In the business world of today, keeping costs down and profits up, is the name of the game, in order to remain competitive and current. Metrology should never be overlooked as one of your company’s major assets, and should not be considered an overhead, in the strict sense of the word. In any part of business, correct and precise measurement is the difference between being cost effective and going out of business. Metrology allows us to ensure that rejections or inferior products are minimised, and it helps reduce the overall operating costs.
It’s All About The Measurement.
Any decisions that are taken during day to day transactions, whether it’s in finance or in human resources, are all based on some type of measurement. Metrology is a measurement science and one in which we use the latest measurement technology. It is an important asset in business, but it should be used at the design stage of the process, and not only as a tool of quality control. Proper measurement should be used at the point of needs analysis and not only as a support function.
Get It Right.
In any business, getting the product made right is paramount, and one major issue is the increase in rejecting products, that just don’t meet specifications. However, this can be controlled by measuring properly at the production phase. Many companies, however, permit variations of products up to a certain limit and this, in itself encourages unnecessary bad quality items. If measurement processes are properly put in place, then this will lead to a reduction in costs and improved productivity.
Correct Measuring Devices.
It is important therefore to have true measuring devices used for bore gauging, levelling, thread measurement and optical measuring instruments and these are critical to any company. All measuring devices have different calibrations depending on the accuracy required and if used correctly, can reduce production time and thus save your company money. If you are creating proper measurement processes and are using the right equipment for the job, then you will experience lower costs, better products or services and higher customer satisfaction.
Where To Look.
Finding a company who can provide high quality precision measuring equipment in the UK is achievable if you look. There are a number of companies with excellent reputations that provide great products and a great quality service. Some of these companies have been in business for over one hundred years, and have been making and supplying precision measuring equipment for that duration.
