Weighing instruments are used throughout various industries, including manufacturing, health care and lab studies. Over time, regular usage and external factors such as movement, vibrations and even gravitational force can cause the balance and scale in the weighing instrument to lose its accuracy and require recalibration.
The Importance of Regular Calibration
Regular calibration, or the quantitative comparison of a measured value and the true value, is the only way to ensure that the weighing results of an instrument are accurate. Because weighing instruments can be used for everything from monetary transfer to legal measurements, regular calibration is essential for all devices. Failure to accurately calibrate a weighing instrument can result in:
- Inaccurate or irregular product weight
- Inferior product
- Loss of material
- Loss of profit
- Damaged business reputation
