The Need for Accredited Calibration for Compliance to IATF 16949

IATF 16949:2016 is relatively new but included a significant change that provides specific requirements for calibration laboratories and vendors. It can be used by any supplier, large or small, and should be applied throughout the automotive supply chain.

What You'll Learn:

  • The Automotive Task Force Standard of IATF 16949, and how it affects semiconductor manufacturers
  • The requirements for internal and external labs regarding accreditation and other parameters
  • Strategies for creating a smart calibration strategy to pass IATF 16949 audit
  • Little-known factors to consider when selecting an accredited calibration vendor, including data security

Maximizing the Efficiencies of Your Internal Calibration Lab

In mission-critical industries such as aerospace, healthcare automotive, and others where human lives are at stake, properly calibrated electronic test and measurement equipment can be the difference between life or death. For many organizations that have in-house calibration labs, stakeholders rely on the calibration lab to be a source of truth when it comes to accurate calibrations and safety measures. However, the steep overhead costs required for running the lab, the long turnaround times for different instruments, and the lack of personnel resources can cause inconsistent calibrations and unnecessary stress around audits and safety. A partnership with an OEM calibration vendor can augment your internal lab capabilities and empower your in-house technicians to perform at their highest capacity.

Tektronix is here to help. Read this whitepaper to learn:

  • The hidden costs of an internal calibration lab
  • Factors to consider when deciding to between insourcing or outsourcing calibrations
  • Optimizing a decision checklist

NIST Traceable Calibration

In the U.S., the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) is the legally established national standards laboratory. Read about how most calibrations performed by Tektronix in the United States are traceable to NIST.

5 Useful Things to Know About Calibration Certificates

Properly calibrated instruments maximize ongoing operations for our customers as they provide essential information about the instrument’s performance and condition. Calibration certificates are provided as evidence of service for each instrument calibration. Read about what you need to know about calibration certificates to run an effective calibration program.

The Hidden Cost of Low-Cost Calibration

A decision to purchase a calibration service, based on price alone, may result in hidden costs and the potential for quality issues to affect your product or service. This overview provides tips on evaluating calibration service providers and their service offerings, and explains why the lowest cost calibration service provider may not be the lowest total cost to your business.

What is Your Calibration Interval?

Determining the right calibration interval for your test and measurement equipment depends on many factors with no “one size fits all” approach available. Learn what factors can influence your test equipment’s measurement accuracy and what to consider when determining your calibration interval.
