Why is Granite Surface Plate Calibration Important?
Surface plates change over time. The more granite surface plates are used, the more they change with wear and tear making accurate measurement more challenging. Granite surface plate calibration works to manage the effects of wear and tear and optimises the longevity of the graded surface.
Calibration work falls into two categories: maintenance and formal calibration. All granite surface plate users should implement maintenance procedures to keep their equipment working accurately for as long as possible. However, workshops should also implement formal granite surface plate recalibration in accordance with their Quality Manual.
Regular scheduled specialised calibration of surface plates and surface tables helps to maintain and support the overall manufacturing and quality requirement.
