FasTest has launched the Electronic Tooling System (ETS), a modular electronic sealing device for use within applications such as female luer connectors, plastic moulded parts, lumens and medical connections and automation.

The ETS is claimed to easily integrate into most leak-test systems for manual, semi- or fully automated testing.

According to the company, the ETS provides a clean and reliable alternative to traditional pneumatic sealing devices, simplifying and improving leak tests in a range of demanding applications, such as medical, pharmaceutical, food and beverage, and industrial.

By varying the target current, the device is scalable, providing a repeatable sealing force that ranges from a soft touch for delicate parts to a firm grip for work holding.
