Workshop on Calibration of Dimensional Measuring Equipment & Evaluation of Uncertainty in Measurements

 11-12 July 2008 at Habitat World, India Habitat Centre : New Delhi

New Delhi: IMTMA is organising a two-day workshop on “Calibration of Dimensional Measuring Equipment & Evaluation of Uncertainity in Measurements”, on 11-12 July 2008  in "Maple Room", Habitat World in India Habitat Centre, Lodhi Road, New Delhi (Entry through Gate No. 3 of India Habitat Centre), 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.

Focus Areas

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


The workshop will be 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 will be highly interactive where participants could raise questions and solicit feedback from the faculty.


With a view to provide practical exposure, visit to Accurate Engineering Laboratory is being organised on Day 1 (11th July 2008). This will enable participants, to understand the process of

Calibration of different kinds of measuring equipment, through practical demonstrations.
