What is Calibration?

What is calibration and why do I need it?

Calibration is best defined as the process of testing an instrument using another that is referenced to a known standard or set of parameters.

Calibration relates to the accuracy and quality of an instruments ability to give a reading; this reading may be a unit of pressure, temperature, force or similar.

Whilst calibration is commonly viewed as an unnecessary cost of business, the reality is that calibration is an essential part of measurement and control, and is such is vital in ensuring that measurements taken by organisation’s tools and instruments are accurate and that the measuring instrument is working as intended (and within the tolerances stated by the manufacturer).
