State-of-the-art NDT Testing of Wire Rope

A quality user-friendly wire rope NDT inspection system

The Magnograph® series of wire rope NDT testers are the leading non-destructive instrument to test the condition of steel rope sections. Detecting corrosion and broken wires, this is simply not possible with visual inspections.

This state-of-the-art NDT testing of wire rope quickly and efficiently identifies defects through the entire cross section of rope. Even non-skilled personnel can operate the Magnograph. View real-time data and perform post-test data analysis easier than ever before.

Magnograph® MAG II is designed to test ropes from 12-64mm (1/2 to 2-1/2 inch) diameters. It utilizes 5 different sizes of interchangeable rope guides in the sensor head.

The Magnograph® was originally developed by the Noranda Research Center and Canadian Centre for Mineral and Energy Technology. Heath & Sherwood is the original product’s licensed manufacturer and has been marketing Magnograph’s since 1980.

The Magnograph® series of NDT wire rope tester will provide the most accurate and reliable results for your wire rope testing requirements.
