S-5000 series "3-D" Multi-Mode Magnetic Particle Inspection System for production and piece part testing

the S-5000 "3-D" is the most flexible and adaptable mag. unit available

  • "3-D" mode for one-shot detection of flaws in ALL directions
  • Standard mode for conventional testing using Head-Shot and Coil modes

All current types are provided for maximum flexibility - They can be used in ANY combination

  • FHWC - Full Wave DC

  • HWDC - Half Wave DC

  • AC - Alternating Current


All functions are fully switchable by the operator from the front panel. Three individual current control knobs are provided for fine tuning and superior controllability

Demagnetization is accomplished by selecting either AC ramp-down or reversing DC.

The "3-D" system utilizes all solid state control and switching technology. Standard magnetization time for all three directions is less than 200 milliseconds, controlling a three-phase power train.

The "3-D" system meets the requirements of MIL-STD-1949A.


Solid State Systems "3-D" M.P.I. test system increases test reliability, improves defect detection and reduces labor cost dramatically. Multiple step magnetizations are routinely reduced from eight or ten steps down to one or two. Man hours can be decreased approximately by 80%.

The shot duration time starts at a phenomenal 0.18 seconds.

The "3-D" MPI system is presently being used and/or approved by:

  • United Technologies/Hamilton Standard
