Quality control is a rapidly changing business. Maximizing quality department resources and productivity can be an immense feat. It’s getting more and more expensive, consuming...even confusing. Only the right instruments, people, sources and execution will achieve maximum production yield. Connecting with an exceptional full-service partner to assist with Quality Control and metrology efforts can often mean the difference in operating proactively or reactively. FIND A FULL SERVICE PARTNER When looking for a Quality partner seek two attributes... Breadth and Trust. Simply put, the more products and services you can acquire from a single trustworthy source, the less of your own resources you’ll consume. START WITH THE BEST INSTRUMENTS It is essential to have choices when it comes to purchasing precision measuring instruments and systems. Finding a company that offers a multitude of good quality products at diverse price points means that you get the best solution without having to spend precious time sourcing. Trusting that your metrology company is not interested in selling the most expensive product, but providing the most cost effective solution for your specific need is key. Over-buying is costly, but buying a less expensive product that doesn’t get the job done is equally wasteful. Having choices is important. SEEK EXCELLENCE IN CALIBRATION Properly calibrated equipment is paramount to quality manufacturing processes. Your ideal metrology partner should have the widest possible array of superior A2LA accredited calibration capabilities. All accredited labs are not created equal. MSI-Viking Gage Labs are A2LA accredited to 17025 for hundreds of instruments, standards and systems. Our scope of both In-Lab and On-Site services covering Dimensional, Electronics, Pressure, Force, Load, Mass, Torque, Temperature, Humidity and more is a true model of Breadth. INSPECTION AND TESTING Equipment and the latest technology for some inspection processes can get quite expensive. Sometimes outsourcing makes better sense than owning. Especially where premium technology is required.

THE QUALITY KIT AND KABOODLE Finding a single, well-rounded company who offers all the products and services you need – when, how and where you need them can save your company hundreds of thousands of dollars.
