The MAGMASTER 4500 is a versatile high quality magnetic particle crack detector designed to meet the demands for critical inspection of parts during overhaul in the aircraft, automotive, and general engineering industries.

Pneumatic clamping heads enables a wide variety of ferrous parts to be tested, including crankshafts, camshafts, cylinder heads, axles, gears, con rods, bolts, pins, and nuts etc.

A range of optional equipment is available to extend the versatility and convenience of operation, including off bench testing of parts too large to be accommodated on the machine.

The MAGMASTER 4500 complies with International Standards for Magnetic Particle Inspection including ASTM E1444-05, AS1171-1998, BS6072, and Electrical Safety Standard AS3100.


  • Two axis magnetising. Current through part to locate longitudinal or lengthwise cracks, and coil magnetising to locate radial or transverse cracks.  Quick changeover from contact heads to coil. The selected mode is indicated on the control display screen.

  • 4500amps AC peak magnetising current. 

  • Optional HWDC in addition to AC.

  • Automatic push button AC 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.

  • Accepts parts up to 1350mm long and 100Kgs in weight on head shelves, and 250Kgs when supported on steadies. Optional 2000mm capacity.

  •  Optional heavy duty heads to support up to 500Kgs on steadies

  • 350mm internal diameter coil, producing up to 12,000 peak ampere turns.  Optional 450mm coil.

  • Pneumatic clamp system for positive electrical contact. An air filter, regulator and gauge unit controls and monitors the clamping pressure.

  • Both heads fitted with resilient braided copper pads for arc free contact.

  • Integrated Vee blocks support small cylindrical parts.

  • Each head fitted with cable takeoff points for special or off bench testing.


  • ·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. Thermal overload protection.  Overload condition indicated on the display screen.

  • The rotary position of the current control is displayed digitally in unit steps 1-100 enabling precise setting of any desired magnetising current value up to the rated maximum.

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

  • A range of optional equipment is detailed on reverse.

  • A heavy duty ruggedised version is available for use in heavy industries eg., railways, shipyards, foundries, forges etc  (Data Sheet available)​
