Tour of SPX Transformer Solutions

This month, the ASME Milwaukee Section will tour the  SPX Transformer Solutions manufacturing facility in Waukesha.  After, we will have dinner at La Estacion.

SPX Transformer Solutions, Inc. is one of the largest U.S. manufacturers of power transformers and a valued supplier of complete transformer service solutions, components and replacement parts as well as a variety of substation-applicable training classes for all skill levels including a large number of comprehensive LTC maintenance courses.  They employ approximately 1,000 people throughout the United States and operate manufacturing facilities at their headquarters location in Waukesha, WI as well as Goldsboro, NC and Dalas, TX.

Waukesha Transformers
SPX Transformer Solutions designs, manufactures and tests a complete line of medium power self-colled transformers rated from 2 to 100 MVA with primary voltages through 345 kV.  Their large power product line includes transformers that are top rated to 1200 MVA, 345 kV.

Their modern transformer manufacturing operations utilize sophisticated computer-controlled equipment and test systems, complemented by a well-trained, experienced work force to produce high quality power transformers that meet stringent customer demands.

The Waukesha facility is over 421,000 sq. ft. and is able to manufacture transformers rated over 1000 MVA.

When you arrive at the plants main door, someone will buzz you in and escort you to the conference where a presentation will take place on the second floor of the office area to the conference room where you will learn more about SPX Transformer Solutions followed by a plant tour. 

As with any manufacturing tour, there are several safety guidelins that must always be followed.  BE SURE TO BRING CLOSED TOE/HEEL SHOES.  Safety glasses will be provided.
