MAC Expands Product Line at Laser Speed

Welded tube being inspected for weld zone quality issues by the WI2000p laser
From “3 technologies, 1 company”; which has been MAC’s statement for decades, now expands to 4 technologies. MAC is proud to announce that it has added laser inspection equipment for detecting welding imperfections in tube and pipe. This technology, produced by MAC’s partner Xiris, detects weld undercut, sunk welds, pinholes, weld height, and weld register (mismatch).

A high speed video camera combined with fast data capture and analysis rates provides detection of defects down to 0.015 mm in size on a typical laser welding tube mill. Weld types such as ERW, TIG, SAW, amongst others, are also inspected. Direct integration with the tube mill’s marking system allows for weld defects to be marked instantaneously without halting the mill. The WI2000p laser can collect up to 250 profile images per second, providing the mill with real-time trend reporting; simplifying mill set-up, minimizing down time, and material scrap.

For customers that need 100% inspection coverage of their material for defects such as cracks, slivers, inclusions, and other discontinuities, MAC also offers eddy current and ultrasonic equipment that can enhance the inspection line capabilities. For more information, please visit MAC’s website,
