Contact Pads and Plates

Prevent arc burning and ensure reliable electrical contact

Our contact pads come in a variety of shapes, sizes and types to make sure your magnetic bench is outfitted correctly for the parts you inspect. Magnaflux contact pads prevent arc burning, and ensure good, reliable electrical contact between the headstock and part. Choose a solid pad if you are inspecting parts with flat ends, pick a braided pad if your parts have rounded or irregular shaped ends.
