Calibration is critical to the performance of your measuring equipment. The goal of calibration is to minimize measurement errors and uncertainty.

Over time, instruments can drift outside of acceptable tolerances and report inaccurate results.

Calibration guarantees an instrument will measure accurately and reliably, every time.

To learn more about calibration, visit our Services page.

There’s no set schedule for calibration, so the best place to start is either the user’s manual for your instrument or the instrument’s manufacturer. As you begin using your instrument, note how your process impacts calibration and call for service as needed.

Without regular service and calibration, scales can be incorrect or operate outside of regulation requirements. Scheduling routine preventative scale maintenance can reduce costs, ensure your equipment operates at peak performance, and give you peace of mind.

Remember, many scales have warranty requirements that you should take into account for preventative maintenance schedules.

The answer varies quite a bit from process to process. In general, five factors impact the final true cost of downtime: Lost Revenue, Lost Productivity, Defective Product, Recovery Costs, and other Intangible Costs.

We created our Inaccurate Scale Cost Calculator to help you better understand the financial cost associated with inaccurate scales.
