Pfeiffer Vacuum Opens New US Leak Detection And Vacuum Tech Facility


New 40,000 sq ft Leak Detection Center of Excellence and Custom Engineered Vacuum System manufacturing facility in Indianapolis, IN

Pfeiffer Vacuum has opened up a new 40,000 square foot facility on May 13th. This state-of-the-art facility is located at 4037 Guion Lane, Indianapolis, Indiana.

The new facility serves North American customers in all technological questions around leak detection and high-vacuum technology, focusing on semiconductor applications, medical devices, consumer electronics, pharmaceutical, automotive and industries. The new building includes a CNC machine shop and modular assembly bays to support air and helium leak detection as well as custom engineered vacuum systems.

Leak Detection Center of Excellence
A new application laboratory will be of great benefit to customers by offering in-person or interactive customer training and demonstrations. Customers will be able to have parts tested on all Pfeiffer Vacuum leak detection technologies such as air, helium and hydrogen test methods and determine which is the best for their application. Using the newly created multimedia production center, Pfeiffer Vacuum will document the optimal solution. The company can also offer remote, interactive training so that customers can conveniently become more proficient in using Pfeiffer Vacuum leak testing equipment.

Custom Engineered Vacuum Solutions
In addition to the Leak Detection Center of Excellence, Pfeiffer Vacuum has established a Custom Engineered Vacuum Solutions team that provides engineering, designing, manufacturing and training. Pfeiffer Vacuum partners with customers to understand their vacuum needs and to provide them turnkey solutions. The custom vacuum systems utilize Pfeiffer Vacuum's extensive range of vacuum products. This includes pumps, pressure gauges, gas analyzers, leak detectors as well as a complete line of fittings, valves and custom chambers. To ensure system performance, vacuum training and field service are offered. This enables the customers to focus on their core competency and not have to worry about vacuum system design.

Energy-conscious Design
The design of the new building also considers the sustainability approach of Pfeiffer Vacuum. Thanks to the implementation of a high quality, efficient roof insulation, the energy consumption for heating and cooling will be significantly reduced. In addition, charging stations for electrical vehicles have been installed. By maximizing the use of daylight as a natural light source for the working stations, energy use is further decreased. All assembly and machining areas are designed for employee safety and comfort, including an improved air handling and segmented work spaces, which provide for intuitive social distancing.

“The Pfeiffer Vacuum Indianapolis division has been building instruments and complete leak detection systems for over 25 years. This new state-of-the-art facility will allow us to support the growth of the automotive, pharmaceutical and semiconductor industry as well as other industries in North America. The central location of this new facility provides advantageous and cost-effective services and logistics throughout North America. With our expanded in-house design, engineering expertise and decades of experience, we are very well positioned to help customers with their next custom vacuum system”, says Derek Izzi, General Manager of Pfeiffer Vacuum Indianapolis.
