Customers often ask me about the differences of calibration services so I thought I would share some of the less visible topics related to the services.
Regular calibration of the measurement instruments is important for any business utilizing the measurement data in decision-making. Incorrect readings may lead to costly and incorrect decisions or even life danger in the most critical applications. Calibrating the instruments on a regular basis is simply a wise decision.
Selecting the correct calibration method and the supplier is the next important step. Earlier we touched the key elements for selecting quality calibration and the correct calibration option in the Vaisala webinar called Calibration as a Key to Better Business. It also points out how to validate the capabilities of different calibration suppliers. Assessing the content of the suppliers’ calibration certificate, for example, is one easy step in the validation process.
Most of the instrument manufacturers provide calibration services, but there can be significant differences in the services between the manufacturer and other commercial calibration laboratories. So what exactly are the benefits of calibrating your instrument at the manufacturer?
As you can see, there are multiple points to consider when selecting the calibration provider, but I would say that the choice is straightforward. By making a wise decision you leave more time for serving your own customers. Read more about our calibration services or place your calibration order at our Vaisala Service Portal online.
