IMTS 2022 Conference: Calibration Fundamentals

Learn the fundamentals of calibration.

July 18, 2022

About the presentation

You already know measuring equipment needs to be calibrated, but what does that really mean? What are the rules and best practices to manage calibration? Maybe you were told to use accredited calibration services, but what should you look for when hiring them? And what should you look for on the calibration certificate? Maybe you want to do the calibration work in-house yourself – how does that work? And is it really OK to not get something calibrated every year? These are just some questions that arise when managing the calibration of measuring equipment. Calibration rules have dramatically changed during the past 25 years, and unfortunately, the changes have made it more complicated for those who aren’t calibration specialists. This presentation is an opportunity to get the inside scoop from one of the leading experts in calibration by focusing on the commonly asked questions about calibration.
