Ronkonkoma, NY, June 2, 2008 — Vacuum Instrument Corp., world leading manufacturer of leak detection equipment and leak test systems, releases a new addition to their established and reliable MS-50 high production console leak detector series. The MS-50 UFT is a fully automated high production helium leak detector for testing the hermeticity of sealed products such as semiconductors and microelectronics packaged devices. It features an integrated flush mount test cup, which initiates an automated test-cycle sequence when closed by the operator. Unique UFT recipes allow for specific configuration of the test parameters.
The MS-50 UFT simplifies daily operation, minimizes operator error, and maximizes throughput and efficiency for semiconductor and small parts manufacturers, who use the detectors to check hermetic packaging, and numerous other devices.
Standard features of the MS-50 Series models include: resolution of 14 at mass 4, which is twice the industry average. World’s only production leak detector with a full-screen interactive display. Three flow modes provide flexibility and maximum productivity for application-specific leak testing.
The MS-50 Series is the most advanced high speed production consol helium leak detector in the industry, offering highest sensitivity, fastest test-time and utilizes VIC’s own state-of-the-art dual magnetic sector helium mass spectrometer for error-free operation.
The UFT model rounds out VIC’s MS-50 Series product line which includes the MS-50 (wet), MS-50 Dry, MS-50 Dual Port, MS- 50 High Sensitivity, and MS-50 Argon models. The MS-50 is available in other configurations designed to meet specific requirements.
About the Company
Vacuum Instrument Corporation (VIC) is the world's largest company devoted solely to research and design, manufacture, distribution, training and service of leak detectors and complete leak detector solutions. Founded in 1958 as Vacuum Instrument Corporation, VIC introduced the first portable helium leak detector in 1967, went on to develop the first fully automatic industrial leak detection system in 1978, and the first “sniff only” helium leak detector in 1990. In 1994 VIC was selected by the National Center for Manufacturing Sciences (NCMS) to join a consortium of leading research laboratories and Fortune 50 companies to develop the next generation of leak detection technology. In 2000, Vacuum Instrument Corporation acquired the Leak Detection Division of Veeco Instruments Inc. (Plainview, NY). This division was reorganized as the Advanced Leak Metrology Division. VIC’s Industrial Leak Detection, Air Leak Testing, and Advanced Leak Metrology Divisions combine their engineering, manufacturing, and marketing resources as VIC Leak Detection.
VIC has the world's largest base of installed leak detectors. More than one billion products have been tested with VIC’s portable vacuum-type helium sniffers, general purpose helium leak detectors, mass flow and pressure decay systems, and complete turnkey leak detection solutions. VIC employs more than 120 people at its corporate headquarters and manufacturing facilities, located in Ronkonkoma, NY and Dayton, OH. Factory direct sales and service are available worldwide.
