February 20, 2018 – Dinner Meeting Information

MANAGING YOUR COMPANY CALIBRATION PROGRAM

We will initially spend about 20 minutes on the history of Calibration as well as a brief explanation of its benefits, and why it is required. We will then get into more specifics of Calibration:

* Changes and Increased Requirements within the Quality Industry
* Accreditation Specifics that you should be looking for in a Calibration Provider
* The importance of Traceability
* Definition of terms used in Calibration and what to look for in a Calibration Certificate
* What you should be providing your Calibration Provider
* What your Calibration Provider should be Providing you
* Examples of Equipment Specific Calibration Requirements

In Addition:
A Q&A Station that will be manned by ATI Metrologists will be set up in the room for more “specific” customer questions on Measurement & Calibration “after the presentation”.
If you would like to see how easy and effortless Gage Control can actually be, a demonstration of ATI’s A-Trax Gage Management Portal will also be set up in the room. An A-Trax account is set up for free for every customer. It completely controls your Gage Program (from Gage Due Notifications and Auto-Generated Packing Lists for Gages Due, to reports for Out of Tolerance Findings) making your job a lot easier.
