To increase throughput, a twin station machine is available allowing a single operator to work alternately between the two fixtures, or two operators working independently on each fixture.
The Series 40 Twin Station machine incorporates a Nolek S9 leak test instrument which allows a dedicated leak test valve module per test fixture with a single panel mounted display unit.
This machine is for testing of pressed steel oil sumps which were tested by a single operator at a rate in excess of 1 every 30 seconds. The fully automatic sealing fixtures include a pass marker unit. The leak test was performed at a differential pressure of 1 bar with maximum leak rate of 200mm3/sec.
The unit incorporates:
- Standard aluminium extrusion bench
- Universal fixture areas
- Light guard access to each station
- Fully automatic sealing fixture
- PLC control system
- Built in Leak Test Instrument
- Standard operator interface panel
