ELMSFORD, NY, June 11, 2018— Magnetic Analysis Corporation (MAC), a leader in nondestructive testing, is celebrating 90 years of designing and supplying innovative inspection instruments and systems for metal manufacturers throughout the world.
Founded in 1928 in Long Island City, NY, at a time when testing usually meant “sampling” procedures that destroyed or altered the product being tested, MAC developed electromagnetic techniques to “nondestructively” test steel bars without modifying the product. In 1934, MAC introduced the first successful tester to identify cracks in steel bars in a production mill. Through the years, MAC also developed rotary eddy current testers, phase gating, pulsed eddy current, polar presentation, fully digitized test instrumentation with vivid color presentations, rotary ultrasonic testers, advanced flux leakage inspection, phased array and other advancements that changed the scope of nondestructive testing.
Today, operating on an international scale, MAC continues to find innovative ways to help tube, bar, wire and parts producers meet increasingly demanding specifications for quality. “Using our unique ability and experience with multiple technologies, including eddy current, ultrasonic, phased array, and flux leakage, we don’t just sell a product, we sell a solution – a test solution that is based on the customer’s product, mill configuration, specifications, applications, budget and other specific needs” says Dudley Boden, MAC’s President and CEO.
Boden continued by saying that “as we celebrate this 90-year milestone, we are renewing our longstanding dedication to customer service, while at the same time focusing on an exciting future for NDT with new technologies and applications.” Joseph Baldauff, MAC’s Vice-President of Technology, adds that “our continuous upgrading of existing products and solutions reflects our commitment to making sure that the most advanced, latest developments are available for our customers’ NDT applications. Our success and longevity
are due in part to the advanced capabilities we have brought to the market for nearly a century.”
