Leak testing for waterproof products

Third Quarter 2019 Other technologies

For more than forty years, ATEQ has been well-known in the quality testing industry as a company that manufactures highly accurate industrial leak testing instruments. Many applications that ATEQ has tested have been in the automotive, industrial and medical industries, but within the last few years ATEQ has taken its expertise into the consumer electronics industry.

One of the hottest trends in the electronics industry is waterproof products. To be classified as waterproof, each opening on a device must be thoroughly leak tested to ensure that it meets the desired IP certification standards. For example, if a smartphone achieves an IP67 waterproof rating, that means the device is fully protected against dust getting into the phone and can withstand being submerged in water for up to 30 mins in 1m depth. ATEQ’s leak testers use pressure decay air leak testing to measure pressure drops, which determine the air leak rates within the device.

After successfully providing custom waterproof testing solutions to several major smartphone and smartwatch manufacturers, ATEQ was encouraged to broaden its reach into this industry by exhibiting at the world’s largest annual tradeshow, the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, for the first time. It was determined that there is a large growing global demand for companies like ATEQ, that can provide waterproofing consulting and testing equipment to electronics manufacturers.
