Calibration is a comparison between a known measurement (the standard) and the measurement using an instrument.
Calibration of your measuring instruments has two objectives. It checks the accuracy of the instrument and it determines the traceability of the measurement. In practice, calibration also includes repair of the device if it is out of calibration.
Why and when you need to calibrate your equipment and tools
The accuracy of any measuring tools and equipment reduces over time. This is normal and it is caused by wear and tear. However, changes in accuracy can also be caused by electric or mechanical shock or a hazardous manufacturing environment. Depending on the type of the instrument and the environment in which it is being used, it may wear out very quickly or over a long period of time. The bottom line is that, calibration improves the accuracy of the measuring device. Accurate measuring devices improve product quality.
A measuring device should be calibrated:
- According to the recommendation of the OEM
- After any mechanical or electrical shock.
- Periodically (annually, quarterly, monthly)
