MAC has successfully applied Eddy Current, Ultrasonic, and/or Flux Leakage inspection techniques to inspecting plates.
Typical flaws and conditions that can be detected include:
Internal defects in ferrous & non ferrous plates
Laminations & other conditions in strip used for welded tube
Foreign inclusions such as ferrous chips in aluminum plate
Other flaws & conditions
Testing Aluminum, Copper and Steel Plate
MAC has eddy current tests to inspect copper and aluminum plate for steel inclusions, using spinning eddy current test probes that traverse the surface. An ultrasonic system with multiple transducers can detect surface flaws in steel plate. A system is also available for inspecting slabs, directly after the straightener, and as the slab leaves the casting machine, uses spinning discs with eddy current technology to detect random direction surface cracks.
Internal defects in ferrous and non ferrous plates can be detected with MAC ultrasonic technologies.
Detecting Flaws and Conditions
Custom Systems for Inspecting Strip and Plate
Custom test systems to detect surface flaws, inclusions, or other conditions in strip have been developed by MAC. Specialized handling, an array of test sensors, and other innovative techniques are available. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss your specific application.
