What Does It Mean to Have Your Welding Machine Calibrated?
It means that the settings on your welding machines have been verified and that they are accurate within the acceptable tolerance.
Who Should Get Their Machines Calibrated?
♦ CWB certified companies

♦ Anyone who is concerned about the quality of their welds. Having your machines calibrated will save you from the cost of a bad weld.
How Will My Machines Be Calibrated?
Our Certified Technician comes to your location at a time that is convenient for you. He brings with him a load bank that has been certified and can be traced back to the National Institute of Standards for Canada.
The technician will use the load bank to create a constant load. He will vary the load and compare the readings between the load bank and the welding machine.
If there is a +/- 10% difference in the readings, it will be fine. Otherwise he will adjust the meter to make it accurate.
Once all the machines have been calibrated we will send you a certificate for each machine with the serial numbers to create a paper trail.
♦ We come to you. Your welding machine doesn’t have to leave the shop floor. Once it’s been calibrated, it can immediately be put back to work.
