Re-Thinking MPI Machines

The typical MPI machine is a big, heavy, high current Full Wave DC Machine, which is expensive to purchase, operate and maintain.

You are probably looking for surface cracks, because the surface is where stresses are concentrated and materials crack. AC magnetization concentrates the magnetic field on the surface (skin effect) which is also contour following for the best sensitivity to surface cracks. The polarity (+/-) shifting increases particle mobility. AC Magnetic Particle machines are less expensive to own and operate. AC is also a natural at demagnetizing.

Customizable Options:

  • Frame: Standard, Heavy Duty Aluminum or Special Order Steel.
  • Head Space: Why buy a machine that is 6' long if you are only testing 8" bolts? MAS machines come in 20", 28", 40", or 60" capacity.
  • Coil Diameter: 10" standard, 14" round or 16" square
  • Height: Table-Top or Full-Size Floor styles
  • Power Supply: You can use any suitable power supply. AC, AC/HWDC, with AC demag or use your own portable/mobile units and upgrade as needed
  • Max Part Weight: 77 lbs standard, 220 lbs optional (steel frame)
  • Clamping: Standard manual lever clamping or optional pneumatic clamping
  • Magnetization Method: Standard Head Shot & Coil (manual cable change), or Multi-Directional (swinging field)
  • Spray Application: Particle application spray system or aerosol spray cans
  • Overhead Frame: To hang a large area LED UV Lamp

 

For example, the image on the left shows the following options:

  1. Overhead UV Lamp Frame
  2. Stainless Steel Pan (standard)
  3. Floor Legs
  4. Stainless Steel Pump
  5. Power Supply

 

These features come standard:

  1. Copper Pads with "V" Lock

Additional Notes:

Multi-Directional (rotating field) uses a dual output power supply that powers the Coil and Heads from 2 legs of a 3-Phase system, creating a rotating or swinging field that detects cracks and other surface flaws in any orientation in less than the normal inspection time. 

Coil - Head Shot Switch (for use with Single Power Supply): Quick and easy switching - when the part is clamped using the clamping lever, current flows through the part. When unclamped, current is directed to the coil.

Frames:

  • Standard Frame uses 3.2" x 1.6" aluminum profile (80 x 40 mm) with 1.6" x 1.6" (40 x 40 mm) for legs and lamp frame. Maximum part weight: 77 lbs. (35 kg)
  • Heavy Duty Aluminum frame uses 3.2" x 3.2" aluminum profile (80 x 80 mm) for body, legs and lamp frame. Maximum part weight is 154 lbs. (70 kg)
  • Special Order Steel frame uses welded steel with maximum part weight of 220 lbs. (100 kg)

 

 

PTS MAS Bench units can be powered with:

Conventional AC or AC/HWDC portable power supply.
Plug one side into the ground socket and the other cable to Head Shot or Coil socket. Or, use with the optional Coil - Head Shot Switch. When this Switch is employed and the part is clamped using the clamping lever, current flows to the part. When unclamped, current is directed to the coil.

Duo Power Supply – Two Power supplies in one.
Multi-Directional magnetization using two out of phase circuits creates a rotating or swinging field that detects cracks in any orientation in the same test sequence.
