Calibration services: Frequently Asked Questions
What is the meaning of calibration?
Calibration is the determination and documentation of the deviation between the reading of a measuring instrument and the value indicated by a higher-level reference device. More simply said, calibration is the comparison of two values when one of these values is already known and fixed.
Why do I have to calibrate my tools?
There are millions of reasons to calibrate. Calibrated tools and related measurement equipment are crucial to performance, quality, and safety. Organizations certified to different ISO and national standards must calibrate all their tools and measurement equipment with high accuracy. Also, you need to make sure that you are providing traceability results and that an accredited provider is performing calibration. Following these simple rules will allow you to save money while assuring the best quality levels.
What does traceability mean in calibration?
In calibration, traceability describes a process where the tool is calibrated by more accurate equipment according to a national standard. In fact, the national lab calibrates the measurement equipment to ensure an even higher accuracy than the tool. This chain of events provides us with what we define as “traceability” of our results.
