Melchers China and GMI AERO Open a Calibration Laboratory in Shanghai

The French innovator and key provider of solutions and products for advanced process control and aircraft composite structural repairs, GMI Aero, and the aviation business unit of the global company Melchers, have opened a new calibration laboratory in Shanghai. The calibration laboratory will facilitate the required annual calibration operation of the high-precision devices ANITA Hot Bonders and Thermography Inspection Controllers.

Calibration is defined as “the comparison of measurement values delivered by a device under test, with those of a calibration standard of known accuracy”. Such operation has to be regularly repeated to ensure the good performance of the concerned device.

The calibration laboratory will be hosted and operated by Melchers China, the Representative of GMI Aero in China. All the quality-related provisions will be ensured by GMI Aero, which, being the OEM of the devices, will remain the responsible entity for quality assurance procedures and issue of the Calibration Certificates, according to the latest EASA requirements.

All incoming equipment will also be subject to cleaning and small maintenance works, while all latest software upgrades will be uploaded at no additional cost to the end-user.

We underline that no calibration or calibration by non-authorized centers may lead to technical discrepancies and subsequent problems related to the sound operation of the equipment, which may result in safety hazards and/or damage of aircraft parts.

GMI Aero and Melchers China, therefore, remain confident that the numerous GMI equipment end-users will welcome this new calibration laboratory in China.
