3 REASONS TO CALIBRATE YOUR EQUIPMENT
“Calibration is a process of verifying the readings of an instrument to match a traceable standard. If the device cannot read that specific tolerance / measurement, it can be adjusted so that it can provide accurate data accordingly to the known standard.”
Calibration has been a good reason to:
- Reduce Measuring Error of an Instrument
The possibility of experiencing error in precision & measuring instruments / equipment are common. This can be due to long-term usage, internal damage from temperature exposure or by some unavoidable uncertainty in the measurement. Which can lead to costly surprise of recalls, rejects and rework, due to out of tolerance reading.
“After a device is verified & calibrated, it can prevent those costly surprises by having accurate results of measurement.”
- Cut Costs from Manufacturing Errors
In manufacturing, defects found in a production process can be very costly to both time and resources used. This process will then need to be stopped, restarted, and have the parts remade to prevent future defective parts delivered to clients. To reduce defects from occurring in the production line, e.g. the sensors monitoring these processes should be accurate.
“Calibrating the related gauges & instrumentation can reduce potential production defects.”
- Comply with the International Standard
A mandatory requirement of QA standard ISO 9001 is to demonstrate control of the measurement and test equipment. By ensuring that the instruments are calibrated on a periodic cycle, and its records are maintained and reviewed.
“In a workplace, calibration allows you to use your measuring & testing instruments with confidence.”
