Industrial Magnetics TransporterIndustrial Magnetics’ patented family of Transporter® LP magnetic end-of-arm tooling is now available with a British Standard Pipe Parallel thread (BSPP) fitting on 3-inch (dia.) models. According to the company, other features include:

  • The magnetic transfer of metal blanks, stampings and parts in automated station-to-station, press-to-press transfer and robotic pick-and-place applications. 
  • Powerful rare earth magnets that positively hold the part during transfer — even during unexpected loss of shop air.
  • Less chances for slipping and shifting of parts due to mill oil coatings, dust, dirt, rust or weld splatter.
  • A short, single burst of shop air to quickly release parts.
  • A reduction over vacuum and suction cups in shop air costs.
  • More options for pick-up points on stamped, perforated and odd-shaped parts.
  • The direct replacement of vacuum cups with minor tooling adjustments.
  • Easy installation into existing air connections on tooling booms or robotic face plates.
  • Suitability for the material-handling industry.
