Wilsonville company gains laser certification

The Coherent Inc. laser power and energy calibration laboratory located in Dieburg, Germany, has been added to the company’s ISO/IEC 17025:2005 certificate of accreditation.

Wilsonville-based Coherent originally became the first major commercial manufacturer of laser power and energy measurement instruments to achieve the accreditation for its Wilsonville calibration laboratory in May 2012.

The accreditation applies to the company’s pyroelectric laser energy sensors, thermopile laser power sensors and meter electronics.

ISO 17025 certification is a formal recognition that a calibration laboratory is using valid and appropriate methods and is competent to carry out specified tests or calibrations.

This certification is especially valuable to organizations in government-regulated industries such as medical, military and aerospace, where system builders must document the traceability and performance accuracy of their own products.

Additionally, this certification will often eliminate the need for customers to perform costly and time-consuming supplier auditing.
