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
The American association for laboratory accreditation (a2la) 0ffers programs for the
accreditation of testing laboratories, calibration laboratories, inspection bodies, proficiency testing providers, medical testing laboratories, reference material producers and product certification bodies. The requirements for accreditation can be overwhelming when looked at all at once, below is a brief summary of requirements to become an accredited calibration lab or other accredited body.

Large companies that own multiple instruments and tools for measurement will often need to get these tools all calibrated at once, and they find that sending their tools or equipment away for calibration is not the most time or cost efficient. They need an on site calibration service. On site calibration services are ideal for the larger (and also smaller) businesses that require calibration technicians to visit their company’s location and calibrate their instruments, rather than shipping material and tools outside their facility, increasing turnaround and cost.
1. Calibrating your instruments saves you money: Going without proper calibration causes parts and tools to fall out of sync or break. This can lead to costly repairs and the replacing of new parts. With test and measurement instruments, it’s best to stop a problem before it starts. Continue reading
Companies that require calibration services on their tools and equipment must choose from two main delivery methods. These are “in-house calibration,” where the company itself provides the calibration, and “external calibration,” where the company outsources the work to a calibration lab; preferably one that is reputable and accredited.

Why calibration is essential in an age of technological ubiquity
Take a look around you. What do you see? No matter where you’re at right now, you are surrounded by human developments and inventions: Computers, eye glasses, walls, clothing, phones, and even the text that you’re currently reading on the screen. These are all extensions of our individually limited human capacities. The wheel is an extension of our feet and legs, clothing an extension of the skin, computers an extension of our brains. These are all technologies that play essential roles in our daily lives, and there is one thing that they all have in common: measurement.
George Bernard Shaw once said, “The only man who behaves sensibly is my tailor; he takes my measure anew every time he sees me, whilst all the rest go on with their old measurements, and expect them to fit me.” If Shaw hadn’t expired in 1950, and instead lived to the modern age, he would have undoubtedly included e2b calibration on his list of those who take sensible measurements. Continue reading
The word “calibration” first appeared in the English language during the American Civil War. It comes from the French word “caliber,” which refers to the measurable diameter of a gun’s bore, as well as the Arabic word “qalib,” which derives from the Greek “calapous.”
As a verb, the word “calibrate” ends in the suffix “ate,” which refers to acting in a specified manner. Ergo, to “calibrate” means to make measurements in a specified manner.
2. Maintain the integrity of your work: Calibrated instruments lead to reliability, and reliability leads to integrity in your work.
3. Produce Measureable and repeatable data: If your instruments are up to standard and functioning to their full capacity, they will produce results that are measureable and able to be repeated. Continue reading
Many quality professionals understand the importance of making sure their instruments receive regular calibration. If instruments go long intervals without being calibrated, their measurements become faulty, and they can deliver inaccurate results. This can amount to incredibly costly consequences for the owners of the instruments. Non-calibrated tools can lead to the entropic demise of other equipment that might rely on these tools to function properly. Continue reading
To maximize the production efficiency of your tools, it is necessary to maintain proficiency over the tightening, controlling and measuring of torque fasteners. An improperly torque fastener can shake loose and come undone. On the other hand, if the tension is too high, threads can strip and fasteners can snap. Manufactures understand that proper care and upkeep of torque instruments can not only save them money in the long run, but it also ensures the prolonged use of these instruments. To make sure your torque tools are operating with the highest efficiency, keep these points in mind. Continue reading
