Calibration Methods

There are multiple ways to perform calibration. Select the optimal method that matches the conditions within your company.

Calibration type Overview
In-house calibration Certify a calibration specialist in-house, determine details such as the calibration interval and the calibration criterion, and then perform calibration. (Examples: Vernier calipers, micrometers, etc.)
External calibration (Off-site calibration) Send the measuring instrument to a calibration organization outside of the company, and have that organization perform the calibration. (Examples: Gauge blocks, dial gauges, etc.)
On-site calibration Submit a request to a calibration organization to have them send a calibration specialist to your company in order to perform on-site calibration. (Examples: Optical comparators, coordinate measuring machines, etc.)
