“One-stop shop for all your Calibration needs”

At Tra-Cal we listen to you and make every effort to provide the services you need to satisfy your business requirements. This makes Tra-Cal Lab the foremost calibration laboratory worldwide.

Lab Standards

The Metrology Lab’s policies and procedures rigorously adhere to the standards specified by ISO IEC 17025:2017. The Lab is inspected every year by ANSI-ASQ National Accreditation Board (ANAB), an authorized Asia Pacific Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation (APLAC) and International Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation (ILAC) ISO inspection company. This ensures ongoing compliance to ISO standards. An in-house auditing team continually monitors ISO compliance and conducts internal audits to document adherence to ISO standards.

Calibration Standards

During every calibration, the standards used by Tra-Cal technicians can be traced back to U.S. National Institute of Standards & Technology (NIST) to ensure traceability measurement accuracy. Equipped with state-of-the-art standards and operated by highly skilled technicians, the Metrology Lab provides calibration in accordance with original manufacturer’s specifications, using manufacturer’s procedures. The goal is to provide you with quality calibration that results in the highest possible test equipment accuracy and reliability.
