NCSL International Workshop & Symposium  - Metrology's Impact on Global TradeBagan, located 10 minutes west of Fort Wayne, IN exhibits at the NCSL International Workshop & Symposium, Metrology's Impact on Global Trade

Booth #118 in San Antonio Convention Center, San Antonio, TX

Trade is the lifeblood of today's global economy and all trade requires agreement between sellers and buyers. Metrology, measurement, is at the core of all trade. It is the trust and assurance informed by accurate measurement that enables trade to occur, whether that trade is in vast quantities of sophisticated manufactured items between international corporations in different parts of the world, or between an individual and his or her butcher for a steak for the evening's dinner.

When it comes to global trade, it is the relatively recent development and broad acceptance of an integrated and effective global measurement system, starting with the oversight of the International Committee for Weights and Measures (CIPM) and working its way down eventually to manufacturing, service, regulatory and governance organizations wherever in the world they may be, that enables today's vast flow of goods and services to take place. Competent measurement programs assure that parts and services provided in one geographic location, by one or various suppliers will in concert result, in another part of the world entirely, in products and services that fit together and/or work as intended by their designers.

2009 edition of NIST Special Publication 960-12:
"Stopwatch and Timer Calibrations"

This guide assists the working metrologist or calibration professional by describing the types of stopwatches and timers that require calibration, the specifications and tolerances of these devices, the methods used to calibrate them, and the estimated measurement uncertainties for each calibration method. It also discusses the process of establishing measurement traceability back to national and international standards.

New Mobile Calibration Labs added to the Fleet

In addition to sending your equipment to our Fort Wayne calibration laboratory,
we can send our calibration laboratory to you!

To better serve our customers, Bagan has added specially designed mobile calibration laboratories to our nationwide fleet of on-site service vehicles.

These vehicles are self-contained laboratories which house our calibration standards and maintain the appropriate laboratory environment to perform routine DC / Low Frequency, RF, Temperature, and limited Mechanical / Dimensional calibrations.

Our mobile calibration laboratories may be used when customers do not have room to accomodate or a suitable environment to perform calibrations. To determine the right on-site calibration service for your needs, contact us!

Booth #125 in Saint Paul RiverCentre, Saint Paul, Minnesota.

Every product and service that consumers use is highly dependent on metrology for a variety of reasons. From the fit and finish of our vehicles to weights and volumes of products purchased in the grocery and meat market, we are impacted at every level.

Metrology laboratories calibrate equipment used to determine whether component parts will be compatible whether those parts are used in a consumer product or in a commercial airliner. Metrology programs ensure that we receive the correct amount of gasoline when we visit the pump as well as ensuring the butcher’s scale is accurate.

A sound and cohesive metrology and quality system, from the National Metrology Institute to the end consumer affects the quality of life for everyone.

Richard J. Bagan, Inc. hosts the NCSLI MidWestern US Regional Conference and Quametec measurement uncertainty training

From NCSLI Newsletter — April 2007 Issue:
Thity-five eager-to-learn metrologists were in attendance for the Winter meeting of the Northern Indiana Section of NCSLI held on December 11, 2006. Richard J. Bagan, Inc. hosted the meeting in their multi-media training room, located in Columbia City, IN. Doug Leonard, Northern Indiana Section Coordinator, kicked off the meeting by welcoming all the attendees and introducing the (at that time) President of NCSLI, Jeff Gust.

Jeff gave all an update on the latest board of directors meeting including highlights from the last NCSLI conference in Nashville. Jeff informed us on the last board of director's activities including the release of Measure Magazine, the new e-store, and World Metrology Day. Jeff provided an informational overview of the output from the NCSLI committees and some of the committee's future goals. He ended with answers to questions from the group about NCSLI activities and how membership has benefited him personally in his professional growth.

Next, Doug Leonard provided an overview on what assessors look for when reviewing uncertainty budgets. The presentation described how assessors review uncertainties as represented on the scope of accreditation, best measurement capability (BMC) and the uncertainties for each test and calibration as reported on certificates and test reports. Details were given on the elements of an uncertainty budget and how these elements can be aligned into a "Type A" world and "Type B" world using the fishbone diagram as provided in root cause analysis.

Jim Jenkins presented an overview of Uncertainty Management using software as a tool for computing an uncertainty budget. Jim presented his "Basic 5" items to consider for any uncertainty budget: calibration uncertainty, allowable deviation and/or drift, resolution, repeatability/reproducibility, and environmental influences. He illustrated the ease of utilizing resources provided to compute the calculations and answered many questions in regards to the elements of uncertainty.

Dick Bagan then offered some of the history of Richard J. Bagan, Inc. and provided all guests the opportunity to tour his facility and state-of-the-art laboratory. Dick showed all visitors how the development of software has helped his organization with efficiency and quality as an accredited laboratory.
