Vision Engineering, a 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 globally recognized award of ISO 17025:2017 by UKAS Accreditation is the only mechanism that determines the technical competence and integrity of organizations offering testing and calibration services. ISO 17025:2017 not only contains requirements for the quality management system of the organization, it also includes detailed and specific technical criteria for the operation of technical service, including ensuring the competence of personnel.

The Vision Engineering 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 Surrey, UK.

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 North America, Germany, France, Mexico, Italy, Japan, China, India and Malaysia.

Vision Engineering supplies its non-contact and contact optical and digital measuring systems to a wide range of global manufacturers, including medical device, aerospace, automotive, defense and their multi-tier supply chains

Mark Curtis, Managing Director, Vision Engineering comments:

“We are delighted to be awarded the ISO standard 17025:2017 for our calibration laboratory. This is an independent and globally recognized confirmation by UKAS of the consistently high standard of competence of our testing capability and calibration laboratory.

This ISO standards confirmation is a key statement of our ability to address the requirements of our manufacturing and analytical customers across the world and provide certainty of the quality of both our calibrations, and calibrated metrology systems.”
