Global Expert Calibration Services from Ametek and Land Ensure Performance Benefits, Lower Production Costs

July 27, 2021 - AMETEK Land, the world leader in high accuracy, non-contact temperature measurement systems, offers an accredited best-in-class global calibration service that ensures high performance, reduced downtimes, and protected investments for its range of infrared thermometers, line scanners and thermal imagers.
Temperature measurement is increasingly important to most industrial processes, particularly those in the metals industry. The use of correctly calibrated, high-accuracy instruments enables better manufacturing tolerances, enhanced product quality, and, ultimately, lower production costs.
AMETEK Land operates certification laboratories around the world that calibrate in accordance with ISO/IEC 17025:2017 (general requirements for the competence testing and calibration laboratories). These labs are accredited by national bodies to offer a comprehensive service for the certification of infrared thermometers, thermal imagers, scanners, and blackbody sources.  
The calibration of infrared thermometers, line scanners and thermal imagers is extremely complex and requires a high level of expertise to understand the effects of factors, such as size of source, ambient temperature, linearity, emissivity and detector sensitivity.
With high-specification infrared thermometers, errors caused by these complexities can be amplified. Incorrect calibration will destabilise the instrument, affecting its repeatability, stability and accuracy. AMETEK Land’s extensive product and temperature measurement experience ensures that the required verification and calibration is performed correctly.
Gary Wolstenholme, aftersales manager at AMETEK Land, said: “As the longest established manufacturer of non-contact temperature measurement systems and the first to open an accredited temperature measurement laboratory in the UK, AMETEK Land possesses unparalleled expertise in the field of calibration of non-contact thermometers.
“Our skilled engineers have product knowledge and expertise in temperature measurements and understand the complexities involved. This, coupled with our processes, equipment, and resources, ensures all of our work is professionally documented and fully traceable through our control systems and accreditations.
“In addition, manufacturers are increasingly aware of the benefits in quality and cost savings that reliable and accurate temperature measurement brings, endorsed by traceable and accredited calibration.”
AMETEK Land has approved service centres and partners working globally to maintain and calibrate AMETEK Land thermometers. By using these centres, manufacturers benefit from an excellent value for money, preventative maintenance, and traceable calibration, leading to a higher quality of product and reduced costs.
