Despite the importance of calibration, many people don’t understand what it is and why it is necessary. “Calibration: What Is It?” answers this important question to help improve weighing accuracy and provide better quality to customers.
This new installment in METTLER TOLEDO’s “Small Details, Big Difference” series covers three topics essential to calibration:
- Why calibration is necessary,
- The difference between calibration and adjustment, and
- Tolerances and why they are critical.
“Calibration” and “adjustment” are often used interchangeably. However, adjustment should never occur in the absence of calibration. Only after an instrument’s current performance is clearly understood through professional calibration should any type of adjustment be attempted.
In short, calibration keeps weighing from becoming guesswork.
