Westerns' Permanent Magnet Yokes are offered in 2 configurations: WM-5LT and WM-5C. The WM-5C lift over 70 lbs (32 Kg) when new and the WC-5LT over 60 lbs (27.5 Kg), and after years of use will settle at their certified lift of 50 lbs (23 Kg).
Western Instruments offers 2 models in the WM-Series of Permanent Magnet Yokes. These models consist of both Hinged Frame and Cable Type configurations, so the inspector’s preference is assured. Permanent Magnet Yokes are a great convenience in Magnetic Particle Inspection, due to their complete portability, as no electricity is required. All WM-Series Yokes utilize Rare Earth Magnet Cartridges specifically manufactured to our high-performance needs. WM-Series Yokes lift over 60 Pounds, and with recharging not being necessary, the minimum lift of 50 pounds (23 Kg) is assured for years.
The WM-5LT is a Hinged Frame unit, equipped with Rotating Contact Feet, which easily permits the inspector to maximize the contact area between the Dual Contact Surfaces on the pole pieces and the workpiece. This unit has a field replaceable magnet cartridge, in the unlikely event of a failure. The WM-5LT is a lightweight alternative.
The WM-5C is our Cable Type Permanent Magnet Yoke. The Coated Cable allows a great deal of flexibility to easily permit maximum contact area between the Non-Ferrous contact surface and the workpiece. The Hand Grip is Ergonomically designed for operator comfort, with provisions for easy removal off the workpiece.
All WM-Series Yokes are delivered with a Calibration Certificate and Operators Manual.
