The AMETEK Land calibration laboratory in India has been assessed and accredited against the ISO/IEC 17025:2015 standard in the field of calibration, as approved by the National Accreditation Board for Testing and Calibration Laboratories (NABL). The laboratory secured the best calibration measurement capability of any laboratory in India for the 0 to 550°C range.
The ISO/IEC 17025 standard specifically evaluates a laboratory’s technical competence, impartiality and performance. The evaluation is carried out independently by the National Accreditation Board for Testing and Calibration Laboratories.
“We are really pleased that our laboratory has achieved such a high standard for its calibration services. It is testament to the expertise of our team as well as our investment in training and equipment,” comments Prasath Venkatasamy, National Service Manager for AMETEK Land in India. “Since our initial accreditation by NABL two years ago, we have established a strong customer base across India, which relies on accurate temperature measurement for maintaining the highest quality standards. A really important part of this is having the instruments calibrated periodically. This latest news further reassurances our customers that they are receiving the best possible calibration service.”
AMETEK Land’s India laboratory was established in 2011, when it began calibration and repair operations. It was the first OEM (original equipment manufacturer)-approved facility to receive NABL accreditation, which it achieved in an impressively short time frame. The laboratory is accredited to offer thermal calibration in the range of 0 to 1600°C for tests carried out in-house and 0 to 1200°C for on-site calibrations.
The National Accreditation Board for Testing and Calibration Laboratories is an autonomous body that operates under the aegis of the Indian government’s Department of Science & Technology. It was established to provide regulators and industry with third-party laboratory accreditation to testing, calibration and medical laboratories in accordance with International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO) standards.
The NABL assessment recognised the continuing investment that AMETEK Land has made in ensuring its calibration laboratory systems and infrastructure are best in class in India for non-contact infrared pyrometer/thermometer thermal calibration. AMETEK Land’s NABL certificate carries the reference number CC-2041 and confirms its scope of accreditation. In addition to NABL accreditation, the laboratory also is accredited to ISO 9001, giving its Indian customers greater confidence in AMETEK Land's ability to support them fully over the lifespan of the product.
