Vision Engineering, the 61 year-old British leading designer and manufacturer of high-quality visual measurement and inspection technologies, has attained ISO 17025:2017 accreditation from UKAS and is now a UKAS accredited calibration laboratory No. 7706.
The award of ISO 17025:2017 by UKAS Accreditation, which is globally recognised, is the only mechanism that determines the technical competence and integrity of organisations offering testing and calibration services. ISO 17025:2017 not only contains requirements for the quality management system of the organisation but also includes detailed and specific technical criteria for the operation of the technical service, including ensuring the competence of personnel.
Vision Engineering’s temperature-controlled calibration laboratory is now ISO17025:2017 certified for the calibration of measurement stages, instrumentation and artefacts performed at Vision’s high-tech manufacturing complex in Woking, Surrey.
The full-service modern manufacturing facility includes design, machine shops, paint shop, clean room and assembly. It is replicated in the USA, with a wholly owned full-service manufacturing facility in Connecticut. Measurement calibration and technical support is provided through a network of Vision Engineering subsidiaries in Germany, France, Italy, Japan, China, India and Malaysia
