Manufacturing, Testing and Certification Support

Manufacturing Support

With proven expertise and experience across multiple sectors, our engineers and metallurgists will bring new perspectives on production processes, facilities, costs and success/failure rates

  • Highly experienced experts on hand for advice and support
  • Review and support improvements in production capability, facilities and equipment
  • Advice on best practice for prototype and serial production
  • Onsite due diligence on suppliers to ensure quality target compliance
  • Advice on selection of materials and manufacturing/finishing processes
  • Assess effects of manufacturing variability on product durability
  • Documentation for improvements in QA processes, assembly and tooling design

 

Case study in Manufacturing Process

Requirement: review, audit and gap analysis for prototype gearbox

Services provided: examining the manufacturing process (what went right/what didn't) to identify issues, audit to ensure compliance with QA plan and verify specification, capability review, gap analysis of 'what's missing and what's required', with recommendations made on improvements and cost avoidance activity.

Testing and Certification Support

Minimise development testing time and costs: we offer proven expertise in test rig design combined with simulation and analysis to ensure the most representative procedures and equipment

 

  • Informed advice across all testing procedures and test rig design
  • Creating specifications and procedures for evaluation tests and instrumentation
  • Install and commission instrumentation of drivetrain test systems
  • Test rig design for components and complete drivetrains
  • Validation using measured test data of simulation results
  • Onsite support for completing all testing requirements
  • Supplier audits, training and certification

 

Case study in Testing Support

Requirement: bearing test rig development

Services provided: test rig design for large size bearings, simulating behavior in turbine operation, study skidding characteristics of High-Speed Stage (HSS) bearings and monitor bearing degradation using vibration and temperature measurements. Results from the rig were successfully applied in R&D activities to assess influences on bearing performance.

As you would expect, we work with the most respected certification bodies around the world, including DNV GL, TÜV SÜD , and DEWI-OCC. Romax Technology is recognised by DNV GL as the first company in the world to achieve 35 Gearbox designs for wind turbines with A-Design Certificates.
