Welding Machine Calibration
We carry out calibration of equipment to ensure that your welding machine is at the peak of its preformance.
Common causes of machine weld degredation are:
- Oxidisation of current-carrying surfaces
- Wear deterioration
- Air leaks
- Water flow restrictions
The first calibration usually involves a service to ensure that equipment is in top condition, test results are then used as a ‘benchmark’ for future checks. Subsequent test results are carefully compared with previous ones to highlight any discrepancies which may point to machine problems.
After each calibration, a certificate is produced and sent to the client, along with the test data.
Calibration is usually required by NADCAP (National Aerospace and Defence Contractors Accreditation Program) as proof that a machine has been calibrated by an accredited authority such as Sciaky.
We calibrate to either Rolls-Royce standards (needed when a machine is used on work for them), or to our own accepted standard.
Calibration is also very useful for a client to prove to his customer that a machine is in top form.
