Posted On 3/13/2013 By Industrial Magnetics, Inc.
Industrial Magnetics, Inc. has expanded their line of
TransporterŪ LP magnetic end-of-arm tooling, designed
to magnetically transfer metal blanks, stampings &
parts in automated station-to-station, press-to-press
transfer and robotic pick-and-place applications.
Engineered with powerful Rare Earth magnets that
positively hold the part during transfer, even during
unexpected loss of shop air, the TransporterŪ family
greatly reduces slipping and shifting, offers more
options for pick-up points on stamped, perforated and
odd-shaped parts and a significant reduction in shop
air costs over vacuum and suction cups.
Now available in 5 different configurations,
including Standard, Non-Rotating(NR), Destacking(DS),
Double-Acting(DA) and Extra-Strong(ES) models, the
TransporterŪ LPs are designed to directly replace
vacuum cups with only minor tooling adjustments and
can be easily installed to existing air connections on
tooling booms or robotic face plates. Ideal for
applications in the Appliance, Automotive, and Office
Furniture industries, as well as numerous other
material handling applications, the TransporterŪ LP is
next-generation sheet handling technology.
Standard products are available to order online on
the IMI Transporter Magnets Page, along
with a full line of accessories and fittings such as
adhesive pads, urethane boots and BSPP fittings.
IMI also specializes in custom designs, providing
magnetic TransporterŪ product for coil lifting, banded
material handling and other challenging applications.
