Tool calibration is used to maintain instrument accuracy. Calibration values are the comparison between the measurement capacity of a tool and the value which the tool must reach.
WHY DO YOU NEED TOOL CALIBRATION?
Tool calibration is necessary to maintain tool accuracy. There are standard regulations regarding equipment maintenance and quality assurance that needs to be followed. Apart from regulations, it is important to ensure that your measurement instrument is measuring correctly for the following reasons:
- To maintain or achieve instrument accuracy
- To reduce the cost of poorly performing tools
- To improve the performance of processes and the end product
By performing tool calibration, a business can save unnecessary expenses caused by badly performing tools which in turn impacts the quality of processes and end product. On the other hand, a calibrated tool provides you with these benefits:
- Improved quality of production
- Reduced avoidable costs due to rejects and reworks
- Improved tool performance
- Longer life of the tool
- Compliance with regulations
- Early detection of problems caused by inaccuracy
- Customer satisfaction
COMPLIANCE WITH NATIONAL STANDARDS
All of our measuring equipment used for Calibrating tools is traceable to the National Standard ISO17025.
Our tool calibration complies with equipment calibrated to National Standard. Our engineers routinely conduct calibrations for a wide variety of tools in the UK. We have the required skill, equipment, and knowledge to precisely calibrate a variety of air and electric tools.
At Total Air Tools, the calibration of air and electric tools is conducted by specialists. Our highly qualified, trained engineers have an in-depth knowledge of the functionality of each tool, calibration standards and the calibration process required. With years of experience in calibration, they provide quick and accurate measuring results.
TOOL CALIBRATION – WE MAKE IT SIMPLE
We offer complete tool calibration solutions where you simply send your tool to us and we return it to you accurately calibrated.
To make the calibration process quick and simple, we have in-house engineers and technicians who begin to work on your tool as soon as it reaches us. A thorough calibration is conducted where accuracy in measurement is of the highest importance.
Our quick and simple procedures are geared to offer you peace of mind while ensuring that your tools are calibrated accurately so that you don’t face problems arising out of tool inaccuracy.
With time, accuracy of measuring equipment is lost. This may be due to wear and tear, or exposure to disturbances such as electric shocks or hazardous environments. Any machine, however sturdy, will require repairs at some point in its life. When conducting calibration, we sometimes detect a problem in the tool that is causing inaccuracy in measurement.
Since we are a complete tool maintenance service, we have in-house qualified engineers who take care of any repairs needed that may be affecting the performance of the tool.
In the case of a repair, you are informed of the problem and its cost. It is only after your approval is received that we carry out the repair. After the repair is completed, the tool is again taken for calibration. After the tool is calibrated, we send the tool back to you, fully calibrated and working at its optimal level of productivity.
CALIBRATION & MAINTENANCE OF TOOLS
Often, businesses overlook the importance of calibration even when they regularly get their business machinery serviced. Including calibration in regular servicing is a great way to minimise errors and defects in the end product. Calibration can be seen as a preventive measure to avoid unnecessary costs and hassle that defective products lead to.
Calibration is not a lengthy process and doesn’t take long to complete. Though calibration should always be conducted by an experienced engineer, it does not mean your tool will be out of service for days or weeks. With Total Air Tools calibration service, you receive your tool in less than a few days, fully calibrated and ready for use.
CREDIBLE RESULTS – TRACEABILITY
For quality tool calibration, measuring equipment is used that is metrologically traceable to national standards ISO17025. Traceability is defined as the “the result of a measurement or the given value.
We take every step to achieve quality results in traceability, including measuring uncertainty. Thanks to our skilled calibration engineers, we achieve precise calibration results in a variety of tools.
INSPECTION OF THE TOOL
Upon receiving a tool, a thorough inspection of the tool is provided. The present condition of the tool is recorded. It is only after this initial inspection that the tool is accepted for calibration. If the tool has issues before calibration and requires repair work, repair is carried out after receiving consent from its owner.
A calibration certificate is provided to the customer, as a record of the calibration and its results. Depending upon your geographical location, a calibration certificate may vary, but essentially it will include:
- Date of Calibration
- The condition of the tool at the time of receiving
- The condition of the tool at the time of return
- Traceability results
- Standards used during calibration
Every calibration certificate has a unique identification number, name of the manufacturer, details of the tool, name and address of the laboratory/service, and customer’s name and address. The certificate is proof of the calibration and its results.
Total Air Tools provides a calibration certificate for every calibration conducted, which consists of all relevant details you require.
