Calibration:Why Do I Need It and How Will It Help Me?

Know The Purpose, Importance and Benefits of Weighing Equipment Calibration.

The accuracy of equipment, specifically measuring devices, degrades over time. This could be caused by normal wear and tear; just like all other equipment which degrades over a long period of time, and some electric or mechanical factors caused by a risky manufacturing environment. This is where calibration comes to the rescue- improving the accuracy of the measuring device to improve product quality.

What is Calibration?

Calibration is the process of comparing two measurement devices against each other and the documentation of this comparison. Calibration of measuring devices has three purposes: It checks the accuracy of the instrument, determines the traceability of the measurement and it repairs the device if it is out of calibration.

How can calibration help me?

● Profitability
● Product Quality
● Safety
● Production efficiency and equipment maintenance
● Improved compliance with regulat

Your CNC Machining Guide: An Introduction To CNC Machining

What is CNC Machining?

In any industry nowadays, the use of precise parts created by machines such as custom-made parts from fabrications or raw materials are widely common ever since the Computer Numerical Control or CNC became popular in the latter half of the 20th century, forever changing the way machine shops operate.

What Are The Benefits Of CNC Machining?

  • It is fast and efficient.
  • It is cost effective.
  • It is reliable and accurate.
  • It is broad and flexible.

 

What Are The Processes Under CNC Machining?

  • Milling– An operation where the cutting tool rotates while removing chips from it.
  • Turning– The opposite of milling; instead of cutting, it is rotating.
  • Drilling- This means using the tip of the tool to produce a hole
  • Boring– This operation removes the material to form an accurately inner cavity in a workpiece.
  • Broaching– Materials are removed with a series of shallow cuts.
  • Sawing– A narrow slit is carved in a workpiece using a blade.
