Some of the top industries we provide services to include those in the manufacturing, food preparation and packaging, aerospace, defense and pharmaceutical sectors. Learn more about main industries that regularly partner with Garber Metrology for their calibration needs below:
1. Food Preparation and Packaging
Food made for the public needs to have precise measurements during preparation and packaging. If these measurements aren’t accurate, there can be inconsistencies in ingredients or quantities, resulting in changes in the food’s taste or safety. As a result, companies in this industry turn to Garber Metrology to calibrate their measuring devices and ensure all measurements are accurate.
Many factors, such as temperature, heavy use and humidity, can affect the accuracy of manufacturing equipment. Our calibration services for manufacturing restore a measuring device’s accuracy to ensure manufacturing companies can perform their tasks safely and efficiently. By having accurate measurements, a company can trust they’re not overloading their equipment. Calibration is also crucial for packaging purposes, as packing heavy products in packaging not designed for them could result in dangerous spills and product damage.
The transportation industry has to accurately weigh its goods, products and vehicles to ensure quality and safety. Since the transportation industry relies on bench scales, floor scales and truck scales, companies turn to Garber Metrology’s calibration services to know their measurements are accurate. By knowing their measurement devices are accurate, they can be confident their goods and vehicles are safe. Weighing products accurately also safeguards moving equipment from overloads during the packing process and the products or transportation vehicle from damage while in transit.
Those in the aerospace industry know they must stick to very strict production protocols and meet various precision requirements. Due to this need to adhere to strict regulations and produce products safely, our calibration labs are ISO 9001 registered and ISCO/EIC 17025 accredited to ensure our aerospace clients receive highly precise calibration services. Our aerospace clients also benefit from the detailed documents and records we keep on their instruments, as it helps them certify their devices’ precision.
