FARO® Knowledge Base

Calibration Certificates for the FaroArm

Overview

Every FaroArm® is delivered with a calibration certificate as courtesy to show that the individual ball diameters were inspected and certified to eliminate the need for probe diameter qualification. This article will breakdown a certificate and provide an understanding of how to read it and what it means to you.

After device delivery, regularly scheduled probe certification should be completed by a qualified local service provider or a company's internal certification service to satisfy quality requirements.
 

Certificate Examples

Certificate Anatomy

certificate_serial.PNG

  • Model: FaroArm model.
  • Serial #: FaroArm's unique identification number.
  • Certification Date: When certification was issued.
  • Calibration Standard: Standard used to calibrate the FaroArm.
  • Certificate #: Certification number issued to the FaroArm. 
     

Measurement Standards Traceability Chart


Primarily used as an auditing reference and your source of confidence in that your FaroArm will meet quality standards. 

measurement_st.png

  1. Artifact used: Certified internal artifact used in the calibration process.

  2. Asset number: Number used to serialize artifacts for internal reference and traceability.
  3. Calibration due date: Due date for each certified artifact. Ensures at the date of certification, artifacts used in calibration were within compliance. 

    Note: This date does not represent your FaroArm's due date for calibration recertification. It applies only to the artifact's calibration, not your device.
     
  4. SI Traceability number: Referencing number to show that FARO® has used calibrated artifacts with traceability to the International System of Units.

Calibration Results Chart

A summary of the individual tests performed and the results. The (1) column are tests performed on your FaroArm during calibration.

calibration_results2.PNG

  1. Test Performed: Calibration test performed, per 10360-12 standard. Use the "ISO 10360-12 Standard" section below to get an idea of what each test entails.
    • 3 Single Point Articulation Tests (SPAT) 
    • Psize
    • PForm
    • LDia
    • EUni
  2. Specification: Our standard for the model.
  3. Measurement: Result (Will be the largest error during testing)
  4. Result: Passed or Failed.

Instrument condition as received and outgoing

within_spec.PNG

  • New: Factory-grade new.
  • Within spec: Passed all testing.
  • Not within spec: Did not meet FARO standard during testing, specific to your device.
  • Inoperable: Testing was not able to be completed. Device may not be fully functioning.

 

ISO 10360-12 Standard

This standard requires four probing and one distance test. The test's results are an error and each test has a Maximum Permissible Error (MPE).
