InterTech Development Company Showcases M1075 Leak Tester – Assembly Expo Oct 22 – 24 2019 – Booth No. 700

Posted by:

InterTech Development Company will be showcasing latest generation leak test technology in Assembly Booth #700 — InterTech M1075 Leak Tester using InterTech’s patented mass flow sensor technology that can speed leak testing up to 30%.   Unlike earlier generation leak testers, the competitively priced M1075 uses a small mass sensor with a much faster reaction and recovery time back to zero, and requiring a much lower pressure drop across the sensor in order to obtain a measurable flow.

State of Art InterTech Test Instruments for Medical Device Testing

Posted by:

  • State-of-the-art Sealed Package Test Systems, especially geared for testing products in aseptic conditions- with an InterTech M1075Y-07y mass flow leak tester with integrated machine control.
  • Dimensional Gages Combined with Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerance (GD&T) Analysis Software for In-line Functional Testing of medical implants.
  • InterTech MED75 Leak and Flow Test Instrument simulates the pressure of fluids introduced by syringe into the elastomeric balloon of an infuser. The test instrument ensures that the infuser doesn’t leak back out through the injection site. In addition, the flow of medicine out of the infuser needs to be within a tightly controlled tolerance.
  • EtherNet/IP enabled InterTech MED75 dual function leak and flow test instruments that enable fast testing within ISO 13485 Requirements for Maintaining Consistent Quality Systems.
  • Low-cost sleep apnea devices quality assured with InterTech’s MED75 Universal Tester used for combinations of flow tests, blockage tests, pressure decay and mass flow leak tests. A unique test fixture that prevents seal creep and ensures consistent flow needed for reliable testing is used. A feedback loop controls flow within a tight band with flow settings programmable for flexible operation.

InterTech Highlights 2019 include: Innovation for Large Volume Part Leak Testing—InterTech Ex-Heat®

Posted by:

By reducing stabilization time —the slowest part of the leak test—on large open test volumes—InterTech helps manufacturers of parts like automotive oil pans, medical bags and more reduce testing times by as much as 25%.

The Ex-Heat ® process reduces stabilization time and variation by extracting the warm unstable air from the test part, replacing it with stable air, at the correct test pressure, and ready to be measured for the leak rate value.

Medical device assembly insights by Jacques Hoffmann in Assembly Mag August 2019

If manufacturers understand how a leak test works it will help them to design better products and achieve more realistic throughput.

Understanding how testing works will help the process. And it is recommended you work with leak test manufacturers to create a customized testing system.

Suppliers can also provide guidance on how to integrate leak and flow testers into high volume automated assembly lines.  Here again, understanding how testing works is important, many engineers underestimate the time needed.

Leak Testing Trends – New Article by IDC

Posted by:

Over the economic life of a leak tester, the upfront costs of the test instrument are a mere fraction of the overall testing costs

For a broad range of automotive, medical and other products, leak testing requirements before products are released to the marketplace have not changed. What has changed in recent years is several new technologies—some related to data handling and the Industrial Internet of Things and others relating to test techniques—that now change the calculus of determining best-match solutions for leak testing.  In this article we will do a quick review of pressure decay and mass flow leak testing methods, and then explore the new technologies impacting decisions on how to best configure leak test systems.

Key Insights include:

  • Pressure Decay Testing vs. Mass Flow Testing
  • Updates to Mass Flow Test Methods
  • Customized Sensor Technology
  • Patented Innovations for Large Part Testing
  • Methods for Early Pass/Fail
  • Robotics and Calibrations
  • Harnessing IoT Benefits
