Actuator Test Stand Supports Oil & Gas Industry

Voith Digital Solutions, Inc. and Turbine Technology Services (TTS) recently joined forces to add an actuator, governor and turbomachinery test stand at the TTS facility in Houston, the hub of the U.S. oil and gas industry. Users have immediate access to Voith’s dedicated actuator team, which offers expertise and service ability. Further, since Voith actuators are often embedded in products created by other companies, the Houston location allows for direct assistance in the field.


The test stand has all the needed diagnostic and testing equipment to optimize actuators for field use. The test stand is also available for customer training, saving the expense of sending Houston-area employees across the country for instructional time.
