Starting to get Involved
Yes, you absolutely can. In our procedure on Management of measuring devices it is stated that we send some gauges to the certified external lab to be calibrated and then these gauges are used to internally calibrate e.g. micrometers. It really depends on what kind of measuring equipment we are talking about, there can be different approaches. The calibration periods should be defined in the maintenance program both for measuring devices and separately for the gauges used for internal calibration.
