Increased workloads and the need for better performing tools are the leading challenges for calibration technicians, according to a recent Fluke Calibration survey. The survey also revealed a significant number of professionals are either retiring or changing professions in the next five years, reducing the number of skilled technicians in the industry.

Recognizing that laughter can be the best medicine, Fluke Calibration, a leader in precision calibration instrumentation and software, commissioned Ted Green, cartoonist and metrologist, to draw a cartoon series that satires the current climate.

Since its founding in 1948, Fluke products have set the standard for accuracy, reliability, and safety, enabling the growth and operation of industry. The company’s next-generation calibrators, released in 2022, meet the demands of modern workloads by enabling technicians to calibrate more devices with greater accuracy.
