This document is intended to help properly specify what you may need for ISO/IEC 17025 accredited ASTM E74 calibrations to ensure you are getting exactly what you need

Calibration Intervals - When is it time to recalibrate?

December 12, 2016 12:00:00

Since I became involved in the calibration industry in 1972, calibration interval has been a common topic of interest and confusion. I was asked to write an article for the newsletter & blog, and after some thought, I determined there was no need. Many people have published excellent content on the subject:

Top 5 Common Force Measurement Errors

November 07, 2016 12:00:00

At Morehouse we strive to replicate the loading conditions a customer may be using. Some other labs, may not follow this process and the additional measurement uncertainty from not replicating use, may create significant error source. Below are the top 5 common force measurement errors that may invalidate the calibration results.

Purchasing the "right" load cell system is critical for the application, and obtaining reliable results. Purchasing a system merely based on cost and not looking at the right specifications may result in a complete waste of capital. If the system chosen does not perform well in the environment it is being used, the resulting measurements may not be meaningful.
