Good by Itself, Great Together with Other Kits for Examination of Metal Surfaces

This device is a set of hardware and software products intended for visualization (video imaging) of the relief and structural heterogeneities of the metal surfaces (traces of mechanical processing, inclusion of non-ferromagnetic materials, and surface flaws in the weld seams).

It comprises a magnetic powder visualizer, an electrochemical etcher, an eddy-current detector, auxiliaries and consumables, and an optical probe with an oblique light source.

The set can be used either as a separate solution for non-/destructive examination of metal surfaces, or together with Regula 7505M or Regula 7517, expanding their functionality.

Intended Objects for Examination

Vehicle identification numbers
Firearms identification numbers
Ammunition identification numbers
Other metal surfaces

Highlighted Features

Nondestructive examination

The magnetic powder visualizer and an eddy-current detector carry out visualization of the relief and structural inhomogeneity of metal surfaces with magnetic properties without removing the lacquer and paint coating.

Advanced examinations

The device is applicable for both nonferromagnetic and ferromagnetic materials.
