Taking Care of Accuracy

Emmanuel Christi Das, Special EditorThe word ‘calibrate’ dates back only a couple hundred years, but the concept of calibration is actually far older. Ancient Egypt and Mesopotamia had their own systems of calibration that they used in construction. Today, calibration is often used in research labs to ensure accurate data. In our modern society, it is important that the devices we use to measure the physical quantities around us are accurate. From the weather to the medical field, from the automotive industry to agriculture, obtaining accurate measurements is essential to making decisions and performing tasks. Calibration services are of utmost
importance for testing and measuring devices. Such devices need to operate with accuracy and precision.
Calibration services are used to record and rectify deviations in the performance of testing and measuring devices from their standard performance. The calibration services market is expected to witness moderate growth over the coming years. Driven by a need for precise and accurate information the calibration services industry has been expanding to encompass industries such as aerospace & defense, semiconductors, power generation, petrochemicals, water, electronics manufacturing, communication, and industrial & automotive. The calibration services market is fragmented and competitive with a large number of players. Key players in this market are General Electric (U.S.), Siemens AG (Germany), Danaher Corporation (U.S.), and Endress+Hauser (Switzerland).
