Seminar 114: Hands-On Gage Calibration

Overview: Download Course Description

The Hands-On Gage Calibration course is a unique, active, educational experience designed specifically for those who plan and perform calibrations of dimensional measuring tools, gages, and instruments. This course is taught at the world-class, Mitutoyo America A2LA accredited calibration laboratory in Aurora, Illinois, by experienced instructors and dimensional metrology experts. The class size is intentionally small – a maximum of 6 students – to ensure personalized and customized instruction to meet the needs of individual students. The course combines modern calibration and quality management ideas with best practices and “how-to” calibration methods for common calibrations. The course is ideal for those operating in ISO/IEC 17025 accredited laboratories or in gage labs supporting manufacturing operations.

The course covers the most common dimensional calibrations but also allows for individual students to cover topics of interest. The full course overview (see above download) lists the possible calibrations and methods that may be taught in this class. Upon enrollment, students will have the opportunity to complete a questionnaire to ensure the customized course meets their specific needs. The Hands-On Gage Calibration course will also address the essential elements, policies, and requirements of a modern gage calibration system. Woven into the hands-on experience, the course will cover calibration system standards, laboratory management, traceability, measurement uncertainty, temperature issues, and laboratory accreditation.

Prerequisites: With the small size class, it is important that all students have the necessary background and training to ensure they receive the full benefit of the hands-on experience. Attendees should have general knowledge of calibration systems and experience operating various types of dimensional measuring instruments, equivalent to the Mitutoyo educational Seminar 116, Dimensional Metrology: Measurement, Inspection and Calibration.

Course Materials: The course materials include extensive photographs and descriptions of calibration methods, as well as complete calibration procedures, worksheets, and example certificates.
