Multifect-EX is a fifth-generation versatile multi-frequency, multi-channel, multi-parameter eddy current comparator for segregation of metallic components and raw stock.
Some typical applications are:
Sorting of bars or components according to alloy
Sorting of fasteners according to hardness
Segregation of forgings as per heat-treat condition
Evaluation of gudgeon pins for case-depth
Regression readout of values ( e.g. Hardness )
Confidence Testing with known good samples
Artificial Neural Network based grouping
Segregation with multiple parameter mixups
Multifect-EX can test parts at up to 32 frequencies at one go. This feature can also help in solving certain problems that cannot be solved at just one frequency. The setup is completely automatic, making the system very easy to operate.
Elliptical thresholds enable more ‘natural’ grouping, covering the spread in signals due to the inevitable differences in metallurgical properties within a group. Conventional rectangular thresholds are also available for simple single frequency applications.
