Manchester-based engineering company VES announced the launch of its OptVol TechnologyTM, a recent innovation in helium leak testing. A helium leak testing system that incorporates OptVol Technology benefits from a small footprint, easily interchangeable tooling for different product variants and a lightweight design for ease of movement between production lines, as production demands change.

The company have completed a formal analysis comparing OptVol Technology with traditional hard vacuum tracer gas systems and have recorded significant improvements across all data points.

• 74% reduction in footprint
• 85% reduction in weight
• 10% improvement in cycle times
• 92% reduction in power consumption
• 44% reduction in helium consumption
