Magnetic Analysis Corp. Celebrates 85 Years

ELMSFORD, NY—Magnetic Analysis Corp. is celebrating 85 years of designing and supplying innovative inspection instruments and systems for metal manufacturers throughout the world.

Founded in 1928 in Long Island City, NY at a time when testing for quality purposes usually meant laboratory sampling techniques which essentially destroyed or altered part of the product being tested, MAC began working with electromagnetic techniques to nondestructively test steel bars without altering the product.  After six years of development work, MAC introduced the first successful bartester to identify cracks in steel bars in a mill in 1934. Since then, the company has set the standard for innovative NDT technology for metal bar, tube and parts, with rotary eddy current testers, phase gating, pulsed eddy current, polar presentation, fully digitized test instrumentation, vivid color presentations, rotary ultrasonic testers, advanced flux leakage inspection and much more. 

“With the increasingly demanding specifications that our customers must meet, MAC has developed test systems to meet the stringent requirements of API, ASTM, EN, DIN and other standards organizations, allowing manufacturers to improve their quality and ship more products, be they oil country tubular goods, nuclear heat exchanger tubing, bar for the automotive industry, wire for medical use, or other critical applications”, says MAC President and CEO Joseph Vitulli.

MAC’s primary research and development, production, and corporate headquarters, are located in Elmsford, New York, USA, with additional manufacturing and laboratory test facilities in Boardman, Ohio.  MAC’s subsidiary, Magnetic Analysis Nordic, which has just recently expanded into a new larger building in Östersund, Sweden, provides research and development as well as manufacturing capabilities. An extensive staff of field engineers and experienced representatives provide support and installation services for customers in Europe, North and South America, Eastern Europe, Russia, India, China, Southeast Asia and South Korea.

Additional MAC subsidiaries are located in the UK, Italy and Australia, along with a representative office in China.
