MAGMASTER 5000 Heavy Duty Crack Detector
The MAGMASTER 5000 is a high quality large capacity magnetic particle crack detector designed to provide the performance necessary to meet the exacting demands for quality control during production and maintenance in the automotive, railroad, marine and general engineering industries.
The MAGMASTER 5000 is designed to accept parts crankshafts up to 2750mm long and 1000kg weight as used in heavy off road and stationary engines, as well as many types of locomotive and marine crankshafts and components.
The MAGMASTER 5000 complies with ASTM-E1444-05, BS6072, AS1171 and Electrical Safety Standard AS3100. In addition it meets major engine manufacturers specifications for crack testing by the magnetic particle method e.g. Caterpillar, Cummins, etc. A wide range of optional facilities is available to extend the versatility of operation, including off bench testing of parts too large to be accommodated on the machine, e.g. engine blocks, marine propeller shafts, etc.

Specifications

  • Two axis magnetising. Current through part to check for longitudinal or lengthwise cracks, and coil magnetizing to check for radial or transverse cracks.

  • 5000 AC + 5000 half wave DC peak magnetizing currents. AC to locate surface defects and DC to locate subsurface defects.

  • Accepts parts up to 2750mm long and 1000kg in weight.

  • 450mm internal diameter 4 turn coil, producing 12,000 peak ampere turns. Optional 550mm coil.

  • Optional coil transverse system whereby the coil can be moved up to 120mm, lateral to the centre line, for increased magnetizing influence on small diameter parts.

  • Digital ammeter accurately indicates peak AC + HWDC magnetising currents. Holds current reading on display for 5 seconds and automatically resets.

  • Continuously variable current control enabling setting of
    any desired magnetising current value up to the rated
    maximum.

Benifits

  • Australian manufacture backed by over 30 years experience in magnetic particle inspection systems.

  • High quality and ruggedly constructed. Stainless steel tank.

  • Reliable plug in electronic control system. 2 year warranty on electronic modules.

  • 5 year warranty on the magnetising transformer.

  • Digital ammeter and controls at eye level.

  • Operator efficiency and work throughput enhanced by ease of operation

  • Electronic timer controls the period of the magnetisingshots for consistent repeatability.

  • Automatic push button electronic AC Demagnetising.

  • Electronic solid state switching for HEAD/COIL, AC/DC mode selection.

  • Cable takeoff points for special or off bench testing, e.g. engine blocks.

  • Pneumatic end clamp system fitted to both heads for positive electrical contact.

  • Easy running tailstock for fast traversing and fitted with pneumatic lock.

  • Supplied with adjustable roller steadies to support cylindrical parts from 50 to 200mm diameter and up to 1000kg.

  • 20 litre inspection fluid storage system with efficient jet agitation system suitable for oil or water based fluids.

  • The demag cycle is continuously monitored by a flashing digit and when the cycle is complete, the digit reverts to a steady state.

  • The rotational position of the current control is displayed digitally in unit steps 1-100.

OPTIONAL EQUIPMENT

  • OPTION 01

  • 550mm (22") ID COIL

  • OPTION 02 COIL TRANSVERSE SYSTEM
    Allows the coil to be moved up to 125mm transversely at 90º to the bed length, so that the inside of the coil, where the
    magnetising influence is at a maximum, can be positioned closer to the component under test.

  • OPTION 03 LIGHT RESTRICTING HOOD
    Complete with sliding front curtain. The hood is designed to fold back for overhead loading of large/heavy parts.

  • OPTION 04 BLACKLIGHT LAMP ( Part No. 1500-100 )

  • High intensity 100 watt blacklight (ultraviolet) lamp for use with fluorescent inspection fluid.
    Supplied with mounting bracket

  • OPTION 05 BLACKLIGHT SUPPORT ASSEMBLY
    Attaches to rear of right hand transversing head. Consists of a pair of adjustable swinging arms on to which the blacklight is
    mounted. The blacklight can be positioned for convenient hands free inspection.

  • OPTION 06 EXTENSION MAGNETISING CABLE KIT ( Part No. 1512-02 )
    For off bench testing of engine blocks, or parts too large to be accommodated on the machine.
    Comprises:- 2 x 2.5 metre cables with spring clamps to attach to part.
    1 x 5 meter cable to encircle the part or form a coil.

  • OPTION 07 QUALITY CONTROL KIT ( Part No. 1551 / QCK )
    Essential to maintain a high standard of quality control over the system to ensure maximum performance.
    Comprises:- * A magnetic flux test ring, c/w central conductor, to check the relative effectiveness of the magnetic
    system during head shots.
    * A test tube and stand to check fluid particle concentration.
    * A magnetic field indicator to check for residual magnetism after demagnetising.

  • OPTION 08 OVERHEAD COMBINED BLACK AND WHITELIGHT
    For general illumination within the light restricting hood.
    The whitelight is controlled by an illuminated switch on the assembly.
    The assembly is mounted on cantilever arms allowing it to be swung clear during overhead loading of components.

  • OPTION 09 HOOD AIR VENTILATION EXHAUSTER
    Provides an improved environment when working under arduous conditions. Fitted with a light exclusion cowl to eliminate ambient light entry.

  • OPTION 10 SMALL PARTS FIXTURE ( Part No. 1517 )
    Provides a convenient means of holding small parts between the contact heads.
