All gaging equipment requires periodic calibration to ensure inaccurate readings do not cause problems with pricing, safety, customer satisfaction, quality, or other critical problems. How often do you need to schedule with us, can’t you calibrate your own gage? e2b calibration offers gage calibration in Cleveland Ohio and we can help you answer these questions and more.
HOW OFTEN DOES MY GAGE NEED TO BE CALIBRATED?
ISO 9001, which applies to all manufacturing operations, requires suppliers to calibrate “all inspection, measuring and test equipment and devices that can affect product quality at prescribed intervals…” a prescribed interval is roughly once every year, at a minimum. In some cases, especially when precision and accuracy are critical, more frequent calibration is necessary.
CAN’T I CALIBRATE MY GAGES IN-HOUSE?
It is possible to calibrate your gages without the help of an outside lab, but it can be more complicated and expensive than you might think. To bring calibration in-house you will need to invest in the necessary equipment and have staff trained to handle your calibration needs. Further, if you require NIST traceability you will be required to have test equipment that measure up to all NIST standards. Some large companies choose to take on this expense, but a majority of companies fined it is much more economical to use a calibration lab instead.
