In today’s world of high-performance industries, power electronics play a pivotal role in the most critical of applications. Therefore, electrical tests and measuring instrumentation must consistently provide precise and accurate readings.
Not Calibrating Your Instruments Could Put Your Business At Risk
Like any measuring tool, even the highest quality electronics are subject to drift. While proper usage can help maintain your instruments within tolerance for longer, the simple truth is that tolerance drift is inevitable.
This means that the measurement results will be less accurate over time, negatively impacting your business. Some industries rely more heavily on precise electronic measurements than others, such as:
- Biotechnology and pharmaceutical
- Food and beverage
- Power generation
Inaccurate readings within these industries have far-reaching repercussions. Risks from not calibrating electronic measuring instruments range from decreased productivity, safety issues concerning both operators, physical facilities, and product quality, inaccurate reading can also translate to increased waste and higher operational costs.
4 Risks of Not Calibrating Your Electronics Regularly
Inaccurate readings can result in wasted materials and inventory loss due to inadequate storage or processing.
Decreased Product Quality
Erroneous measurement of quality metrics, including temperature and humidity, will inevitably affect your manufacturing processes, compromising product quality.
Instruments operating out of tolerance will produce inaccurate readings. Misreadings in storage and handling processes can pose an immediate risk to the safety of consumers. Should your business fail to meet safety standards, a product recall may be necessary, leaving you exposed to costly legal repercussions and fines.
Customer loyalty is a fragile metric. It takes time and financial resources to gain and maintain the trust and respect of consumers. Your brand name could be at risk if your product quality is suffering due to inaccurate electronic readings.
Benefits of Electronics Calibration
Electronics calibration has three primary goals:
- Ensure the reliability of your equipment
- Determine its accuracy
- Ensure readings are consistent and traceable to national and international standards
Maintaining your equipment operating within tolerance will significantly reduce safety hazards within the manufacturing and storage facilities and help guarantee product quality.
High standards of quality and safety will serve to reduce waste and operational costs, extend the life of your equipment, and reduce the risk of product recalls and legal action against your company.
