Product Information

The Model 1560W weighs only 550 pounds, producing excellent output per unit weight . This unit can be easily rolled around on their 8-inch heavy duty swivel casters, or can be maneuvered with a forklift. The Model 1560W is equipped with four lifting rings for overhead crane transport.

Remote Option

A special remote-control unit is available for use with the Model 1560W. It provides control of the magnetizing and demagnetizing current from a convenient hand-held unit. A remote On-Off switch on the front panel of the machine provides for quick selection of local or remote-controlled operation.

Key Applications for Magne-Tech® Mobiles

These self-contained, mobile unites can be moved or rolled anywhere in shop, foundry, refinery, petrochemical plant or manufacturing facilities to detect surface and near surface cracks by the MPI method.

The Magne-Tech® Model 1560W provides 6,000 amperes of alternating or half-wave direct current. Both localized and overall magnetization can be employed when inspecting diverse magnetic materials. The demagnetizing process is as simple as pushing a button with cables in place.

Simple to Operate

All operating controls and indicators are located on the recessed front panel. The easily read ammeter shows magnetizing current in either AC or half-wave DC operating modes. The AC mode minimizes background interference, permitting high sensitivity, speed, and accuracy of surface defect identification. The DC mode provides increased magnetic field penetration for detection of near surface discontinuities. A current adjustment control permits precise adjustment of the magnetizing current. The ammeter is protected against damage from rough handling, and all units are protected against overheating.
