Yearly check by the accreditation bodies SA and RvA ensures that all of our activities that we perform as calibration laboratory and testing laboratory are accredited and traceable in accordance with SIST ISO/IEC 17025. We were also accredited in accordance with ISO/IEC 17020 as a inspection body for blood pressure metersand Proficiency testing (ILAC Guide 13).

Design, manufacture and patent procedure for the special version of hot permeameter for the measurement of magnetic materials properties at higher temperatures (above 400 °C) has been conducted. Patented instrument enables magnetic properties of the materials measurements at higher temperatures as it was prior to the patent. As a result, magnetic materials usage can be broadened to industrial and technological processes in different industries (automotive and airplane industry).
