Analysis and testing

We put at your disposal a highly qualified human team, which added to the capabilities of our laboratory allows us to test, certify or validate materials, components, systems or products.

ITA’s laboratories are accredited by ENAC


To calibrate a measuring equipment in the laboratory, we compare it with other more precise equipment called a standard, to estimate its accuracy (error) and precision (uncertainty), or in other words, to determine its measurement performance.

Legal metrology

ITAINNOVA is a Control Body accredited by ENAC with accreditation No. 411/EI712 according to the criteria included in the NE-EN ISO/IEC 17020 Standard and in Article 58 of R.D. 244/2016, for the performance of State Metrological Control activities: in-service instrumentation phase.


Our laboratories are equipped with advanced and unique equipment for testing in most industrial sectors. We can perform the verification of materials, components and products through the different tests performed at the institute.

Analysis and simulations

ITAinnova’s simulation tools have as fundamental objectives the functional evaluation, durability and long term behavior of the different parts that compose a product.

Technical assistance

We advise on failure analysis of components or production systems, design of mechanical or electrical systems, electromagnetic compatibility problems, product certification or interpretation of standards, etc.
