Quick change of material diameter on the drawing line

Eddy current testing system with innovative sensor concept
(PresseBox) (Ismaning, ) At the TUBE 2014 PRÜFTECHNIK NDT GmbH presents a new system from the eddy current testing product line. The RS20 rotating system makes testing new material diameters uncomplicated, with quick and easy replacement the complete sensor unit.

The benefits of the RS20 lie primarily in the speed at which material diameters can be changed. Only three minutes are usually enough. Besides, the encapsulated sensor units are extremely robust and easily come in and out without any moving parts.

When producing rods and wires of various material diameters, eddy current systems must adapt quickly with each change of diameter. Guide bushings and testing parameters must be adjusted each time. Diameter adjustments, and the subsequent check using calipers, are often time-consuming and complicated.

The new RS20 system for non-destructive eddy current testing of metallic cylindrical material such as tubes, wires and rods of diameters ranging 2 to 20 mm enables high throughput rates. Thanks to its rugged and compact design, it is easily integrated into the production lines (drawing lines).

Another trend-setting, multi-channel eddy current testing system from the EDDYCHECK family is expected. Both innovations can be experienced live at the TUBE 2014. Visit us in Hall 6, Booth 6E09. We look forward to seeing you.

PRÜFTECHNIK NDT GmbH, a renowned specialist for eddy current testing systems provides a wide range of test equipment for reliable quality assurance in the semi-finished product industry. The EDDYCHEK and NOVAFLUX test equipment are used in numerous production techniques, for process monitoring and final testing of tubes, steel bars and wire. The eddy current test complies with a whole range of international standards, including ASTM, API, BS, JIS, ETTC, ENEL, DIN and SEP.
