Exciting Facility Updates at Test Devices
As the rate of jet engine part production has rapidly increased and our clients continue to forecast further growth, we’ve become a trusted spin testing & spin process provider. To keep up with rising demand and continue to offer the most cutting-edge services available, Test Devices, Inc. has completed multiple facility expansions in recent years.
So, what’s new at Test Devices, and what do our latest expansions mean for our customers?
Facility and Capability Expansion
Our latest expansion incorporates improvements in both the shipping and receiving department and the equipment build area. We’ve also recently acquired a new coordinate measuring machine (CMM)!
- Shipping and receiving — To re-engineer the flow of parts coming into and out of our building, we relocated the shipping and receiving department to the front of the building to allow for expanded storage and handling areas along with additional cranes. In addition, the new area includes both plenty of space for trucks to back-in and an adjustable loading dock, allowing our forklifts to directly unload trailers. The relocation and improvements make unloading and loading operations significantly more efficient, contributing to reductions in turn-around time of customer parts.
- New coordinate measuring machine — To support the needs of our growing forging pre-spin business, we remodeled our climate-controlled precision inspection room, expanded the Quality Inspection team, and added a new larger Zeiss CMM machine.
- Equipment build area — Because of the volume of recent spin rig orders, the equipment build & assembly area was relocated to a new section of the building. This update allows for new capabilities including improved setup and staging of the equipment builds and the ability to build three to four machines simultaneously. The improved build area also features an updated air supply and electrical supply for building and testing advanced machines.
With an eye on quality services and constant innovation across everything we do, our Test Devices, Inc. team consistently strives to provide timely and efficient services to better meet our customers’ needs.
An industry-leading provider of spin testing and balancing services, Test Devices is thrilled to announce these new facility updates, which will allow us to better serve our ever-expanding client base.
