Hallite Seals has announced the opening of its new state-of-the-art product and material test house after breaking ground in January.
The new UK-based facility combines laboratory and product testing space previously housed in separate buildings. Constructed and equipped for a wide range of material and product characterisation, the reimagined facility drives forward the company’s capabilities and focuses on innovative growth.
“This is an incredible historical milestone for Hallite as we continue to work with customers and partners through the challenges of the pandemic,” said Andrew Iddeson, global technical director.
“In-house testing is a capability pillar for Hallite and a fundamental part of the company’s legacy. Almost all of its industry-leading products were developed and launched from the testing programme.”
Iddeson added: “The objective to have the new facility up and running by the end of the third quarter was met, thanks to the tireless, collaborative efforts of a small dedicated team of staff and vendors. “As a result, customers and partners will now benefit from greater accessibility to research and development processes created to deliver better-performing, high-quality hydraulic cylinder sealing products at the right time.”
Improved testing and analysis equipment, hardware upgrades, and enhanced data capture and backend systems will accelerate the development and availability of critical live test data, reports, and white papers that validate a sealing product design, concept, or material.
