Magnetic Analysis Corp. has supplied an ultrasonic/eddy current multi-test system to inspect cold drawn welded tube being used in manufacturing shock absorbers at a plant in Monterrey, Mexico, built by Prosankin, formerly known as A-4C-Sankin. The plant’s focus is production and sales of cold drawn tubes primarily for automotive use, although the test system is also designed to provide the future capability of meeting API 5CT testing requirement for oil country tubular goods (OCTG).

Multi-Test System for Automotive Shock Absorber Tubing, & OCTG featuring 100mm ultrasonic Echomac® Rotary test and a MultiMac® eddy current tester.

Shock absorbers are a critical component of automotive chassis. While they are commonly called “shock” absorbers, their function is actually not to absorb shock but to reduce and decelerate the vibrations of vehicle springs that are contained within the shock absorber tube – in effect, acting as a vibration dampener. Working together, the springs and the shock absorbers provide the link between wheel suspension and car body, compensating for uneven road surfaces. Most cars produced in mass production today feature gas-filled shock absorbers. Accurate and thorough testing of the tube during its production is essential in order to prevent leaking gas.
