When safety is on the line, precise equipment is essential. In the aerospace industry, contractors who perform quality control checks at any stage of the production process require sophisticated, reliable measurement instruments. If you work on or with aerospace components, regular calibrations are part of regulatory compliance as well as simple common sense.
MicronPA is a partner to aerospace contractors throughout Central Pennsylvania and beyond. Based in York, PA, we can provide on-site and laboratory calibrations for businesses as far away as Maryland and the DC Metro area. We offer fast turnaround times, fair pricing and a range of value-added services that help you run a more effective, profitable business.
Mechanical and Electronic Calibration Services
We are fully equipped to provide mechanical and electronic calibrations for demanding aerospace contractors. We can measure and adjust mechanical gauges and related equipment such as XXX class plain rings and plugs, torque wrenches, micrometers and microscopes, and more.
Our technicians will adjust and repair instruments as necessary to bring them into spec, and provide full documentation and certificates for each calibration. For electronic equipment including digital thermometers, oscilloscopes and data loggers, we use tools such as our Fluke 5520A/SC60 calibrator and Fluke 8508 multimeter to provide fast and accurate calibrations in your facility.
Mobile service is available for clients in PA, MD and VA. Whether it’s a single instrument or an extensive inventory, our technicians will work quickly and coordinate with your team to get the job done without interrupting regular operations. Repeat clients can use our web portal to manage calibration certificates, access data for reporting and auditing purposes and minimize the paperwork associated with keeping your key instruments working their best.
Standards and Certifications
The aerospace industry is heavily regulated, meaning calibration labs are required to adhere to high standards and to ensure quality service. MicronPA is accredited by the American Association for Laboratory Accreditation (A2LA) and registered with ISO/IEC 17025:2005(E). All calibrations are NIST-traceable and follow the appropriate ANSI, ASME, ASTM or NAVAIR guidelines.
Furthermore, we invest in regular training for our team and stress testing for our quality control procedures. Our technicians come from a variety of backgrounds, including the aerospace and defense sectors, and commit to ongoing continuing education to ensure they stay fluent in the practices and protocols that affect calibration and validation in your industry.
Why Calibration Is Important
In the aerospace industry, equipment calibration is a way of managing risk. Properly calibrated instruments mean accurate and repeatable results. Calibration is a component of quality management — one that provides you with the data you need to make big-picture decisions and ensure compliance with the applicable regulatory standards.
Ultimately, instrument calibration is a crucial step in running a profitable business. With the number of aerospace firms vying for lucrative government and private sector contracts, an organization with a reputation for inconsistency or delays will be unlikely to remain competitive.
