Free Book Includes List of Common Leak Detection Mistakes
DETROIT -- “Leak Testing in the Automotive Industry: A Comprehensive Guide to Leak Detection” is a new 51-page book published by INFICON for automotive engineers and quality-control managers, as well as for engineering students and teachers.
Available free of charge at http://www.inficon.com/automotiveindustry-ebook, the book is a valuable source of leak-detection information and includes a list of the industry’s 10 most common leak-detection mistakes. It also provides an in-depth look at leak testing in general, including the strengths and weaknesses of various test methods.
Thomas Parker, INFICON’s North American automotive sales manager, points out that leak tests are among the most critical quality-control checks performed by auto makers and their suppliers. Millions of leak-detection tests are conducted annually on safety-related components, including airbags, fuel tanks, batteries and driveline parts, before new-model cars and trucks reach dealership showrooms.
“All aspects of auto-industry leak testing are covered in our new e-book,” Parker notes. “It’s designed to provide manufacturing engineers and managers with information that will help them make decisions about the best leak-testing methods for their particular applications.
“The book is a worthwhile read for experienced quality-control managers as well as for students. It covers everything from the basics up to more specific leak-test applications.”
