Pune: IMTMA organised a two-day workshop on “Calibration of Dimensional Measuring Equipment &  Evaluation of Uncertainity in Measurements”, on 15th - 16th this month in Pune, in order to focus on the importance of calibration, the needs and methodologies of calibration, in diverse range of manufacturing activities.

Obtaining accurate, reliable and traceable measurements is one of the basic requirements in order to achieve required levels of product quality, in any manufacturing activity.

The instruments / equipment used for measurements should be initially and also periodically calibrated to ensure fidelity of measurements. The process of 'Calibration' assumes greater significance in the light of advanced technology where interchangeability and functional reliability of critical and closely toleranced components and assemblies are of paramount importance.

The workshop was addressed by Mr. B N Taranath, formerly Head of Precision Engineering, Central Manufacturing Technology Institute (CMTI), Lead assessor for NABL and International Accreditation Service Inc. (USA) and an acknowledged expert in the field of Precision Measurements & Metrology. The workshop was highly interactive where participants raised questions and solicited feedback from the faculty.

With a view to provide practical exposure, visit to ACCURATE ENGG. a NABL Accredited Precision Metrology Laboratory was organised on Day 1 (15 April 2008). This enabled participants, to understand the process of Calibration of different kinds of  measuring equipment, through practical demonstrations.

The workshop was attended by Managers, Engineers and middle management personnel involved in the functions of Production, Quality Assurance,Inspection & Testing, Design & Development, R & D, Engineering and other related functions from Machine Tool, Automobile & auto ancillaries, Tool Rooms, Aerospace, Defence and Railway establishments, General Engineering and other Capital goods manufacturing industries.

The workshop was beneficial especially to those personnel involved in the functions of Inspection, Metrology & Laboratory Accreditation .

Focus Areas of the workshop included: Introduction to Calibration ; Relevance of Calibration to ISO 9000 / QS 9000 / Accreditation by NABL ; Care in Calibration ; Calibration methodologies ; Laboratory accreditation as per ISO/IEC 17025:2005 ; Concepts and calculation of Uncertainty in Measurement ;  Reference equipment & Traceability aspects in Calibration ; Environmental effects on Calibration ; Documentation on Calibration ; Practical examples in Calibration with Group exercises
