There are some instances where an acceptable leak rate is so small as to be practically zero. Few air leak test methods, such as pressure decay, have the necessary detection range. These situations call for a trace gas-based test method. Learn more in this article in Quality Magazine, written by Cincinnati Test Systems' Systems Engineer, Peter Bonyhati.
Helium leak testing is one of the oldest and most developed members of the family of trace-gas-based leak testing methods. This article in Quality Magazine by Cincinnati Test Systems' systems engineer, Peter Bonyhati, provides an overview of uses and benefits of the various trace gas methods; helium and its alternatives.
In this article, Sciemetric's Rob Plumridge identifies the factors that companies can use to determine how to test for quality flaws in lithium-ion battery enclosures.
Sciemetric CEO Nathan Sheaff talks to the editors of Smart Industry about how digital transformation and big data analysis have converged to create a new generation of intelligent leak test systems that provide manufacturers with the reliability and the repeatability to achieve a higher standard of production quality.
A poor seal between the part to be tested and the leak test station can skew test results, allowing faulty parts to pass and perfectly good ones to be failed. In this feature published by Automation.com, Sciemetric leak test specialist Robert Plumridge explores how quality engineers can address the common issues with achieving a consistently reliable seal to ensure a reliable test.
Through the adoption of new leak testing approaches that provide comprehensive data about the entire leak test cycle, manufacturers can get more out of their leak test. Use of process signature technology that provides comprehensive data about the leak test offers manufacturers significant benefits that impact the bottom line. Investment in modern leak test technology delivers a quick ROI, supports compliance initiatives, improves productivity and ultimately, improves product quality.
Richard Brine, Sciemetric’s CTO, talks to the editors of New Equipment Digest about the 3520 Series Leak Test and how its use of smart sensors, precision electronics and digital process signature analysis delivers a new level of repeatability and reliability to the often frustrating process of leak testing.
In this feature with Quality Magazine, Rob Plumridge, Sciemetric leak application engineer, discusses how to tackle the first “R” of Gage R&R for leak testing – repeatability. By focusing on repeatability first (before the other “R” – reproducibility), manufacturers can be certain they have addressed all the controllable variables that can impact the leak test, regardless of the equipment.
Sciemetric’s sigPOD is featured by the editors of Assembly Magazine as part of a roundup on the latest leak test systems on the market from a number of competing vendors.
CTS, Sciemetric and innomatec have teamed up to offer the Indian manufacturing industry the broadest leak test and Industry 4.0 portfolio on the market. Learn more about the benefits this poses for manufacturing companies in India in this article for Industrial Product Review Magazine featuring Shankar Krishnamurthy, Vice-President and General Manager, Asia-Pacific operations.
