High-field magnetisation measurements at 4.2 K on several U(2)T(2)X (T = Ni, Rh, Pd, Pt; X = In, Sn) compounds have been performed on free and fixed powders up to 57 T. An antiferromagnetic ground state of U(2)Ni(2)Sn is corroborated by metamagnetic transitions at 30, 39 and 51 T. U(2)Rh(2)Sn shows one metamagnetic transition at 21 T and U(2)Pd(2)Sn two metamagnetic transitions at 39 and 45 T. U(2)Pt(2)In shows no metamagnetism up to 57 T, which is in agreement with the non-magnetic ground state of this compound. The short-pulsed measurements up to 57 T are compared with previous results obtained in quasi-static fields up to 35 T.
