The Magnetest Company began in 1994 as the North and South American
sales representative for Soken Electric Company, Ltd. of Tokyo
Japan for those testing equipments having to do with Electrical
Steel, and its uses such as motors and transformers. In September
1995 it introduced its Automatic Epstein Tester made in the United
States. Then in 1996 it unveiled its Automatic Gamma Tester which
measures steel sheet Taper and Crown to a very high accuracy,
saving substantial cost in labor and savings in steel sheet. Principals
in the company are members of American Society for Testing and
Materials (ASTM) which regulate the Electrical Steel Test Methods
for the majority of the Electrical Steel used in the USA. The
company is one of the largest independent suppliers of this type
equipment; primarily automatic, computer based and amenable to
use with modern statistical processes in manufacturing.
MAGNETEST/SOKEN offers a complete line of electrical steel core
loss (watts/kg) and magnetizing force (amperes/m) testing instruments.
These test actual steel strips, stators, laminations and sheets
to positively predict overheating or malfunction of magnetic devices
due to wrong grades, bad shipments, or improper annealing of electrical
