The MAGMASTER 4000 is a general purpose heavy-duty bench type crack detector ideally suited to engine  econditioning and performance work, offering excellent capabilities with the minimum of 

Crankshafts, camshafts cylinder, heads, axles, gears and many other types of ferrous components can be quickly and thoroughly checked without special skills, by the magnetic particle inspection method.

In typical operation, a crankshaft is placed on the vee heads, flooded with inspection fluid whilst given a shot of magnetising current, and then examined for longitudinal cracks. The coil can be moved over the part to check for circumferential cracks.

A wide range of optional facilities is available to extend the versatility of the crack detector to suit virtually any testing requirement, including engine blocks and parts too large to be accommodated on the machine. With a unique manual clamp fixture, nuts, bolts, con rods, stub axles etc., can be easily tested.



  • Two axis magnetising.Current through part to locate longitudinal or lengthwise cracks, and coil magnetising to  Locate radial or transverse cracks.

  • Quick changeover from heads to coil via front panel mode selector switch. The selected mode is indicated on the control display screen.

  • 4000amps AC peak magnetising current.

  • Accepts crankshafts up to 1750mm long and 300kg in weight.

  • 350mm internal diameter coil, producing up to 10,000 peak ampere turns. Coil parks at left end of bed, clear of part for ease of loading onto the heads.

  • Automatic push button electronic demagnetising.

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

  • Thermal overload protection. Overload state indicated on display screen.


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

  • High quality and ruggedly constructed. Stainless steel tank with integrated 20 litre fluid storage sump and pump agitation system.

  • 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. Ammeter holds display on for approx. 4 seconds for ease of verification.

  • The position of the current control is displayed digitally in unit steps 0-100 enabling precise setting of any desired magnetising current value up to the rated maximum.

  • Complies with International standards for magnetic particle inspection - ASTM E1444-05, AS1171, BS6072 and Electrical Safety Standard AS3100. Controls comply with IP65.

  • Operator efficiency and work throughput enhanced by ease of operation.
