Controle Mesure Systemes: Rotating Eddy Current head

15 February 2021

Controle Mesure Systemes, a company with locations in Europe and the U.S. has been designing and manufacturing Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) systems for nearly 35 years. Specialized in Eddy Current and Ultrasound, the company has integrated these two complementary methods in combined test benches. 

Wishing to bring a control solution to each need for each and every customer, Controle Mesure Systemes has designed a rotating Eddy Current head (RotoETscan TRVC) dedicated to the control of wire and parts of small diameters (range from Ø 0.8 to 10 mm). 

This system, which can be easily integrated on a control line, includes a cassette adapted to the diameter of the product. Eddy Current probes installed inside the cassette rotate at high speeds around the product (up to 18,000 rpm). This model allows the detection of longitudinal defects on wires, bars or unit parts with a very high inspection speed (up to 3m/s). 

For the control of wire or continuous products, Controle Mesure Systemes also designs opening Eddy Current probes that allow direct insertion into the production line without having to cut or stop it. These probes are very useful for the continuous control of butt-welded wire coils. The detected defects are punctual and transversal.
