Calibration Select has partnered with NW Aeroforms to provide a comprehensive range of metrology calibration services to the aerospace industry.
With 130 years of expertise in delivering calibrations to a range of industries, Calibration Select – a division of Avery Weigh-Tronix – offers a comprehensive metrology equipment calibration service.
The new partnership with NW Aeroforms, a specialist supplier to the aerospace industry, widens Calibration Select’s expertise in the calibration of torque equipment and SME tools commonly used within the aerospace industry.
Andy Fox, Compliance Business Unit Manager, Avery Weigh-Tronix, commented:
“This partnership strengthens the level of service and expertise that we can offer our customers in the aerospace sector. Our combined technical expertise and sector understanding, along with our extremely quick turnaround times, mean that we are well positioned to meet the needs of this very demanding industry.”
With quality, safety and performance at risk, the accurate calibration of metrology equipment is critical in the aerospace sector. In an industry where the cost and impact of failure is high, exacting standards and strict regulatory requirements mean that aerospace customers must adhere to regular and reliable calibration schedules.
To meet these requirements, the companies are offering a same day, on-site calibration service, which has been designed to reduce downtime and minimise disruption. Within minutes, the team can carry out calibrations, tests, and repairs on torque hand tools directly on the customer’s site (including line-side, if required) from their mobile laboratory.
For calibrations carried out off-site at the companies’ laboratories, a five-day turnaround is guaranteed.
Andy continued: “The cost of downtime in the aerospace industry can quickly run into tens of thousands, making it vital that equipment is tested and calibrated on-time. It’s critical that having access to a swift turnaround is part of the service for our customers, and this fundamental service offering has formed the bases of our partnership with NW Aeroforms.”
Calibration Select also offers customers access to its asset management system, allowing quick and hassle-free access to calibration certificates.
The information includes details of the measurement results and procedures used for the calibration, ensuring that aerospace customers can meet the industry’s strict documentation and traceability requirements.
