Damage to test equipment is always a possibility given the harsh environments we work in. The Y-2's field-replaceable power cord is a big benefit. It enables a quick fix to power cord problems and dramatically reduces down time for repairs.
ROLLING MEADOWS, Ill. (PRWEB) January 21, 2020
Berg Engineering & Sales Company, Inc. provides equipment and services for industrial testing. Berg announces the immediate availability of the Magnaflux Y-2 yoke, the next generation of Magnetic Particle Inspection (MPI) tools, for non-destructive testing in detecting surface and shallow subsurface discontinuities in ferromagnetic materials.
The Y-2 is a lightweight, heavy duty, AC electromagnetic yoke which produces strong magnetic fields for the detection of surface indications during MPI. At only 4.8 pounds, compared to over 7 pounds for competing products, the Y-2 improves operator productivity with a new ergonomic design that reduces arm strain and wrist fatigue. The O-ring sealed housing meets IP54 enclosure rating, which ensures no damage from dust and water. The trigger switch and power cord are field-replaceable.
"In our industry damage to test equipment is always a possibility given the harsh environments we work in. The Y-2's field-replaceable power cord is a big benefit for our customers. It not only enables a quick fix to power cord problems in the field without the need for any tools, but dramatically reduces down time for repairs," said Stephen Berg, CEO of Berg Engineering.
Berg Engineering provides service for the Y-2 across the entire purchase lifecycle, from product research and purchase to post-purchase support and training. The company is a Magnaflux stocking distributor as well as an Authorized Magnaflux Service Center. In support of the Y-2, Berg stocks the full line of complementary products including the following:
- Complete Y-2 Yoke kits
- Colored non-fluorescent magnetic particles
- Oil-based visible magnetic particles
- Contrast paint
- Magnetic field strength meters
- Yoke weights
- Yoke lights
