SMART FE & FI Quick Connectors Drive Efficiency & Quality in Leak Testing
Minneapolis, MN—January 17, 2018—FasTest, Inc. introduces the latest generation of its Connection Verification TM technology for the industry leading FE Series and FI Series test connection tools for leak testing. SMART FE and FI test connectors utilize sensors to monitor connection status and automatically signal to operators, through LED lights, when a successful connection has been made. By verifying the connections prior to starting a leak test, operators are able to eliminate waste caused by false failures and ensure quality throughout the leak testing process. The newest generation of SMART FE and FI connectors also allows customers to choose between three different output options – NPN, PNP and Analog – for seamless integration into their automated, semi-automated or manual leak test processes
Connection Verification is the most recent of many FasTest innovations targeting the Industry 4.0 movement in manufacturing. “There has been a major shift towards Industry 4.0 practices in leak testing, and manufacturers are beginning to gather data to drive improvements throughout their manufacturing processes,” said Dustin Sirny, Director of Advanced Technologies & Markets. “Leak testing is a critical part of the manufacturing process that essentially verifies the manufactured product meets the required quality standards; being able to collect data at that stage in the process is incredibly valuable to ensure repeatability and consistency.” FasTest’s Connection Verification technology allows process engineers and managers to lower cost of quality and facilitate lean practices throughout the leak testing process. “We are very excited about our Connection Verification™ feature and look forward to more Industry 4.0-related product launches in the near future,” Sirny says.
