All of our sites have ISO certification and all our labs are accredited under ISO17025 in some specific domains. Our accredited labs cover a broad spectrum of technologies such as Accelerometry, Acoustic, Climatic, Dimensional, Electricity / Magnetism, Time / Frequency, Gas Flowmeter, Liquid Flowmeter, Force, Torque, Hardness, Mass / Scale, Photometry, Pressure / Vacuum, Radiometry / Optical, Temperature, Humidity, Volume.
To be able to service and support all the above industries and application areas to the highest possible standards we constantly invest in new equipment and resources.
One of our more recent requirements was for portable surface finish equipment. For this purpose we trialled a number of products including Taylor Hobson's Surtronic 25 hand held roughness checker. This is an Instrument designed to measure the roughness of various surfaces and lends itself to a variety of applications and industries.
Richard Parker, Technical Manager of Trescal comments:
"The Surtronic 25 passed Trescal bench with ease. This is a robust product that ticked all the boxes for Trescal requirements. I was especially impressed with the additional software package for the Surtronic 25 which was very easy to use and offered a host of additional analysis and processing features"
Jamie Ross, Surtronic Range Product Manager at Taylor
"Having our products scrutinised by companies such as Trescal, leaders in their field, helps to keep us at the top of ours and maintain Taylor Hobson's reputation as world leader in metrology".
