IMI Designs Custom Magnetic Solution for Perforated Plate

For Immediate Release: Posted On 2/28/2013 By Industrial Magnetics, Inc.

A manufacturer of playground equipment, concerned with employee saftey and fatigue, turned to Industrial Magnetics, Inc. for help in devising a magnetic solution for lifting perforated plate into a press brake.

The operation had previously required two operators to manually lift the perforated plate from the stack and manipulate it overhead into the press.

Utilizing their patented Transporter® technology which, unlike vaccumm cups, is capable of grasping odd- shaped or perforated steel parts, IMI designed a custom solution that integrated six Transporters into a spreader system with an operator control handle.

Now, a single operator is able to safely and efficiently handle the load from start to finish with minimal exertion.
