Sending equipment out for calibration, as necessary as it is, can slow down your production, and in some cases even stop certain processes all together. To keep your equipment up to standards and keep operations running smoothly at the same time, here are a few tips as you choose your calibration service provider. Continue reading
Below are a handful of the major differences between these two accreditations certifications:
To ensure the consistency and accuracy of your calibration needs, it is best to use a ISO/IEC 17025 accredited calibration laboratory.
According to an article from Quality Digest, the United States has joined in on international standards for hardness testing. Why the change?
Historically the Unites States did not recognize international standards and was known for producing lower hardness test numbers (50-70HRC). The United States has been using the same methods for hardness standards for decades, even though our test numbers differed, they were understood nationally and internationally. Calibration Lab users and customers in and outside of the U.S. were able to deal with the differences without much of a problem. So why are there new NIST hardness test blocks? Continue reading

A quick history of the kilogram: When the kilogram was originally adopted as an international standard in 1875, a cylindrical chunk of metal was created – the international prototype kilogram (IPK) wich came to be the standard definition of 1 kilogram. In the late 1800’s IPK’s were distributed to 40 different countries to be used as the standard measurement.
The masses are stored in such a way to help avoid any change in temperature or pressure they may result in the acquisition of dust or debris- but it is impossible to keep them completely isolated from pollution which has resulted in a problem: Continue reading

A manufacturer’s production and development process relies heavily on test equipment. Test equipment is so important because these tools ensure the quality of a product, and they can determine the effectiveness of the production and development processes. It makes sense that keeping this equipment properly calibrated is needed to maintain the credibility of your business. This is why there are regulations and standards surrounding the calibration of test equipment.
When it comes to choosing a calibration service, it is important to choose a lab that is ISO17025 accredited. Yet, be aware that “compliant” is not the same thing as “accredited.” Some labs claim to be ISO 17025 “compliant,” however anyone can be “compliant.” “Accreditation,” on the other hand, relies on the expertise of a professional auditor.
For companies that require calibration of their tools and equipment, they have two main delivery methods to choose from. These methods are “in-house calibration” and “external calibration”. In-house calibration is when the company needing calibration performs the services itself, and external calibration is where these services are outsourced to an outside calibration laboratory; preferably a lab that is reputable and accredited.
If necessity is the mother of invention, than calibration is the mother of sustaining inventions. It’s been a liberal cliché that ‘nothing lasts forever,’ and that has never rang more true than with the tools and equipment we use daily in our jobs and work. Although these tools and equipment will eventually meet their end, calibrating your equipment regularly can extend their life and use. Continue reading
