Two-Station VICATS-LTS-PLC-Custom - Exhaust Manifold
Custom Exhaust Manifold
This application utilizes the on-board PLC to control the machine. The test system is performing leak and flow tests simultaneously over two fixtures. This system also incorporates thread sensing presence attribute, and poke-yoke style proof pins to check for the presence of holes. The display also serves as an HMI, which shows machine status. For example, if a thread were missing, the screen would show a Thread Fault.
ViCATS-LTS Simultaneous Testing with Common Wall Leakage Detection
Two cavities need testing simultaneously, but common wall leakage needs to be detected. Through advanced techniques and custom programming, a total test time of 14 seconds and a Gage R & R of 4% is achieved.
ViCATS-LTS Instruments – Water Filter Cartridge Dial Table
A PLC controlled machine assembles and gages multiple styles of parts. The ViCATS-LTS performs a leak and flow test on each part. Part volumes range from ¼ liter to almost 3 liters, depending on part style. Total test time for largest part including leak and flow testing is 6 seconds
ViCATS-LTS Dual Station – Exhaust Manifold Leak and Flow Test Machine
Turbine Shaft Testing
Turbine shaft cross-drilled holed are simultaneously flow tested for restriction and are leak tested sequentially. The on-board PLC controls the machine while a graphical interface communicates test information to the operator.
