Applications with magnets for handling, lifting, transporting and fixing

Magnets help you automate various processes.

Magnets for handling:
  • Automatic positioning of flat/formed or perforated steel sheets, or thick steel workpieces.
  • Separation of the top sheet of a stack. This prevents a robot from taking several sheets - thin or adhesive - at the same time.
  • Uniform alignment of nails or screws to reduce packaging volume.
  • Manual picking up of small workpieces. This is especially useful for repetitive operations. It prevents dirty hands and injuries from sharp burrs.
Magnets for lifting:
  • Moving heavy steel objects with a crane. For instance, lifting shafts from a storage bin or thick steel sheets from a cutting table.
Magnets for transport:
  • Automation of packaging lines: putting tins or glass jars with a steel lid in boxes or on pallets.
  • Horizontal, vertical of hanging movement or transport of steel products such as tins, lids, sheets, pipes and shafts over larger distances.
  • Horizontal or steeply sloping removal or transport of small, sharp objects such as punching waste, nails or screws. Without belt wear.
Magnets for fixing:
  • Easily securing moulds or workpieces for welding, grinding, polishing or assembly.
