Transporter® Switch Series (TPS) Magnets are ideal for use where vacuum cups and grippers are typically used for lifting and moving steel sheets, blanks, stamped parts and complete assemblies in automated press-to-press transfer or robotic "pick and place" applications. They are perfect for clean room environments, as there is NO dirty air exhausted to the atmosphere.

Powerful Rare Earth magnets positively hold the parts during transfer, greatly reducing the chance of slipping and shifting of your part due to oily coatings. A 5/3 directional control valve controls the "grip/release" function of the magnet. Easy to retrofit on existing tooling, the TPS Magnetic Transporters offer instantaneous pick-up and release - increasing production speeds and operating effectively in any orientation.

To protect the surface finishes of parts during pickup and transfer, an optional "low-skid" version with a non-marring contact ring is also available.

Features and Benefits:

  • Uses less air than vacuum cups
  • Outlasts vacuum cups in most applications
  • Reduces noise
  • Grasps odd shaped or perforated parts
  • Will not drop parts if system air-loss occurs
  • Maximum operating temperature 140°F (60°C)
  • Destacks without double-blanking when the appropriate magnet is selected for the application
  • Double Acting

Optional Equipment:

  • V-brackets to keep rounds or 90° shapes centered on the magnet. Made of UHMW to provide non-marring contact.
  • Apple core mount
  • Ball mount
  • 3/8" NPT mount
