Dover Precision Components, part of Dover, announced Oct. 11 the opening of its innovation lab in Houston.

Since the construction of the nearly 12,000-square-foot building was completed, the lab team has focused on the installation and commissioning of key test rigs for its fluid film bearings and compression products. The innovation lab has four independent test bays to allow work on multiple rigs at once, with dedicated control rooms to monitor and collect test data and help ensure the safe operation of the equipment, the company said.

Dover Precision Components said the lab was built to centralize the company’s test rigs and bring together the research and product development teams. These teams are focused on developing innovative new products and technologies to support a greener future, including the upcoming installation of a hydrogen testing facility for performance materials that are key to enabling the transition to hydrogen.

“Dover Precision Components’ investments in product development and material science have allowed us to accelerate the speed at which technologies are made available to our customers,” said Michael Corrie, Dover Precision Components vice president of advanced sealing and compression.

Texas-based Dover Precision Components, which manufactures components for rotating and reciprocating machinery, is comprised of the Waukesha Bearings, Bearings Plus, Inpro/Seal and Cook Compression brands.
