UIS Announces Turnkey Service for Leak Testing Automation

May 22, 2012

The joint venture combines USON's advanced leak-testing equipment with Innovative Products and Equipment's expertise for semi- and fully-automated leak testing.

HOUSTON, TX -- Control and quality engineers seeking to eliminate the risk of releasing defective leak-proof products and components to market can now rely on USON-Innovative Systems (UIS), a newly created joint venture between USON's best-in-class leak testers and Innovative Products and Equipment's automation systems expertise.

UIS is a single source turnkey solution for semi-automated and fully automated leak testing applications.

Sophisticated automation systems such as state-of-the-art robotic part handling are tightly integrated with the USON leak detector best suited for a particular leak testing application challenge by the industry leading engineering talent comprising the UIS service.

Dave Foran, President of USON comments, "UIS marries a deep bench of mechanical and control engineering talent from Innovative Products and Equipment with USON's unsurpassed leak testing applications engineering team. Our customers seeking to automate or semi-automate their NDT leak testing operations will be able to get a turnkey single source custom clean assembly design that is not only tuned to their leak detection needs but is also the most efficient production line design possible. This means lower costs, faster throughputs and faster time-to-market."

Dale Beaver, President of Innovative Products and Equipment (IPE), further explains, "UIS is an extension of a collaboration that began many years ago to develop elegant designs for production lines that include best-in-class USON leak detection equipment. There is very little in terms of leak testing production lines that we haven't encountered before. We bring a number of state-of-the-art automated assembly designs to give the customer a tried and true solution and when they have unique needs we have the team in place to create new solutions in rapid order."

In most cases, UIS will provide a detailed application quote within two weeks of request. UIS applications can be made by contacting JoePustka at or calling +281-671-2000
