Universal WE Multi-Directional Magnetic Wet Bench

The Universal WE magnetic wet bench is multi-direction magnetic wet bench designed to completely magnetize the surfaceof parts up to 35 inches long in a single shot. Potentially cutting inspection time in half because the part can inspected in both directions at once. The Universal WE offers 200 - 2,000 Amps AC for contact shots and 1,500 - 15,000 Amp-turns AC for coil shots. The two outputs are independently adjustable to set each magnetic field, circular or longitudinal.

Key Properties

Magnetizing Current Capacity at Contacts (amps):

AC: 2,000

Maximum Clamping Length: 35.4 in / 90 cm


Faster part processing

  • Double your inspection speed by magnetizing parts in a single shot
  • Fully inspect longer parts, up to 35.4 in / 90 cm, without requiring an auxiliary coil
  • Speed up part processing with a large automated surface shower

Advanced process control

  • Maximize consistency between tests with 500 customer-programmable techniques
  • Prevent accidental and unauthorized alterations with multiple user profiles and varying tiers of control for a range of operator experience levels
  • Receive visual alerts when produced amperage is 90% or less than set amperage

Real-world dependability for minimal downtime

  • Siemens PLC provides reliable controls and off-the-shelf replacements
  • Rely on our industry leading warranty with best in-class service delivered by a global network of trained Magnaflux authorized service centers
  • Minimize downtime with standard spare parts package
