Specialized testing, measurement, & metrology services

Onsite Calibration

Keep your equipment where it is and let us bring the measurement to you. In many cases, your calibration service can be carried out right there at your location. This keeps your tools with you, and keeps your down time to a minimum. When you submit your list to us for pricing, we will let you know right away if your order is suited for onsite calibration services, or if your equipment will require calibration in one of our labs instead.

In-Facility Calibration Service – Our technician comes to your location, bringing the appropriate measuring equipment (standards) and works inside your facility. This service is available at both the Richmond, BC and the Calgary, AB laboratories.

Mobile Laboratory – At Wescan Calibration in BC, we have a temperature controlled mobile laboratory. This expands the range of equipment that can be calibrated onsite to include some more temperature sensitive tools. Our technician comes to your location, collects your equipment from you and calibrates it inside the mobile lab, returning it to you upon completion.

Mobile laboratory service is not currently available at Wescan Calgary but it will be soon!

Laboratory Calibration

Sometimes, an onsite calibration service is just not the best option for your equipment. Or sometimes, you only have a few items for calibration and don’t meet the minimums for onsite service. Wescan will always work with you to try to minimize the impact of being without your equipment as much as possible.

Wescan’s facilities in British Columbia & Alberta both boast state-of-the-art, environmentally controlled testing laboratories designed with achieving the most accurate measurement for your equipment in mind.

Option One

Book Ahead! Although this is not required, it is strongly recommended, and much appreciated. We know that turn time is important to you, so when you call us to book ahead, we find the first available date, and reserve that spot for your service to begin. This helps us get your equipment back in your hands much more quickly than if you do not pre-schedule.

Option Two

Send it in! If turn time is not as much of a concern you can send it in without booking ahead. We will advise you upon receipt if there are will be any undue delays in the calibration.

Often, through a physical evaluation of the unit, and a review of any specifications or customer requirements, our technicians can find a means of testing that will accomplish your measurement needs. This evaluation process is done at no charge to you.
  • Traceability to NIST, NRC (INMS) or other National Measurement Institutes
  • Quality management system governed by ISO/IEC 17025, Z540.1, and ISO 9001 requirements & regulations.

Calibration Cycles

Calibration cycles & due dates are determined by you. Only you know how you use your equipment.

Tools that are used regularly, or that are highly accurate may require more frequent calibration. Tools that are rarely used or are less accurate may require less frequent calibration.

Your Quality System may also state required re-calibration cycles for your equipment.

Wescan defaults to a 12 month cycle if your Purchase Order does not indicate the desired re-calibration period.

90 Day Calibration Warranty

Wescan warrants all of its calibrations (measurements) for 90 days after the calibration is performed.

If your instrument is returned and you feel it is not measuring properly, please let us know! Often our technicians can help resolve any issue over the phone. If not, we will gladly evaluate the item to determine if its fault could be related to the calibration service*. Wescan will be responsible for the cost of recalibration if the problem is related to the service performed.

*Note: In most cases, the act of calibration does not require us to open, disassemble, or otherwise modify your equipment. Should any adjustment be necessary that requires our technician to open your equipment, your written authorization will be required before we can proceed.
