Tamtron (Tamtron’s Lahti unit, formerly known as Lahti Precision) and Orion Finland have cooperated for many years. The companies started working on a contractual basis at the beginning of 2006.
“Tamtron is an important partner for Orion. Tamtron has been supplying us with various weighing solutions and FINAS-accredited calibration services for years and has proven to be a good player in the challenging environment of the pharmaceutical industry, thanks to its reliability and flexibility. The accredited calibration status is also an added value for us,” says Tapio Järnefelt, Calibration Manager of metrology at Orion.
Expert calibration service is vital for the pharmaceutical industry
Calibration is an essential element of measurement management, which can demonstrate the accuracy and traceability of measurements. The functionality of the scales used in the pharmaceutical industry’s production process significantly impacts product quality, so regular verification of the scales’ functionality is essential.
Tamtron is an accredited* K019 calibration laboratory so that customers can be assured of a reliable and professional calibration service. The certificate provides accurate information on traceability, measurement uncertainty and deviation of the balance without needing additional certificates of traceability or reliability.
*Details of our activities within the accredited scope of competence can be found on the FINAS website.
Tamtron acquired Lahti Precision’s business in 2023 and will continue to operate under the Tamtron brand.
