The Importance of Regularly Scheduled Calibrations

Learn about the value of regular calibration services.

To ensure that your nondestructive testing (NDT) equipment continues to perform as intended in accordance with manufacturer specifications and in compliance with international standards, it is essential that your NDT equipment be periodically calibrated. However, to understand the importance of a regular calibration schedule, you must first understand what is calibration and how often it should occur.

What is NDT Calibration?

Calibration is the method of comparing a tool’s accuracy and precision against an established standard to ensure that the tool is providing conclusive, usable results. With time and use, a device may deviate from the correct calibration, providing you with inaccurate information when testing the quality of a product or system component.

How Frequently Should My Equipment Be Calibrated?

Calibration requirements can vary for different NDT equipment, so we recommend speaking with an Newco NDT professional to determine the optimal calibration schedule for your device so that your equipment operates at or above the required standards.

Who Should Perform My NDT Calibrations?

NDT calibrations should be performed by qualified NDT professionals to ensure that calibration procedures adhere to manufacturer’s specifications and international standards. All of Newco NDT’s calibration materials and standards are traceable to national standards and other recognized national calibration laboratories.
