K-Pak Production Update: Leak Testing
As you may have read on the K-Pak website, we intend for our case to be water-resistant, to be at parity with the GoPro Standard Case (which claims water resistance up to 3 meters, or 10 feet). In doing so, we take every precaution during the design and engineering stages to build in features that provide that function. So even when we get to the manufacturing stage, we need to verify that these features will support our claim. In doing so, we need to build fixtures that will simulate the pressures of being submerged in 10 feet of water.
The two main areas that we spent a lot of time testing are the main rear door, and the font plate. We make fixtures that allow us to draw a vacuum, while submerging them in water. Have a look!
