We primarily use calipers for inspection. We have a set of gage blocks certified to NIST. What is the procedure for certifying our Calipers. We are going for ISO9002 in 98 and QS9000 in 99. I know we have a lot to learn in this area. Is anyone willing to help us get started down the right track.
thanks.

You have two choices for your calipers:

1. Send them out for calibration.

2. Work up a procedure for calibation and use your gage blocks to verify the calibration of the calipers.

How's that for starters?

And to add .. if you use the 2nd method (recommended .. thats what we do) make sure you have a procedure to regularly send out the gage blocks for calibration to NIST.

ALSO MAKE SURE YOU HAVE A CYLINDRICAL RING GAUGE AND ENOUGH BLOCKS TO CHECK THE COMPLETE RANGE OF ANY CALIPERS YOU HAVE(ie. 12",6", etc.)
