Gages come with certified calibration documentation highlighting calibration was performed in accordance with ISO 17025:2017, ANSI/NCSL Z540-1, Mil-STD- 45662A, Webber Quality Manual QCM-1G dated 11/15/14, and Webber Calibration Procedure WCP-C13 9/6.2006. Traceable to NIST. The numbered and registered gages are manufactured and tested to tolerances not to exceed +/- .006 (or +/- .15mm) tolerance level. These gages meet or exceed all requirements for the American Association of Railroads and the Federal Railroad Administration. These gages are direct contact instruments and some wear will occur after usage. The purchaser should periodically re-calibrate these gages or return them to Atema for recalibration and recertification. This assures that excess wear has not compromised the accuracy of the instruments.
Tapes come with certified calibration documentation certifying that standards and equipment used for inspection are certified accurate with reference to 68 degrees F, traceable to Master Standards at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). Calibration is performed with transfer standards which are progressively more accurate in the order of 4: 1. Starrett attests that the measuring and test equipment, and calibrations performed on the tapes are in accordance with ISO 17025:2017, ANSI/NCSL Z540-1, Mil-STD- 45662A. Accuracy is rated at +/- 1/32″ for the first 12 Feet, +/- 1/16″ for the remainder.
A note on calibration dates:
Calibration dates are suggested by the manufacturer. You may overwrite the one year re-calibration date with an interval of your choosing, as long as this is documented in your Quality Manual or other quality documents. Atema recommends a 5 year re-calibration date for gages used as a Master set.
