How often should I calibrate?

Calibration requirements are very dependent upon the particular instrument that you are dealing with. Different manufacturers have different recommendations, although many suggest an annual calibration cycle. That’s what we recommend for our own optical tooling products. However, certain circumstances can dictate that a calibration be performed more often than that – things like physical abuse, rapid and extreme temperature changes, mandatory calibration cycles at your company by virtue of your own quality control or ISO programs, or even the occasional unauthorized tinkering can indicate that a calibration “check up” may be warranted. That’s why a calibration sticker is always a part of our service. You can easily check on each instrument to see when the last calibration was performed, and when the next one is due.
