都福精密部件启用新的创新实验室

油膜轴承和往复式压缩机部件测试设备在休斯敦有了新家

都福精密部件是旋转式和往复式机器性能关键解决方案的综合供应商,该公司已启用了其新的创新实验室,该实验室的地址为 11951 N. Spectrum Blvd, Bldg. 2, Houston, TX。

这个占地近 12,000 平方英尺的建筑将以该公司用于流体动力油膜轴承和往复式压缩机部件的测试设备为中心,并将研究和产品开发团队聚集在一起。 用于在各种润滑方案和运行条件下测试气阀和密封技术的两台压缩机已经安装,并且正在进行调试。 试验台架支持 油膜轴承材料开发 将在未来几个月内进行调试,然后对其他测试设备进行调试。

Waukesha Bearings® 和 Cook Compression® 使用部件和系统级测试设备来验证设计和分析方法,评估性能和可靠性,在实际机器条件下验证解决方案,以及开发下一代技术。 新的创新实验室拥有可实现一次在多个测试设备上工作的四个独立测试间,并且设有专门控制室,以确保设备安全运行。 其他四个房间用于检查和部件测试。 一流的设置还提供了扩展功能以及重新配置测试设备的机会,以便支持产品开发和客户测试。

在测试设备正在调试的同时,都福精密部件使用该创新实验室来支持应对 COVID-19 疫情的安全措施。 目前已将该创新实验室的办公室和公共区域作为额外的休息室空间,以帮助该公司隔壁的梨城运营部门的制造人员保持社交距离。

都福精密部件创新与营销副总裁 Jane Kober 说:“创新实验室的启用是一个令人兴奋的里程碑,其强有力地表明,都福精密部件是一家具有前瞻性的公司。 我们致力于为客户提供在今天、明天以及长久的未来实现可靠性和高效率的业经验证的解决方案。”

都福精密部件的休斯顿创新实验室破土动工

油膜轴承和往复式压缩机部件测试设备将有新家

都福精密部件是旋转式和往复式机器性能关键解决方案的综合供应商,该公司新的创新实验室于 2019 年 9 月 26 日星期四破土动工。 这个占地近 12,000 平方英尺的建筑是在该公司梨城运营部门的北面直接施工建造的,其地址为 11951 N. Spectrum Blvd., Houston, TX。

技术领先地位是都福精密部件的核心,而这项资本投资代表着其对研发的持续承诺。 这个创新实验室尤其将以用于流体动力油膜轴承和往复式压缩机部件的测试设备为中心,这些轴承和部件先前是在位于威斯康星州 Pewaukee 和田纳西州 Knoxville 的工厂生产的。

随着对设备的需求不断增长和发展,这些测试设备使 Waukesha Bearings® 和 Cook Compression® 能够验证设计和分析方法,以及在苛刻的运行条件下测试产品。 此外,他们还配备了研发工程师,以便开发不断树立行业标准的新应用解决方案。

都福精密部件总裁 Marcell Ulrichs 评论说:“都福精密部件对其长久的创新历史非常自豪,因为我们知道我们的专利、设计突破和材料进步不仅建立了我们的行业领先地位,而且还实现了客户成功。这个新的创新实验室将通过与我们客户合作,进一步支持下一代技术的开发。”

该创新实验室的能力将包括在各种负载和速度下对使用油或工艺润滑的径向和推力轴承进行性能测试;减震器设计特性描述和增强;对往复式压缩机部件的性能和加速生命周期测试;压缩机阀的流量特性描述;对包装箱泄漏的动态测试;建立极具竞争力的基准;以及先进材料开发。

都福精密部件创新实验室的奠基仪式于 9 月 26 日星期四举行。 该创新实验室计划于 2020 年第二季度竣工,随后将进行测试设备调试。

Dover Exec Dishes on New Pearland Manufacturing Plans

Molly Ryan, Reporter, Houston Business Journal

Dover Corp.’s (NYSE: DOV) energy division just broke ground on a new 150,000-square-foot manufacturing and office building in Pearland.

Frank Wierengo is president of Cook Compression, which is one of many of Dover’s businesses moving into the Pearland space. He broke down the details for us about what exactly will happen at the new location.

Illinois-based Dover operates a variety of manufacturing brands throughout the world. The company’s energy division operates numerous facilities throughout Texas, and the new Pearland space is designed to consolidate some of them at one site to increase efficiency.

Normally, the term “consolidation” in manufacturing is associated with layoffs. However, Wierengo explained this is not the case with Dover.

Dover Energy is consolidating three existing Cook Compression facilities now in Stafford, Pearland and Breckenridge, Texas; an existing Bearings Plus facility now in south Houston; and a completely new OPW Midland facility.

Cook Compression will manufacture and repair a variety of compressor components, such as valves and sealing products, at the facility. Meanwhile, at the same Pearland facility, Bearings Plus will mainly work on refurbishing bearings systems and OPW will mainly work on refurbishing and repairing valves. All three of the businesses will predominantly serve the oil and gas industry.

The new Pearland location will initially have close to 200 employees, which Wierengo said is the number of employees the separate facilities have now. However, in the future, Dover hopes to grow the Pearland operations, he said. Not only can the companies add more manufacturing shifts to increase work, but they can also expand the facility onto the 14 acres of land the facility sits on.

By having multiple businesses in one facility, Wierengo said the companies will be able to increase efficiencies by sharing shipping, receiving and material handling functions. The companies are also looking into sharing workers “to collaborate to the highest extent possible,” he added.

Dover is banking on growing the Pearland facility due to the strength of the oil and gas industry, Wierengo said.

Furthermore, for some more insight as to why Dover chose Pearland, city of Pearland documents from December reveal that the city granted a tax abatement agreement to Dover and the city approved a loan agreement between the Pearland Economic Development Corp. and Dover.
