Importance of Turnaround Times in Calibration Services

In an everchanging world where precision manufacturing has become the new normal, finding the right Calibration Service Provider has become even more important and necessary. The rising question of, how do I know when to calibrate my tools and instruments and where should I ship them? This question becomes even more important when merged with the cost of downtime due to the absence of the very tools and instruments required for your manufacturing process.

Finding the Right Fit for Your Calibration Needs

It is extremely important when choosing a Calibration Service Company that you ask about their turnaround time for equipment serviced. Many times, you may send your tools and instruments out and wait as long as a month or more to receive them back. Very few manufactures can be without a tool or instrument for that amount of time when working to meet today’s high expectations in the manufacturing world.

Importance of Calibrating Tools and Instruments

Sometimes today’s manufacturing demands may cause you to extend your calibration needs to a later date or just not have your tools and instruments calibrated in order to maintain your customer’s demanding schedules. Avoiding calibration intervals of your precision manufacturing tools and instruments can be extremely costly, even more so than the downtime experienced from sending them out for calibration services. Precision manufacturing utilizing tools and instruments that are out of calibration can be cause for pricy recalls, dissatisfied customers and may violate your quality control procedures.

We aim for a 5-business day turnaround time from the time we receive your gages for calibration services. Oftentimes, we can exceed this expectation with as little as a 3-day turnaround time, and for an additional charge, we offer expedited services.
