PRODUCTION COMPARATOR VI
A single frequency Windows® computer based nondestructive test instrument that uses low frequency electromagnetic techniques to inspect magnetic materials for variations in physical characteristics such as alloy, heat treatment and case depth. Highly selective gating circuit permits it to discriminate between changes in the signal’s phase, amplitude or harmonic distortion from the fundamental frequency to its 13th order harmonic. The instrument also features a unique display (vector or lissajou) that provides simultaneous display of the standard, acceptable piece and the test piece wave forms for easy comparison. Setup and monitor on site or through a computer network.
- Checking case depth, core hardness, alloy and structure in ferromagnetic tube or bar at production line speeds on line or off line. Three way sorting of magnetic parts automatically, when used with MAC’s automated Parts Gates.

AUTOSORT® SORTING SYSTEMS
Standard Parts Test System
MAC standard NDT parts testers usually utilize the Varimac V eddy current comparator with an automated parts sorting gate to separate parts into three categories – above specification, below specification and acceptable. The sort speed of the Varimac V instrument is only limited by the parts handling and sorting mechanism. Used in conjunction with MAC’s Model 570 gate system, for example, the Varimac provides reliable, 3 way sorting at speeds up to 6 parts per second, based on differences in alloy, hardness, case depth, grain size, processing variations, plating thickness, some dimensions and orientation.
Customized Parts Testers
Highly sophisticated customized parts testers using several test technologies and appropriate automated handling equipment have been developed and produced for inspecting shell bodies, grenades, bearing races, and automotive parts, among others.
- Inspect and sort for hardness, alloy, or other physical characteristics in metal parts.
