The avantages of our all-inclusive package

You must manage the measurement instruments, as part of your quality certification, in addition to many other tasks…. Due to time constraints, you probably do not have access to the latest published standards and last practices.

Instruments management specialists and aware of all normative developments, we offer to do much more than simple traditional calibrations.

Did we already offer to you:

  • To conduct a full review of your instruments and their conditions of use to determine what really have to be done to meet the standards and your customers?
  • To let you benefit from new opportunities in terms of calibration frequency through the FD X 07-014 (2006)?
  • To establish monitoring plans allowing you to control your measurement process without the use of expensive calibrations?
  • To carry out, on your behalf, the calculation of measurement uncertainties which is more and more requested during audits?
  • To provide user training on measurement processes to improve their performance?
  • To manage all operations related to the metrological confirmation of your equipment (see ISO 10012: Measurement management systems - Requirements for measurement processes and measuring equipment 2003) - calibrations, verification and monitoring - with powerful software tools?

Deltamu, key player in revolutionizing metrology with a view to achieve Operational Excellence

Control your measurements and your budget!

  • Calibrate? Yes, but why and when?
  • Did you know that more than 97% of the measure instruments are declared conform after the calibration?
  • What if these instruments were calibrated too soon? Are you sure that the periodicity you set is the most suited?
  • Do you know the usage limit (Maximum Permissible Error) of each of your instruments?
  • Are they able, by the applicable standards, to check the tolerances that you intend for them?

Deltamu offers solutions to help you respond pragmatically to these questions.

Why optimize?

  • To reduce direct and indirect costs
  • To control measurement quality
  • To ensure that the metrology function complies with the company's applicable reference standards

Deltamu, a rational choice

  • Deltamu is behind the writing of the FD X 07-014 manual, published by AFNOR, describing the methods to follow for the optimization of calibration intervals
  • Calculation methods recognized by the ISO 10012, ISO 9001, ISO TS 16949 and ISO 13485 quality systems.
  • Deltamu was a major actor in the development of the OPPERET method, which is available in Optimu to define optimal equipment calibration intervals.

Deltamu, Smart Metrology

In 2006, the AFNOR released the FD X 07-014 standard, formalizing the methods to assess calibration intervals for gauges. Those methods had already been described in 1999 and 2001 by Deltamu during the 9th and 10th International Congresses of Metrology in Bordeaux and Saint-Louis.

Save time and peace of mind

As part of extended services, Deltamu subcontracts calibrations/verifications to a partner, which can be Cofrac-accredited if necessary, including the labelling of devices and the supply of the CC/VC.
  • Updates on our software Optimu or Optimu eService
    • Interventions are updated automatically and documents can be archived in digital format.
  • Planning and setting up of calibration/verification campaigns
    • Free yourself from constraints of response planning of your various providers, Deltamu does it for you!
  • Provision of calibration and verification certificates
  • Traceability guaranteed with national calibration standards
    • The interventions are realized by an accredited calibration laboratory network for all areas (dimensional, electrical, mass, temperature, force, pressure, …).
  • Indicators and intervention summary

New: Deltamu can ensure the instrument traceability by organizing inter-instrument comparisons (2IC).

Deltamu, essential actor in revolutionizing metrology with a view to achieve Operational Excellence

What if the VIM was wrong?: this was the point of view supported by Deltamu in 2001 during the 10th International Congress of Metrology (Saint-Louis), with an answer proposed in 2005 at the 12th International Congress of Metrology (Lyon) and a conclusion in 2013.
In that year, the French College of Metrology published the guide about modelling calibration results and provided an IT application called M-CARE. The application was developed by Deltamu under the aegis of the French College of Metrology and supported by the DGCIS (french competition, industry and services agency).

Proceedings of campaigns

These campaigns are aimed at laboratories accredited or not. For obvious confidentiality reasons, participants will remain anonymous and will be identified by a number. Deltamu takes care of the organization and appoints a coordinator for each circuit. The coordinator ensures respect of the period granted to each participant to take measurements on objects and, if necessary, inform the participants.

Note: The participants are regularly notified of the campaign status by email.

Results

Deltamu will go through the results according to the recommendations of ISO 5725. This treatment is the subject of a detailed synthesis report given to each participant. The ability of the laboratories is then evaluated on the basis of ISO Guide 43-1 and 2 and ISO 13528 (Proficiency Testing by Inter-laboratory Comparison). In this report, the results are presented in an anonymous way. The values detected as statistically doubtful (Mandel's, Cochran's and Grubbs' test) will be analyzed with the concerned participant and Deltamu. The objective is to determine the causes of the doubtful value and help to ensure the correction of it and the control of the process.
