Royal Power Solutions opened the Henrik Freitag Innovation Center in 2019 at our Chicago-area headquarters.
The state-of-the-art workspace and ISO/IEC 17025 accredited lab spurs collaboration and creativity among our engineering team while validating new products in development.
The 12,000 sf facility and quality control lab is located in the center of Royal’s production floor and is home to two dozen engineers who work together to share ideas. The center nurtures curiosity and allows Royal to look creatively at product design with a commercialization set of parameters, including simplicity, number of processes, alternative and reduced materials, and faster cycle times.
Our investment in world class testing equipment allows us to validate products and benchmark them against alternatives with data acceptable to OEM standards.
This equipment falls into three families of testing apparatus
T-temperature humidity chambers producing environments from -40C up to +1,250C
Thermal complex environmental chambers producing 13,000 lbf and capable of a 100-G,11-ms shock pulse with temperature cycling
Corrosion testing equipment to prove products can hold up to rain and chemical exposure including battery acids, oil and gas
