CHALLENGE

  • Leak test reservoir with built-in Schrader valve in fast cycle time
  • Perform ink marking and print bar code label on "pass" parts
  • Hard tooling to interface and seal with high tolerances on test part

SOLUTION 

  • Helium hard vacuum leak test method
  • Operator loaded test chamber with hard tooling that opens valve upon sealing
  • Innovative ink marking system to mark passing parts while in the vacuum chamber
  • Integrated Zebra label printer

SPECIFICATIONS

  • Test Method:  Helium hard vacuum
  • Leak rate:  1 x 10-5 atmcc/sec helium
  • Throughput:  Approximately 1 parts every 60 seconds
