|Ronkonkoma, N.Y., 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 testcycle
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. Worlds 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 VICs
own state-of-the-art dual magnetic sector helium mass spectrometer for error-free
The UFT model rounds out VICs 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. VICs 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 VICs 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.
