CALIBRATION & REPAIR
Griffin Incorporated has the capability to calibrate many varied tools and products. We work with machine shops, defense contractors and a host of manufacturing and service companies on a daily basis to ensure that all of their compliance and measurement needs are met. We have a large inventory of troubleshooting equipment and expert technicians that have decades of component level repair experience. We repair most major brand names like Starrett, Mitutoyo, Fluke and others. Additionally, should your equipment require repairs we do offer repair services on most of the equipment that we support. Rest assured, all equipment that you send in to us will receive a detailed repair quote prior to any repair work being done.
Typically, if a repair including parts & labor exceeds 65% of the equipment value we may recommend you replace a piece of equipment. Many of our customers have found that they can trust our judgement to the extent that they have granted us pre-approval to repair their measuring & test equipment within those guidelines. This allows for a much quicker turn time on your assets as it negates many time consuming conversations normally required to gain repair approval and the end result is that your equipment spends less time in our facility...and more in yours.
STAFFING OF INSPECTORS
We have provided staffing services for major aerospace, machining and aircraft manufacturing companies for years with a nearly 300% growth rate over the last few years. Your company can save thousands of dollars and not have all of the responsibilities that come with finding, training and employing calibration technicians.
You can now procure trained personnel to provide calibration services and inspection services on a part time or full time basis as your needs dictate. Our people can calibrate and repair some or all of your equipment internally and outsource the balance to our lab or to the appropriate source.
The end result is that your internal and external costs will both likely be reduced. Internal costs can be reduced because our people can perform some maintenance and light repairs on site and have the support of our entire staff when they need it. External costs can be lowered because we not only charge less than our competition but also because we will do what it takes to work with your calibration and purchasing people to optimize your intervals and calibration spending.
Training is something that almost any organization can benefit from. When provided by someone that has the ability to accurately assess your specific needs and get a feel for the abilities of the person(s) in training, it can be quite cost effective. In many instances companies have a need for calibration and repair of their measuring and test equipment. They may even have a competent staff of calibration technicians and want to add to or improve the capabilities of those people. It may be that the quality manager, technicians or inspection people require a little polishing.
We have trained a variety of people ranging in experience from novice to metrology engineers in a cost effective and prompt manner. This training may be anything from basic metrology concepts to in-depth training on a specific measurement process or even instrument repair techniques. We have provided calibration related training to the airline industry, aircraft manufacturers, manufacturing and quality organizations, aerospace industry leaders and to numerous commercial calibration laboratories.
