Press Release Summary:
Employing 24 Vdc drive system, Electronic Tooling System (ETS) allows for inside- or outside-part testing of leak sealing integrity. Modular electronic sealing device can operate as stand-alone sealing system or be controlled via I/O or connected via serial, Ethernet, or DeviceNet. By varying target current, device is scalable and provides repeatable sealing force. Sealing tool locks onto media, even under power loss, increasing test safety and reliability.
Original Press Release:
New Tooling System from FasTest Delivers Electronic Actuation
FasTest Electronic Tooling System
Adjustable electronic actuation allows for inside- or outside-part testing of leak sealing integrity, as well as dependable use in industrial pick-and-place applications.
Minneapolis, MN-FasTest announces the Electronic Tooling System (ETS), a modular electronic sealing device. By varying the target current, the device is scalable, providing a repeatable sealing force-ranging from a soft touch for delicate parts to a firm grip for work holding. The ETS can operate as a stand-alone sealing system or can be controlled via I/O or connected via serial, Ethernet or DeviceNet, delivering ultimate flexibility and ease of integration.
The ETS provides a clean and reliable alternative to traditional pneumatic sealing devices, simplifying and improving leak tests in a broad range of demanding applications, such as medical, pharmaceutical, food and beverage, and industrial. Robust operation is achieved via a 24 VDC drive system, eliminating contaminants and moisture-ingress common to compressed air systems. The ETS also reduces maintenance time and costs by removing internal seals that wear and fail. Plus, the sealing tool locks onto media, even under power loss, increasing test safety and reliability.
The ETS easily integrates into most leak-test systems for manual, semi or fully automated testing. In addition to the customer-supplied leak test instrument, key components to the ETS include:
Accessories include a tool cable to power the tool, control (I/O) cable for actuation of the tool with external switch/contacts, and a power cord that provides 120 VAC input to the controller. A customer-supplied test media connection provides the connection between the pressure source and the tool for monitoring test statuses. Additionally, a customer-supplied laptop/PLC controller can be used for monitoring and control, and a serial or Ethernet interface can allow actuation of the tool from the laptop or PLC, as well as communication of the tool status and remote monitoring and control.
Delivering ultimate seal control, ease-of-integration, as well as clean and robust operation, the ETS suits a broad range of applications, including:
