What is Non-Destructive Testing?
The Burke Porter Group is a leader in the design, manufacture, and supply of intelligent and innovative machinery solutions for the metals industry. Our smart machines ensure the highest levels of quality for strip and sheet used in automotive, appliance, aerospace, and many more applications, and our automated control systems offer high throughput and efficient, economical operation. Our roll inspection systems are widely used all over the world by roll manufacturers and roll users in the steel and aluminum industry.
We provide advanced automated non-destructive testing (NDT) technology, including Eddy Current Technology, Surface Wave Technology and Ultrasonic Technology, along with our software platform, LRI. Our solutions can detect surface (cracks and bruises), subsurface (cracks, debonding, and inclusions) defects within the roll, and provide the necessary data for immediate go-no go decision making. Our roll inspection service program provides maintenance, calibration, and training with guaranteed availability of spare parts and service engineers.
Electrical Discharge Texturing
BPG brands supply spark erosion technique (texturing technology) for Electrical Discharge Texturing (EDT) machines. Our smart machines ensure the highest levels of quality for steel and aluminum sheets which are used for automotive and appliance applications. Besides other patented technologies, we are utilizing first-of-kind linear motors to control electrode movement for high-end EDT machines. This technology ensures a uniform roll surface and a maximum number of peaks (PC).
Roll Grinding Machines
Our roll grinder process control (GPC) systems have been used to modernize the grinding machines of almost all manufacturers, boosting their efficiency, production volume, and productivity. Our references include mechanical and electrical modernization. We are capable to supply complete control systems, electrical cabinets, drives and roll measuring system, along with mechanical revamps, bringing the grinders up to modern standards. The productivity of the roll grinders can also benefit from our first class service and long-term spare parts supply.
