Calibration lab opened by Atlas Copco09 January 2020

For the purpose of delivering complete audit traceability and measurement assurance to its manufacturing customers, Atlas Copco Tools & Industrial Assembly Solutions has opened a new calibration laboratory at its UK headquarters in Hemel Hempstead.

Accredited by the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS), the laboratory aims to enable calibration of its customers’ tools and torque measurement equipment to ISO 17025. UKAS accreditation, it adds, covers BS7882 for torque measurement device and ISO 6789 for hand held tools.

Calibration work is undertaken in a temperature and humidity-controlled environment by approved technicians. The laboratory expands Atlas Copco’s tool and service portfolio by providing a single point of contact for calibration of its own and third-party measuring equipment to the ISO 17025 standard.

Csongor Tomos, business line manager for service at Atlas Copco Tools & Industrial Assembly Solutions, comments: “Accredited calibration of measuring equipment used in manufacturing answers the fundamental question of ‘Who is checking the checker?’ and is the first crucial step in ensuring quality in production.

"Our new UKAS accredited calibration laboratory reflects our customer-driven focus, as it enables us to provide fast turnaround equipment adjustment and repairs to minimise cost and downtime.”
