Tube & Pipe India: Elaborate on the theme and highlight of your exhibit at Tube & Pipe Fair 2023.
Casey Powers: We are featuring some of our new products in ultrasonic testing and eddy current testing. We have the next generation of eddy current tester, spin the tube ultrasonic tester, and phased array ultrasonic testing for full body testing and also weld zone testing for welded tubes. The key highlight is the new technology we are using in eddy current testing and also the phased array weld-zone tester which has been very popular with a lot of our customers. We see a lot of growth, especially in India. That’s why we’re here and it’s one of our primary markets.
TPI: Please tell us in brief about your company’s journey and product & service portfolio.
CP: At MAC®, we manufacture NDT or non-destructive testing equipment, primarily for the primary metals business. We have engineers working with manufacturing and production teams who routinely rely on MAC® experience to choose NDT systems to inspect for flaws and defects in tube and pipe, bar, rod, wire, cable, billets, and parts. Our reputation for high-caliber performance and accuracy is recognized throughout the oil country tubular goods (OCTG), heat exchanger, petrochemical/nuclear, aerospace, medical, and automotive industries as being second to none.
At MAC®, the science of innovation is a critical priority. Our recent breakthroughs include the Echomac® Phased array test system, the Rotoflux® AC flux leakage tester, the 20mm Rotomac® HS Rotary, and the UT test for spinning tubes. In addition, our Remote Pre-Acceptance service now enables clients to view and approve the full operation of the new system from the convenience of their office, which helps to eliminate scheduling conflicts and reduce travel expenses.
TPI: Can you shed some light on your USP?
CP: We provide instruments, systems, and solutions that are recognized the world over as THE standard for NDT. At the core of our comprehensive portfolio of NDT options are Eddy Current (ECT), Magnetic Flux Leakage (MFL), and Ultrasonic (UT) testing equipment. To maximize the NDT process, you need the right equipment and the right people. MAC® combines these two things, and it is more than just a strength, it is our signature. We are truly set apart by our focus on 100 percent customer satisfaction. We partner with our customers to determine what their real needs are and what equipment is right for their project, then configure the product solution that will work best for them.
MAC® also has the unique ability to provide quality service throughout most of the world. Our global network provides a team of industry experts, highly trained engineers, and seasoned field representatives who can understand our customers’ testing needs. These team members, trained in accordance with ASNT requirements, are always available to answer client questions and offer suggestions regarding calibrations, upgrades, installations, and staff training.
