Reasons for Calibration
You want to keep your customers. You can invest in routine calibration or you can spend your money trying to regain your reputation after you’ve disappointed your customers due to poor quality or missed deliveries. Improperly-maintained test equipment can cost you the trust and business of your customers. Avoid unscheduled downtime, prevent costly quality problems and product recalls, and keep your equipment in peak shape by calibrating it regularly.
Electronic components drift as they are stressed with age. Without periodic calibration, the measurements made by these components are compromised. Calibration aligns these components to a known standard of accuracy, thereby ensuring that your instrument is making accurate, repeatable readings. The result: consistent quality of your processes and consistent satisfaction of your customers.
Why Calibrate with Keithley?
Quality is important to you. You understand the importance of calibration, but now you’re faced with a choice of calibration providers. Don’t make the wrong selection. A poorly-performed calibration may save you money now, but it can cost you later in the form of poor quality, downtime, and unhappy customers. Who you choose as your calibration provider depends on what’s important to you. Keithley is world-renowned for our quality and measurement expertise. Why trust your equipment with someone else? You realize many benefits when you choose Keithley as your calibration partner:
Keithley is registered to ISO 9001:2000, and our Metrology Services Laboratory is accredited to ISO17025, the international standard for calibration laboratories. You can be sure that we follow the strict guidelines and requirements to ensure you’re receiving the best calibration possible.
Our calibration equipment is among the most advanced in the industry. This means that your product is calibrated to a high level of accuracy. Our measurement uncertainties are among the best in the business to assure you that your product is making the most accurate readings it can.
We offer fast turnarounds (typically 3-5 days) on our calibrations so that your downtime is minimized.
We take more measurements than many calibration providers, providing greater assurance that your product is making accurate, repeatable readings. The more thoroughly the product is tested, the more confidence you can have. Conversely, a calibration performed with a limited number of readings can lead to a false “pass” result.
Calibrations are available with product updates to ensure that your product contains the latest reliability and performance enhancements.
