CALIBRATION CENTRE CUTS DOWNTIME FOR WESTERN INSTRUMENT USERS

14-06-2017

Olympus has opened a new, purpose-built calibration centre in Perth to meet increasing demand from industrial customers in the region.

Covering a broad range of industries, including mining, infrastructure, oil and gas, aviation and defence, the Perth calibration centre increases the company’s capacity and will help to reduce turnaround times.

“The key focus of the centre is to service the local WA market by reducing the time involved in calibrating equipment. The turnaround times can be quite tight but by saving the transit time and associated costs involved with sending equipment to the Melbourne facility, we can better serve the local market,” said Colm Kinsella, Senior Sales Specialist, Olympus.

While calibration is required for most testing equipment, it can be disruptive to continuing operations. This is why Olympus has invested in processes to reduce turnaround times.

“We’re investing in infrastructure and staff to support the local market and help our customers get the most out of their Olympus assets,” explained Kinsella.

Olympus instruments are used in applications ranging from weld inspection to detecting hidden cracks, voids, porosity, and other internal irregularities in metals, composites, plastics and ceramics.

Regular calibration contributes to the quality of the equipment and adds to the safety of infrastructure and facilities.
