Completion date: August 2013
This leak test machine was commissioned by Mahle powertrain to test an oil filter housing component to a tolerance of 140 cubic millimetres per/second at a test pressure of 700 KPA, automatically sealing-of 26 features 3 of which were hydraulically sealed. Customer also required pass mark and data-logging of the leak-test results.
This machine was commissioned for a limited product run and as so, we designed it with minimal cost & the possibility of reconfiguration and re-tooling in mind. The machine completed its product run without interruption and has since been reconfigured.
