Our company will be celebrating its 90th Anniversary this year and, as you might expect, will be spotlighting a wide array of NDT applications at Düsseldorf 2018. Visitors to the MAC booth at STAND I-12 IN HALL 6 will receive information on MAC’s latest developments and breakthroughs, ranging from full-body testing for spinning tube and weld zone inspection during production, to 500mm Ultrasonic/Flux Leakage multi-test systems for large-diameter pipe.
One of the highlights of the show is sure to be the Echomac® FD6/6A, designed for on- or off-line flaw detection, thickness, weld inspection, and dimensional measurement in tube and pipe.
Pictured above: MAC’s Echomac® FD-6A ultrasonic instrument with immersion tank,
mechanics and conveyor from TAC Technical Instrument Corp., in a system to inspect
titanium tubes for nuclear applications. The test takes place right after the drawing
operation to verify the tube meets required specifications.
Featured At Our Booth
The instrument achieves a high signal to noise ratio, includes a wide range of selectable band pass filter settings, precise thickness resolution, and excellent repeatability and reliability. Its features include Echohunter® software which provides a versatile, intuitive operation with convenient set up and control of all key test parameters on one screen, along with the capability to move thresholds by selecting and dragging on screen, and a global key to adjust or copy a group of test parameters from one channel to another.
The Model 6A also holds GE Qualification for P3TF31 and P29TF82 Class A and B, typically required to meet high-level quality standards for aerospace and other critical applications. The instrument is compatible with rotary, immersion, bubbler or squirter and “spin the tube” type applications.
Presently, the Echomac® series is being used for a variety of applications ranging from full body testing of spinning tube and weld zone inspection during production, to 500mm Ultrasonic/Flux Leakage multi-test systems for large diameter OCTG pipe.
More Reasons To Stop By
- Find out about the next generation of Echomac® WLD Ultrasonic Weld Line Test Systems, which feature new operating conveniences for inspecting tube weld zones on-line during continuous production. This four-channel system is designed to test for longitudinally oriented defects that are typical of the ERW welding process, and uses both CW and CCW sound modes for detection of ID and OD longitudinal defects between 5% and 10% of wall thickness.
- Get information on the new 25mm Echomac® UT Rotary for high-speed flaw and dimensional ultrasonic inspection of tube in high-precision applications. The system is especially well suited for challenging applications requiring high precision such as tubular product for nuclear and aerospace installations, and can successfully test wall thickness as thin as 0.3mm. This 25mm Rotary joins MAC’s line of UT Rotaries which range up to 500mm capacity.
- MAC’s experienced Engineers will be at the booth to discuss the full range of MAC test systems, including innovative MultiMac® Eddy Current weld and full body inspection of large diameter tube ranging up to 1300mm, as well as the compact, affordable Minimac® 55 Eddy Current tester. Information on the Echomac® Ultrasonic Phased Array and Rotoflux® AC Flux Leakage systems for testing bar, as well as other nondestructive test solutions for tube and pipe producers, will be available.
“Tube” and “Wire” in Düsseldorf are the world’s leading exhibitions for the metals industry and one of the most important showcases for professionals in manufacturing, processing and testing tube, wire, pipe, parts and bar. The show attracts international experts, specialists, innovators and global market leaders in cutting-edge trends and innovative technologies.
