  • Weight (rotating unit): 600 kg (1323 lb)
 
As a producer of black or bright metal bars, you are confronted with customer demands for high quality products - and for good reason, since semi-finished products are often used in safety critical parts for public transport, automobiles, construction, etc.
The NOVAFLUX flux leakage system can help you find cracks reliably and reduce scrap and material expenses effectively. It detects cracks as small as 0.1 mm in depth.

Reated Projects

Cold heading machines

In the manufacture of small parts using cross-cutting or cold heading machines, high scrap rates often result from defective starting material. Testing the initial material and cutting out the defecti

Continuous drawing line

  • Input control: Identification of bad quality rolled wire (drawing lines for thick wire)
  • Process control: Monitoring of production lines to avoid scrap (medium and fine drawing bloc

Thick material inspection (TMI)

Application fields

  • Production type: thick-walled tubes with a longitudinal weld seam; welded seams can be tested in their full thickness
  • Materials: austenitic steel, aluminum,
