Visitors to Magnetic Analysis Corp.’s Booth #555 at Interwire 2023 May 9–11 in Atlanta, GA, will be able to see the Rotomac® 25mm RM, MAC’s newest eddy current rotary for detecting  long, continuous surface flaws, cracks and seams found in cold heading, spring making and other low throughput operations.   

Coupled with MAC’s Minimac® 60/65 eddy current electronics, this system provides cost effective, reliable inspection for cracks and seams in wire or rod in a range of parts forming operations.  Operating at 1000 RPM, with air ride probes and a single test channel, it handles wire, 1/8” – 1” (3mm – 25mm) diameter. Test probe adjustments are easily accessible and separate screw adjustments for each probe enable quick size changes. Typical throughput speeds are 12 ft./min to 40 ft./min.  Bushings keep the product centered dur­ing the test and the rotary’s highly accurate distance compensation, when using an absolute probe, permits testing excessively out of round product. The tester is easy to install as it operates on 120 Vac and there are no special control box or utility requirements.

The Minimac® 50/55 for inspecting wire, rod and tube for short surface and some subsurface defects at speeds up to 4000 f.p.m. will also be on display at the Booth.  A linear rail fixture will demonstrate this unit testing small diameter wire.  Minimac® is also frequently used for inspecting welding wire, including flux core wire where it can detect missing flux as well as flaws in the wire itself. Checking continuity and detecting welds in single and multi-conductor insulated wire and cable are other applications. Using an MID option, the Minimac® is also very effective for detecting magnetic inclusions in non-magnetic product. 

MAC’s Manufacturing Engineer, Troy Libby will also be present in the Booth to discuss his presentation at Interwire on “Achieving High Quality in Wire Using Eddy Current Testing.”  Information on MAC’s full line of eddy current, conventional and phased array ultrasonic, and flux leakage test systems for wire, tube and bar will be available. Magnetic Analysis Corp. has been designing and manufacturing nondestructive test instruments and systems since 1928.
