Winder Electrical is delighted to announce that its new testing facility is now fully operational. Representing a significant investment of around £250k, the testing facility will help to improve the company’s workflow, reducing reliance on third party partners. It will also ensure that Winder Electrical’s stringent quality procedures are represented throughout the whole manufacturing and test process.
The new facility enables Winder Electrical to undertake full load tests on all of its transformers. Winder Electrical has also invested in new instrumentation equipment alongside its new testing facility. This incorporates a power analyser, resistance bridges and partial discharge equipment. This provides detailed information on the performance of the transformers on test, and identifies any potential problems before they could cause damage.
This new development also means that Winder Electrical is ideally placed to deliver an enhanced service to its customers who are increasingly looking at refurbishment initiatives, as general manager Paul Matthews explains.
“Due to the current market conditions we are increasingly being asked to quote for refurbishment projects to extend the life of customers’ present equipment, and whilst this is an area that we already have a well established reputation for, having our own testing facility means that we can react rapidly when our customers require it.”
