have vast knowledge of where to obtain that hard-to-find or obsolete part. Quite regularly, we can get your equipment working when the manufacturer has ceased product support or even gone out of business. We work on a time and parts basis, rather than a fixed price contract favoured by many manufacturers and this approach is almost guaranteed to be cheaper for the customer.
