ELOTEST\PL650 with Flexitest


Flexible and precise 3-axis Eddy Current inspection system for the detection of cracks and grinding burn, yet adjustable to your needs. System n-dect, Test Instrument Rohmann GmbH


ELOTEST PL650 RC in an air-conditioned control cabinet, display and operation via a 21“ touch display. Hard- and software for the operation and the support are integrated by means of a remote access


3D axis movement – The kinematics of the probe make a pivoting angle of 145° possible, simultaneously interpolating with regard to the feed and advance motion, all component shapes can be captured through flexible G-code programming


Compact and modular system – The automated testing process starts after the test object has been inserted and the test object is clamped into a precision chuck and set into a highly accurate rotation


Precision chuck for clamping the test object – clamp the test object either manually or automatically as desired, to increase your process reliability and to offer yourself the possibility to test fully automatically, with integration in robotic cells


New rapid changeover – the testing probe can be replaced in no time at all, the comprehensive system and sensor monitoring system ensures the highest test reliability

Frequently asked questions

What is eddy current testing?

Eddy current testing can be used to check objects made of electrically conductive materials for integrity, composition and tempering condition or also for geometric dimensions. Eddy current testing is based on the physics of electromagnetic fields.

How is eddy current generated?

A current-carrying electrical conductor is surrounded by a circular magnetic field (vortex field). If the straight conductor wire is now wound into a circular conductor loop, the vortex-like field lines overlap in such a way that they form a magnetic dipole (with a north/south pole structure).

What does penetration depth mean?

In principle, eddy current testing can be classified as a surface testing method. Depending on the method, the induced eddy currents are concentrated on a more or less thin layer close to the surface. The strongest eddy currents flow directly at the surface. Therefore, the maximum test sensitivity can be achieved there.

What are probes?

The art of probes development consists in the realisation of a sensor construction that brings the required magnetic field (and thus the eddy current field) to the ‚test location‘ in the workpiece with the required test frequency, in the optimum alignment and required strength, while always minimising undesirable effects as far as possible.

Which probes are used?

Basically, there are two main groups of probes: flow sensors and tactile probes. In the case of through-flow probes, a distinction is made between: External pass-through sensor, which encloses the test object and is guided through it (e.g. rod testing with comprehensive test coils) and internal pass-through sensor, which is enclosed by the test object, i.e. the sensor is guided through the test object (e.g. in internal pipe testing). Pass-through sensors always detect a complete circumferential section of the test object, outside or inside.

What test frequency is needed?

When selecting the test frequency for eddy current testing, consider the specific requirements of the application and the sensor to be used. The recommended frequency range for the sensor should be taken from the manufacturer’s sensor data sheet.
