Nordhausen / Shanghai, 14. September 2016 | Maximator GmbH, based in Nordhausen/Thuringia and one of the leading suppliers in the high-pressure technology sector, opened its new testing service centre in Shanghai, China's most important industrial city, as part of a major two-day event followed by a technology forum.
It is a well-equipped test centre for high-pressure tests on its customers' technical equipment, the simultaneous aim of which is to link the globally operating Maximator Group even more closely to the Asian market.
To date, Maximator GmbH has maintained two such test laboratories, one in Germany and the other in the USA. The pressure fatigue, pressure and burst pressure tests and autofrettage services performed there are also part of the wide range of services offered by the new Maximator customer centre (MCC) in Shanghai. One of the options that it offers customers is to have the performance parameters and quality characteristics of their products determined by relevant high-pressure tests under real conditions as early as the prototype stage.
The new Maximator service centre was inaugurated as part of a two-day opening ceremony, attended by more than 60 representatives from over 30 companies. Delegates from Maximator organizations in Singapore, Japan and Korea were also present. In the presence of Yu Hongdong, Managing Director of Maximator Shanghai, and David Choo, Head of Maximator Far East (Singapore), the Managing Director of Maximator, Henning Willig, underlined the rapid positive development of Maximator's Chinese branch since its formation in December 2004.
He said that, for the company, the new MCC constituted "a further important step in establishing even closer ties with our Asian customers and providing them with long-term support through our outstanding services". According to MCC Managing Director Daniel Chen, the range of testing services of the new service centre includes fatigue impulse pressure tests up to 5,000 bar at 25 Hz, pressure and burst pressure tests up to 15,000 bar, an autofrettage service up to 15,000 bar and tests of automotive and plastic components subjected to temperature effects. Currently Maximator Shanghai employs more than 110 employees and branch offices were maintained in five other Chinese cities.
As part of the technology forum, the effects of autofrettage on the durability of pressurized components from the automotive sector, in particular, were analyzed together with the co-organizers of the event, Salzgitter Mannesmann Precision GmbH, TÜV Nord Greater China and Bosch. In this context, participants exchanged the latest scientific and practical knowledge.
