Issue: 2019-03
Magnetic Analysis Corp. has recently supplied an ultrasonic test system to a major finishing processor of bars for medical components. Featuring MAC’s new top of the line 25mm Echomac® UT Rotary, Echomac® FD-6A electronics, triple pinch bench and a customized belt conveyor and sorting system, this inspection apparatus is capable of testing to the highest quality levels detecting the very small mandated notches dictated by the aerospace, nuclear and medical industries.

The new Echomac® 25mm Rotary provides 100% coverage at high throughput rates, ranging up to 200 ft per minute, depending on customer requirements. Features include a transformer design which ensures improved signal to noise ratio, enhanced bandwidth, zero channel cross-talk, 8,000 RPM running speed, precision test blocks and transducer holders. Other advantages include convenient adjustment of the transducer angle, fast change-overs, and control by an easy to use PLC with touch panel. Bars as short as 1 meter can be successfully tested and the 630mm overall length of the Rotary also allows for ease of installation in existing inspection lines that need upgrading.

The Echomac® FD-6A software includes a C scan for ease of test result analysis. Special mechanics are provided to handle the small diameters with maximum protection for the surface of the material under test and the triple bench is provided with a Lexan hood to ensure safety of the operator while allowing the test to be visually monitored.

MAC’s Echomac® FD-6A instrumentation is also GE qualified to meet certain typical requirements for critical applications such as nuclear and aerospace. The 25mm Echomac® joins MAC’s line of ultrasonic rotaries that now handle material ranging from 5mm to 500mm diameter.
