If your company manufactures components that must stick to set tolerances, your quality control team measures those parts. The tools you use to determine your components’ measurements depend on your industry. Still, those devices must receive maintenance and calibration for your team to get accurate data.
Why Is Routine Calibration and Maintenance Important?
Scheduling routine calibration and maintenance for your measurement and weighing equipment is one of the most important things you can do for your quality control team. These tools are essential for verifying your products meet industry standards, customer specifications, and federal regulations. However, these instruments need regular inspections and testing to ensure they work properly.
Measuring your devices and performing weighing equipment calibration helps your quality control department glean reliable output from their tests. Confirming that components are interchangeable and meet expectations is a vital part of quality control for several reasons. Accurate measurements:
- Reduce the number of components rejected by the customer.
- Decrease remakes of parts that have already left your facility.
- Reduce the risk of recalls.
- Promote employee and end-user safety.
- Associate your brand name with quality and attention to detail.
Knowing how to create a schedule for weighing equipment maintenance can be complex. Often, an instrument’s recommended calibration interval falls short of your company’s realistic needs. Various influences, like extensive use, environmental factors, and accidents, can make your measuring equipment read outside the tolerances accepted by industry and government professionals.
