Eliminate Incorrect Counting Risk
Calibration Prevents Financial Losses
Are you sure your counting scales are accurate? A scale’s accuracy can vary over time. Maintain consistent accuracy with calibration services by our trained technicians who understand your application and provide certificates and proof of traceability.
Heavy use and external factors can lower a scale’s accuracy over time. At a certain point, you cannot entirely be sure that you are still weighing within your process tolerances.
Calibration prevents miscounting
Do you wonder if you received the exact number of parts from your supplier or if you sent intact packages to your customers?
Stop unnecessary process variations and miscounting with regular calibration.
Services and certificates
Calibration ensures quality and compliance with unmatched ease and consistency. Whether you check bulk goods or small kits, or verify sub-assemblies or product packages, calibration service is crucial to keeping your scales running at their best.
If you do not have a supplier that completely understands your instruments and application, you may not receive the necessary services for all of your scales.
A METTLER TOLEDO service technician ensures you don’t have to worry about miscounting, failing an audit or basing your quality assurance on incorrect results. We offer a broad portfolio of calibration certificate types to fit your needs.
But how regularly should you calibrate your equipment? With limited guidance and many scales on the shop floor, keeping your equipment accurate with calibration depends on the factory’s turn-around schedule. The question is: is this frequency enough for my process tolerances or my desired counting accuracy?
Automotive supplier industry
The automotive industry has higher requirements regarding calibration than others in the manufacturing industry. The industry’s ISO16949 certification requirements demand that measuring equipment should be calibrated or verified at specific intervals or prior to use. However, it does not indicate the fixed interval.
Intervals depend on individual circumstances
The actual interval of calibration depends on how critical the weighing process is in your production. Manufacturers must define how much the money loss or the reputational damage would be if the piece counts are inaccurate. The interval can differ from daily calibration schedules to a calibration every couple of months or once a year. To be on the safe side, request an individual consultation by our Good Weighing Practice (GWP) team. This unique service provides you with all the information and guidance needed to support your equipment’s accuracy over time.
