Tearing down an engine to find a problem when it fails an end-of-line test is costly and time-consuming. It’s much better to identify a quality issue upstream on the production line where it occurs. Learn how an automaker used digital process signatures to adjust their fuel rail insertion parameters to catch faulty insertions before they reach the end of the line.

A chief goal when it comes to optimizing any leak test is to ensure if the cycle time of the test can keep up with the pace of production. One factor in optimizing the test so that it can cycle as many parts as quickly as possible with an acceptable range of repeatability and reliability is test pressure. Consider the following factors when identifying proper test pressure for your leak test.

Many manufacturers face the costly problem of a lagging leak test cycle time. With constant pressures on production, line managers have no choice but to run parallel test stations to maintain production quotas. More often than not, the answer is simple—use your leak test data. Here’s how one customer did it.
