Magnetic Particle Inspection (MPI) Portable Bench Unit - PBU-350

"A perfect portable MPI solution"

The PBU 350 Portable Magnetic Particle Inspection (MPI) Bench Unit offers great MPI performance teamed with the outstanding quality that Baugh & Weedon is known for. With a long rich history of designing and building MPI benches of all sizes, it is fitting that we have added the portable bench option to our range.

As well as the key features, there are various aspects of the PBU design that set it apart in the marketplace including the ability to add an inking system to the unit offering maximum flexibility to the inspector.

The PBU uses a gas spring to provide the clamping pressure on the headstock that ensures optimum electrical contact with the component under test. We have also developed the coil to offer bi-directional clamping allowing the coil to be manually rotated at 90o for maximum inspection flexibility.
