Maintenance and Calibration Service
Gibitre Instruments provides maintenance and calibration service for all instruments installed. Calibration is carried out using reference instruments with traceability to primary standards by Gibitre



Characteristics of the Service 
Gibitre Instruments provides maintenance and calibration services for all the instruments produced.
The services offered have been studied and is continuously improved in order to meet the highest requirements of the customers referring to the reliability of the measures and calibration documentation.
The service is coordinated directly from the Gibitre office for most European countries or is provided by a Gibitre agency through technicians directly trained and qualified by Gibitre.

Programmed Maintenance and Calibration Service 
The service is offered in the form of an annual Maintenance Contract and includes:
- the cost for the maintenance and calibration of each Gibitre instrument owned by the customer
- the cost for the transfer of the technician that is evaluated based on the distance, the number of operations scheduled in the year and the estimated work time for the provision of the service
- activation of the Remote Assistance service for the duration of the maintenance contract (for instruments controlled via PC)
- optional software update services
The number of annual maintenance / calibration for each instrument and the timing of execution of the activities are defined according to customer needs.
The underwriters of a Maintenance Contract are entitled to discounted rates for any extra-contract repair activities and for the purchase of spare parts

Repair service 
The repair service has been optimized in order to minimize the time to resolve malfunctions, to minimize repair costs and to provide the customer with complete and transparent information regarding timing and costs.
Repair interventions are carried out according to the following methods:
- A diagnosis of the problem is performed using the Remote Assistance Service
- An offer is formulated in which the estimated costs for the spare parts and the hourly cost for the intervention of the technician are quantified
- Upon receipt of the order, the activity of a technician is immediately scheduled
- The final cost for the activity is calculated after intervention according to the real time needed for the activity and the spare parts actually replaced.



Calibration of the instruments 
The calibration of the instruments is carried out according to the requirements of the international reference standards.
The list of calibration operations that are performed for each type of instrument are specified in the offer of the Calibration Contract and are described in detail below.
The procedure for the performace and the reference instruments for the execution of each specific calibration phase are described in the Calibration Report.
The standard calibration procedure can be modified to meet specific customer requirements. Specific needs must be agreed when issuing the Calibration Contract.

Reference instruments used for the calibrations 
Gibitre Instruments owns all the Reference Instruments directly calibrated by accredited laboratories for each type of size for which it provides calibration services.
The company Reference Instruments are stored in Gibitre Metrological room with controlled temperature and humidity conditions.
Every technician authorized by Gibitre to perform the calibration has at his disposal a complete set of Reference Instruments and templates that allows to perform all the calibration operations required by the Gibitre procedures.
Each instrument used by the technicians is subjected to periodic calibration. The identification label of the instrument identifies it unambiguously and returns the calibration date.
All the calibration reports produced show the complete list of primary and secondary instruments used to guarantee the traceability of the measurements
For each instrument on the list, the relative Calibration Certificate can be easily downloaded from the Gibitre website.
The measurement uncertainty related to each calibration made is calculated considering the uncertanty of the instrument / s used, the dispersion of the results, the resolution of the instrument under calibration.

Habilitation of Gibitre technicians 
Gibitre Instruments scrupulously follows the training of the technicians who carry out the calibrations through training and coaching activities with expert technicians.
The method used for the assignment of the calibration to the technicians includes the automatic verification of the technician's qualification for the execution of a specific activity.
The link in the Calibration Report permits to download from Gibitre web site the Report with the habilitattion of the technician who performed the calibration.
