In 1938, Edelbrock started in a modest four-car repair shop in Los Angeles. Today, the Edelbrock name is known worldwide for high-quality performance automotive components.
Manufacturing a wide range of high precision, high performance engine components to meet ISO 9001 certification is a complicated and challenging business. Ensuring that high performance parts are manufactured to proper specifications in each of Edelbrock’s five divisions takes a lot of measurements.
Kevin Brewis, Edelbrock’s Calibration Technician, is responsible for ensuring that the company’s thousands of gages, fixtures, and pieces of test equipment are properly managed, tracked, and calibrated. He uses GAGEtrak Calibration Management Software from CyberMetrics to manage the thousands of calibration records generated each year.
