The result of not calibration generates big losses to the company because the reprocessed and scrap products, besides the productivity loss, incorrect judgments, loss of time, among other damages.

According to International Vocabulary of Fundamental Terms of Metrology (approved by INMETRO Nº 029/95) the calibration or admeasurement is the conjunct of operations that establish, on specific conditions, the relation between values indicated by a measurement instrument, or measurement system, or values represented by a materialized measurement, or a material of reference and the corresponding values of the magnitudes established by default.

Though the calibration process it is possible to obtain several advantages:

  • Labs and food companies can reach the highest level of perfection on their products (in formulas), once their equipment will be the closest to exaction;
  • Several industries may keep production lines rounding by the maximum time without generating wastage of equipment or downtimes out of the programming, increasing the productivity and decreasing costs.

The calibration question is treated in Engeman® though periodic and accumulative plans and variable trends where the limits for verification, alert, calibration W.O. generation are parametized.
Let’s suppose that an equipment registered as high precision balance, in which the client has the need to control the process of measurement, corrections and calibration of this instrument is made by any method. Initially, the limits will be defined (maximum and minimum limit) from this point of control. Periodically will be done measurements in the equipment, with the number of collection defined freely. The average of these collections is applied with the point of control, in case it is out of the limits (maximum or minimum), automatically, Engeman® can execute an action. point of control variable trends. It’s also possible to follow the application of these chart average and several reports. The flexibility of the system allows to create new reports and charts according to need of each company.
