Magnetic wheels for scanner

We are about to remodel our UT-scanners for use at ferritic surfaces. The wheels shall be driven by magnetic wheels (diameter ~45mm). The question is where to get these wheels. Someone who know about such offers please contact me.

Re: Magnetic wheels for scanner
Envision Product Design manufactures intelligent magnetic crawlers in several sizes and configurations for industrial NDT, as well as providing up-grades and refurbishing of simple UT crawlers. Dr. Joe Imlach, a magnetic specialist, designs our wheels and as a result we achieve much higher performance than by placing soft iron plates on the sides of toroidal magnets. We built custom magnetic wheels, with or without integrated bearings and gears, in a broad range of diameters (12mm to 100mm) with attachment strengths from 2 kg to over 200 kg per wheel. We would be happy to quote your wheels if you can provide the needed details.

do the wheels need to be magnetic?
wouldn't a magnetic plate suspended 0.5mm gap from test surhave

THis is the trick.
You get 416ss alloy bar stock and Neodynium magnets.

The wider the face the better 7mm will do. Place the magnet between the bar stockthat you have cut down in to wheel hubs and place the magnet so that the N & S poles are faceing the wheel hubs you need about 10 to 15mm gap between the hubs to seperate the fields. depending on your load a 5cmx5cmx2.5cm magnet should do.

Joerg we make the best wheels in the biz if you need help shoot me a note. Mark
