Ron Pawulski offers a checklist of what to consider when choosing a leak test system – your acceptable level of Gage R&R (repeatability and reproducibility), the required test cycle time for your line, and the need for traceability and root cause analysis.
Collecting data isn’t the same as making effective and timely use of the data. Rob Plumridge discusses how manufacturers must invest in robust data management and analytics tools if they expect to achieve measurable gains in production quality and output.
This e-book explores the art and science of achieving a more reliable, accurate and faster leak test. We cover seven practical steps, ranging from getting station setup right, to how to effectively use data and digital process signature analysis.
We talk about how Sciemetric’s new partnership with Cincinnati Test Systems (CTS) gives manufacturers worldwide access to the combined products and expertise of three world-leading masters of leak and other in-process test solutions.
One of the most common questions about leak testing is understanding when to use pressure decay versus flow. We discuss how these two types of test differ and the instances where one is preferable to the other.
Out of all the testing stations on a production line, leak testing is the station most prone to causing bottlenecks. CEO Nathan Sheaff summarizes how manufacturers can take advantage of digital technology and advanced data analytics for more efficient, productive operations.
When you’re in the market for a new leak test system, it’s a purchase decision that could be worth hundreds of thousands, even millions, of dollars to your plant. Rob Plumridge discusses the best approach to ensure a wise choice … and your job security.
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.
A variety of factors make it difficult to simulate the exact leak conditions battery packs will experience in the field, but there are strategies to achieve an effective battery pack leak test. Here are two of the key challenges you are likely to encounter with battery pack leak testing and strategies to overcome them.
Leak testing is a quality assurance process notorious for reliability and repeatability challenges. Steve White discusses how and why Sciemetric includes a self-test function as part of its 3520 Leak Test System, to quickly diagnose any issues that may compromise reliability.
