Trescal’s largest calibration site to hold open day

Stevenage UK –Trescal, the specialist provider of global calibration and measurement solutions, is once again opening the doors of its Stevenage site, the largest of Trescal’s UK facilities and fleet operations for an open day on Wednesday 18 October 2017. The UKAS accredited laboratory is an industry leading facility, providing customers with access to a breadth of skills and accreditations including Electrical, RF & Microwave, Mechanical/Dimensional, and its latest pipette calibration offering. The Stevenage site also coordinates and manages asset management on behalf of some of Trescal’s key customers.

There will be demonstrations taking place throughout the guided tour, giving attendees the opportunity to see first-hand the calibration solutions on offer. For those visitors from the pharmaceutical industry, there will also be live demonstrations at an example pipette station, following the UKAS accreditation of the Stevenage facility’s earlier this year.

In many laboratory environments, pipettes are in constant use which can result in a multitude of problems such as corrosion and contamination. While it is important to regularly check and service pipettes, removing and sending them off-site can be difficult for many, due to their heavy reliance on the equipment. Instead, with Trescal’s onsite calibration capabilities, an engineer from the Stevenage laboratory can visit customers and calibrate the pipettes on-site, significantly reducing production downtime and disruption.

John Brooks, Branch Manager at Trescal Stevenage, comments: “Following the success and popularity of our first Stevenage open day held in June, we are opening our doors for a second time with an emphasis on providing visitors with even more insight into our extensive calibration offering across key sectors. We are looking forward to showcasing our UKAS accredited pipette station and how our experienced engineers and staff from across the Trescal network, and those based at the Stevenage site, can provide dedicated calibration solutions to match individual requirements.”
