Crack testing using magnetic particle or dye penetrant methods

At Sauter Bachmann, the presence of cracks of gear wheels is checked using a magnetic particle testing method. For non-magnetic materials, a dye penetrant method is used by external partner companies of Sauter Bachmann. The magnetic particle testing method is carried out in accordance with the high NADCAP standard.

The surface cracks in axial and transverse direction are determined by longitudinal and transverse current induction.
