AMETEK Land standardises certificates of conformity and adds calibration data as standard
AMETEK Land has standardised all its Certificates of Conformity for its fixed spot and portable infrared thermometers.
This also includes, for the first time, calibration test measurement data that is recorded during the standard production process at three AMETEK Land-specified temperature points. That means customers now can be assured that when they purchase an AMETEK Land instrument it comes with a Certificate of Conformity that confirms the instrument has been manufactured and inspected to documented procedures, in accordance with ISO 9001:2008, and has been calibrated against national and international standards. It also certifies that the instrument conforms to published specifications, drawings, workmanship standards and production order requirements. The Certificate of Conformity also outlines instrument details and specifications, giving vitally important information to the customer.
Phil Doyle, Customer Service Director at AMETEK Land, said, “We listened to feedback from customers and developed our Certificate of Conformity to meet their exacting requirements. The certification ensures customers that they receive consistency in certificate documentation with each thermometer they buy from AMETEK Land. With calibration test measurement data now available as standard, we ensure that the data is easily accessible for customers who require it in support of the quality processes for their products and services. In addition, the calibration test data provides our customers with even greater assurance of their instrument’s accuracy as well as evidence that it has been calibrated.”
AMETEK Land’s calibration service quantifies the instrument’s temperature measurement errors against three AMETEK Land-specified temperature points, allowing a customer to apply those errors as compensation to improve practical measurement uncertainty and improve the accuracy of their measurement capability.
Over the coming year, AMETEK Land will extend the new Certificates of Conformity containing test measurement data to include not only its fixed and portable infrared thermometers, as available now, but also its full range of thermal process imaging instruments.
In addition, AMETEK Land can offer an accredited ‘Best in Class’ service for further certification and calibration to those customers who require specific temperature points and traceability to national and international quality standards. All of AMETEK Land’s laboratory facilities are accredited against the ISO / IEC 17025:2015 standard as approved by national accreditation bodies.
AMETEK Land’s certification and calibration service verifies the performance accuracy of an instrument at a given point in time, as part of confirming the compliance of an instrument and enhancing its long-term performance.
