Our calibration process includes operations, tests, and measurements performed under a specified set of conditions to define the relationship between a displayed value and a reference value.
Why Is Calibration Required?
The calibration process checks the speed of your welding machine’s voltage, amperage, and wire feed. It helps to determine the gas flow rate of its welding current source. Generally, MIG/MAG, manual metal arc welding and WIG systems are calibrated. Further, if you need to ascertain if your welding equipment or system conforms to its specified operating parameters, verification is the suitable option.
How Often Should Calibration and Verification be Performed?
According to IEC 60974−14, it depends on your welding machine manufacturer as well as you. You can have your systems and machines calibrated or verified annually or more frequently, as stated by your equipment manufacturer.

Apart from calibration services, verification can also be helpful. It includes the processes of calibration and validation. It is always better to calibrate your machines for quality and efficient results.
