2000 Calibration
Software and Services
Buyers Guide

by Laurel Thoennes and Jesse Jones

 

You trust your calibration equipment to help you catch defects, so it's vital that your equipment be as well-maintained and precise as possible. Our 2000 Calibration Software and Services Buyers Guide provides the means for ensuring that your equipment is operating at its best, whether your goal is to meet ISO 9000 requirements for calibration control or simply to ensure that your testing equipment is receiving the maintenance it needs to function properly.

 Correct, up-to-date calibration records help show that all testing equipment is accurate and that test results are reliable and traceable to a test standard. The right calibration software makes it easier to document and control calibration equipment, saving companies time and money and offering a definite advantage to organizations with internal quality programs such as ISO 9000.

 Most calibration software is designed to control and collect data directly from a test instrument, analyze test result data, or manage labs by allowing users to track calibration histories via a relational database. Some products are able to perform all three functions. Although most commercial software is prepackaged and ready to use, some companies also provide customized software solutions. Numerous software packages offer different capabilities for each specialization. Our guide includes 40 companies that sell software for equipment calibration or calibration tracking.

 The following  lists 58 companies that provide calibration services at a variety of sites for everything from gage blocks to humidity-measuring instruments. You may find it more cost-effective for your company to outsource equipment calibration rather than incur the equipment and labor expenses of performing and tracking equipment calibration in-house. When selecting an outside supplier, consider such factors as lab accreditation, calibration standards traceability, pricing and turnaround speed.

 This guide is in no way meant to endorse or exclude any particular organization. To ensure the accuracy of our listings, we've listed only details provided to us directly from the vendor. Each company has supplied contact information and a short description of its available calibration software or services. Companies that provide software and services appear under both headings.

 As with our other buyers guides, we'll gladly respond to reader feedback and will continue to refine the format and type of information included here. If you have any comments about this guide, please contact us by telephone at (530) 893-4095, by fax at (530) 893-0395 or by e-mail at calservice@qualitydigest.com .
