Innovation in the field of metrology and calibration

In light of scientific developments and the increasing technical demands of the market, Trescal has made innovation a priority.

Overseen by corporate technical division, innovation at Trescal is manifold and is successfully implemented thanks to innovations in measurement techniques, equipment, data management and staff training. 


Trescal develops in house and through third party research bodies R&D projects:

  • Participation in the European Metrology Research Program (EMRP) and European Metrology Program for Innovation and Research (EMPIR) (in electrical, vacuum and pressure domains) managed by EURAMET, the European Association of National Metrology Institutes.
  • Development of instrumented mechanical tools in partnership with leading industrials in the field of aeronautics.
  • Implementation and accreditation of liquid density measurement methods.
  • Design of test benches for dynamic torque measurement.
  • Development of calibration solutions for long length measurement (laser trackers).
  • Implementation and accreditation of very high voltage measurement systems.
  • Development of software systems to automate calibration operations.
  • Study and development of robotised measurement systems for mechanical and electric instruments.


Development of methodologies and tools intended to optimize the management of measurement processes and asset management

  • Implementation and management of the Trescal Master Library database.
  • Dynamic Asset Management (EMS "Equipment Management Solution").
  • Development of the OiCM methodology "optimization of the Intervals of Metrological Confirmation".
  • Creation of ADVESO, Asset management IT software for France.
  • Support for the implementation of the ISO 10012 standard.


Trescal contributes to the standardization of calibration methods and recognition through its active participation in national and international organizations (ISO, DIN, AFNOR, A2LA, UKAS, DANAK, NCSLI, CFM…):

  • General principles.
  • Calibration programs.
  • Measurement methods.
  • Standards.
  • Implementation guides.
