Q: Why Calibrate?
A: Calibration is strongly recommended to ensure your testing equipment is operating according to manufacturer specifications, providing you accurate, reliable measurements. A number of factors can lead to an instrument requiring calibration, even when brand new, which is why Kingsway includes Calibration Certificates free of charge or at a discounted rate on nearly all new equipment sales. Kingsway offers NIST Traceable Calibrations with Data from our ISO9001 Certified Calibration Lab.
