The Cross Manufacturing Company has extensive research and development facilities where products are tested and evaluated over extended periods in simulated operating conditions. Cross welcomes the opportunity to work in partnership with customers on research, development and test projects to achieve increased performance and greater efficiency at the leading edge of thermal and metallurgical technologies.
   
Cross hot test facilities for brush seals accurately recreate the operating conditions found in today's advanced gas turbines. This enables seal development and validation to be performed under true operating conditions prior to expensive engine testing.
   
The Cross designed fretting rig enables sealing rings to be cyclically abraded along the axis of the bore at preset frequencies and amplitudes. Pressurised air can be applied to accurately simulate expected operating conditions and the rig can be operated in a furnace to reproduce high temperature applications.
   
  The Cross metallurgical laboratory is a fully NADCAP approved/accredited highly capable modern facility containing a comprehensive array of state of the art test and analytical equipment. Routinely carrying out extensive material testing, analysis and research, the department is dedicated to supporting production and customer needs.
