    Jörg Keymer, Software Developer at ROHMANN

    As a family-owned company we work in small teams. Each individual is in charge right from the start and, according to his or her expertise, is responsible for a wide range of tasks. Therefore, the learning curve is steep for everyone in the team. We always work cross-departementally and benefit from the most modern hardware and software – but most of all from each other. Our R&D department is the heart of ROHMANN. Working with us means always facing new challenges in eddy current testing.

    Dr. Aschwin Gopalan, Head of Development at ROHMANN

    I have been working in sales at Rohmann for more than 15 years and have expanded my area of responsibility over the years. At ROHMANN there is no working according to standard scheme, because no ( testing ) task is like another. That is the reason why we often develop customer-specific solutions. Each of these technical challenges is also a personal opportunity for me to grow professionally. Working in an international business environment I find very inspiring. We offer our test equipment, systems and special solutions worldwide and work closely with our international sales partners on all continents.

    Mobile rail processing using rotary planer on railway tracks and at switches
    However, efficiency in switch processing also results from joint preliminary acceptance of the switches by the customer and contractor. This includes determining the geometric conditions and checking the material-side damage to the switch, determining the processing lengths A, B and C after the beginning and end of the switch, deriving the construction requirements and determining the processing time separately for main and side track. Proof of the HC-free condition of machined rails Similar to the grinding and milling machines and the planer, the D-HOB 2500 is also currently equipped with eddy current testing technology. The test system developed by the companies Rohmann GmbH, Frankenthal and Mevert Maschinenbau GmbH, Lauenhagen with the cooperation of Schweerbau consists of - one sensor carrier per rail, - two test sensors per sensor carrier, - an industrial eddy current tester type Elotest PL500, - a data server PC, - a terminal PC with visualization software and printer. The sensor carriers can be lowered and raised during the machining process. They position themselves automatically, are guided along the running edge and are suitable for soft ground. The inspection is carried out in the tracks 9.2 mm and 17.9 mm from the running edge. The maximum test speed is 20 km/h. The testing devices are calibrated on workdays according to customer specifications.

    Non-destructive testing with eddy current – parts and components of turbochargers
    Parts and components of turbochargers are exposed to the highest loads during operation. The turbocharged engines used today are dependent on the operation of high-precision and reliable turbocharging technology at low displacement and high speeds.  A component that is subject to particularly high stress is the so-called compressor wheel (Fig. 1, red frame). One of the most highly stressed zones of these compressor wheels is in the area of the central bore, which connects the wheel with the shaft of the turbocharger (Fig. 2; red frame). After a damage case in which a breakage of the wheel in this critical area led to the failure of the turbocharger, a test procedure using eddy current technology was developed in cooperation with Rohmann GmbH. The publication of the article was made possible by close cooperation with Mrs. Dipl.-Ing. Angela Au (Head of Materials Engineering; PRÄWEST) and Mr. Dipl.-Wi. Stephan Reich (Head of Quality Assurance; PRAE-TURBO GmbH & Co.KG)

    Digital eddy current testing ten times faster
    Eddy current methods are not always fast enough for high speed non-destructive testing applications. Digital instrumentation technology from Rohmann, Frankenthal, Germany, is capable of breaking the previous speed limit. As a result, high-resolution testing at the highest speeds is now possible with just one single device.

    Rohmann moves in the Gewerbepark Nord
    Frankenthal-based Rohmann GmbH, manufacturer of eddy current testing equipment and systems, is about to move: In October 2008, the company, which employs 65 people, plans to move its headquarters from Rudolf-Diesel-Strasse to a new building in the Gewerbepark Nord. Managing partner Jürgen Rohmann estimates the cost of the investment (including the purchase of land) at 8 million euros. The business with eddy current testing technology has developed very positively, especially in recent years. In 2007, the highly profitable family company reported a profit after tax of 1.5 million euros on sales of around 8 million euros; 2008 is expected to be a similar success. Rohmann considers itself one of the leading manufacturers in the industry with its special technology, which is in great demand, particularly in aviation and among car manufacturers for the testing of materials.

    Rail inspection at speed 200 km/h
    Frankenthal-based Rohmann GmbH plans to market a new analysis technology worldwide and has identified a large market for this technology. The company's CEO Jürgen Rohmann announced that the company will initially equip a test train of the Bahn AG with the new so-called scor technology. The company will then market the method worldwide. The durability of tracks is estimated at 30 to 50 years; the demand for reliable testing technology is high. "Non-destructive materials testing" is what Rohmann's equipment makes possible. Eddy current testing technology can be used to examine all electrically conductive and at the same time magnetized materials. For this purpose, the test object is exposed to the effect of an electromagnetic alternating field.
