Magnetic Analysis Corporation (MAC), a leader in nondestructive testing, is celebrating 90 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 usually meant “sampling” procedures that destroyed or altered the product being tested, MAC developed electromagnetic techniques to “nondestructively” test steel bars without modifying the product. In 1934, MAC introduced the first successful tester to identify cracks in steel bars in a production mill.
Today, operating on an international scale, MAC continues to find innovative ways to help tube, bar, wire, and parts producers meet increasingly demanding specifications for quality. “Using our unique ability and experience with multiple technologies, including eddy current, ultrasonic, phased array, and flux leakage, we don’t just sell a product, we sell a solution – a test solution that is based on the customer’s product, mill configuration, specifications, applications, budget and other specific needs” says Dudley Boden, MAC’s President and CEO.
Boden continued by saying that “as we celebrate this 90-year milestone, we are renewing our longstanding dedication to customer service, while at the same time focusing on an exciting future for NDT with new technologies and applications.”
Three facilities form the backbone of the company: MAC’s ISO 9001-2015 certified manufacturing and engineering headquarters in Elmsford, NY; a manufacturing and ISO/IEC 17025:2005 laboratory-certified plant in Boardman, Ohio; and Magnetic Analysis Nordic’s manufacturing plant in Östersund, Sweden.
With the support of its Subsidiaries, Field Engineers and Representatives, MAC serves customers throughout Europe, Scandinavia, Russia, South America, India, Korea, China and Australia.
