calibration verification

Calibration, Verification of Accuracy and Adjustment… Synonyms or Differences in Terminology?

“Do I have to maintain inspection gage calibration and certification?  Why don’t they retain their calibration over time? Do I need to verify gage accuracy on a regular basis? How often? What is the difference between calibration and verification of accuracy?” These are common questions in the coatings industry.  A simple answer is that without …
