Fox Valley Metrology and Twin Pines Metrology, divisions of WESTport Corporation are able to offer its customers complete repair and calibration services on nearly all makes and models of electronic test and measurement equipment. Most calibration services can be performed in our lab or at your facility. We allocate personnel to handle solely equipment repairs and calibration. This provides us with the ability to lower our costs while generating faster turnaround time on our services. Our primary ISO/IEC 17025 standards laboratory provides the resources you need for the traceability for all of your lab standards. All repairs are quoted prior to completion, and will not exceed 50% of the cost of a replacement.
All technicians are supplied with laptop computers and portable printers for any on site requests. Also, technicians are equipped with DoDMIDAS and GIDEP CD-ROMS, which contain all military and some civilian calibration procedures. This enables the customer to receive accurate certifications and calibration labels at the time the job is completed. Most of Fox Valley Metrology's electronic calibration technicians have been trained in the military with years of extensive calibration and repair experience.
Field Service Calibration
FVM and Twin Pines Metrology, a division of WESTport Corporation has an extensive fleet of fully-equipped service vehicles and offers you the advantage of onsite calibration. This reduces any potential downtime at your facility by not having to send your gages or tools out for calibration or repair. Our technicians come fully equipped with laptop computers and printers. This allows us to print out your certifications at the time of calibration rather than mailing them at a later date as is the standard practice of most calibration laboratories.
Customers sometimes have the misconception that onsite calibration service will cost more than regular “ship-in” service. Time consuming packaging and freight cost can offset the cost of traveling to your facility. Our team of experienced quote specialists will provide a comprehensive price quote for any onsite calibration work to be preformed in North America.
