InterTech Design Report (DR-174)

When will the transition from Internal Combustion Engines to Electric Vehicles Be Completed?
And, what should your company do in the meantime??
Electric vehicles have indeed moved from drawing boards to reality. However, a survey of the cars on America’s highways confirms that Internal Combustion Engines (ICE) still account for most vehicles on the roads. When there are ubiquitous charging stations that can fully re-charge vehicles in mere minutes that ratio of ICE to EV will likely flip.

InterTech Solution & Technology
InterTech Development Company’s deep bench of test engineering talent – arguably the most experienced test engineering specialists in the world – is now working closely with global Tier 1 and Tier 2 suppliers to the automotive/commercial vehicle ICE industry to find simpler and more efficient solutions for production testing that meet the needs of this moment in the industry. InterTech’s fifty years of developing efficient solutions for production testing in the automotive industry and beyond translates into quick alternatives for lower cost solutions – both in terms of superior testing methods and patented technology that will lower testing costs.

InterTech Software Capabilities (DR-173)

Posted by:

When you bring people, processes, and technology together to manage quality, you collect more than just data. You collect prescriptive insights on how to improve quality.
When an organization’s quality tools and data are completely unified, the underlying intelligence becomes a powerful tool, that can be seamless used by all levels of the organization to reveal its true value. Many items can be classified as data. Information is differentiated from data in that it is useful – often in the form of organized or structured data. Knowledge, on the other hand, is actionable information. Knowledge and wisdom refers to evaluated understanding or an appreciation of WHY and leads to action.

InterTech Software Capabilities
Integrate with many QA Quality Control software solutions on the market.
21 CFR Part 11 compliance.
40 million test record database.
Integrated GR&R software.
Can be used with statistical process control applications.
Helps users and managers dig into root cause, draw comparisons, and spot emerging trends.
Ability to integrate with various smart industrial equipment.
Easy to use and implement.
Quality data is stored in a purpose-built platform, which coordinate sustainable quality management practices.

Package Integrity Testing by IDC

  • In a wide range of industries — medical, food and beverage, pharmaceutical, and more — product quality is only as good as the seal on the packaging meant to protect it.

  • InterTech M1075 Package Tester can be deployed for burst and leak audit testing of varying sizes of the entire gamut of flexible, rigid and semi-rigid sealed package designs, porous and non-porous materials.
  • All testing with the InterTech M1075 Package Tester is Compliant with: 21CFR11, ASTM F1140, ASTM F2054, ASTM F2095, and ISO 11607.

IP 67/68 Testing

Posted by:

Battery cases, sealed wearables, housings electrical housings, AV sensor enclosures and similar highly sensitive components must be protected from damage by water ingression. IP 67/68 testing assures that a part can be exposed to water at 1 meter/ 1.5 meter depth for up to 30 minutes without damage to the electronics inside the enclosure.

IP 67/68 test system design has to assure that stringently accurate test results are consistently measured with the required smallest possible Gage R&R. At the same time, variability in parts handling and positioning for testing cannot be a variable impacting testing reliability.

Less than optimal ergonomic designs of test fixtures is not only a problem for human operators, but also undermines Gage R&R by making consistent physical handling of parts difficult.

InterTech’s M1075 Mass Flow Sealed Package Leak Test System has sealed package integrity to IP 67/68 standards. Also it has built-in error-proofing in test circuit design and excellent repeatability of test results at the highest test speeds.

Plug and Play Leak Testing-Taking “User-Friendly” to the Next Level

Posted by:

Commercial vehicles, fluid power equipment, HVAC component parts and more, must meet the most stringent leak-proof standards without encumbering either product development or manufacturing lines with added costs or time requirements.

Any drag on production line efficiencies by cumbersome testing equipment requiring elaborate and complex set-up routines is particularly incompatible with creating flexible manufacturing processes.

Int

Meet the InterTech Universal Leak Tester™ — the world’s first plug and play high accuracy leak test instrument that requires no operator input for set up — fully automating the test pressure selection and optimizing the test cycle.

The InterTech Universal Leak Tester is made possible by InterTech’s new and proprietary pressure control that eliminates test pressure fluctuations combined with test algorithms that optimize fill-stabilize times.  These two innovations result in stable measurements with significantly shorter test cycles.

Electric Vehicle (EV) and Autonomous Vehicle (AV) Glossary

Posted by:

Google has become a default dictionary. But really, Google is the tool that leads to the definitions we seek; it doesn’t actually provide the definitions.

Websites such as IDC do!

We understand that keeping track of all the new terms and acronyms on specific industries can be challenging; it seems like there are new terms and abbreviations popping up every day.

We’ve put together a list of some of the more common Electric Vehicle (EV) and Autonomous Vehicle (AV) related terms that you may encounter.

See the IDC glossary in Automotive Solutions.
