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.
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.
When it comes to leak, a smaller part is faster to test. But you can’t just make a part smaller – or can you? Steve White discusses ways to shorten fill time by considering test station fixturing and connections, the part’s internal geometry and supply pressure.

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.
