Currently, well-maintained electron beam welding equipment calibration is traceable to the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) standards. NIST traceable calibration is used for quality control. It is a quality assurance system.
NIST Traceable Calibration
Traceability is a measurement result property, as opposed to a property of an instrument or a calibration report itself. Calibration must be clearly and thoroughly under control and understood. NIST traceable calibration is metrologically traceable to a measurement unit that is acknowledged by the NIST.
Beamalloy Calibration is Traceable to NIST
Beamalloy maintains equipment calibrations that are traceable to NIST. Electron beam welding equipment calibrations maintained at Beamalloy are a part of the following quality control procedures:
- Straightness testing
- Leak testing
- Mechanical measurements
- And more
