Cardinal Scale is VCAP Certified
Cardinal’s goal is to make the very best load cells in the world, and VCAP certification helps accomplish that goal.
What does VCAP certification mean?
The Verified Conformity Assessment Program (VCAP) is a program that was developed by the National Conference on Weights and Measures to verify that load cells produced by a manufacturer meet the same environmental influence factor standards as the actual load cells evaluated under the National Type Evaluation Program. Compliance with the VCAP ensures the load cell purchaser that the load cell has been produced under an audited quality management system and has been tested to verify its compliance with the environmental requirements listed in the National Institute of Standards and Technology’s Handbook 44. Periodic third party audits confirm that the quality management system remains compliant.
“VCAP certification assures our customers that Cardinal Scale has taken the steps necessary to ensure that Cardinal load cells, like our other products, are manufactured under strict quality standards and are representative of the load cells that were evaluated under the National Type Evaluation Program,” said David Perry, president of Cardinal Scale Manufacturing Company. “VCAP certification is absolutely necessary if you’re to remain a quality motivated manufacturer.”
