Care of equipment
Renishaw probes and associated systems are precision tools used for obtaining precise measurements and must therefore be treated with care.
The Renishaw recommended recalibration period for MCG is 12 months.
Recalibration periods are purely a recommendation, under normal service conditions. However, there are several factors that may generate the need for more or less frequent recalibrations including:-
- Environmental conditions
- Frequency and duration of use
- Harsh treatment of the MCG system, during storage, transportation or use
- Level of accuracy required by the user
- The requirements of company QA procedures an / or national / local regulations
Ultimately it is for the user to determine the appropriate calibration period given his operational environment and performance requirements.
