New "Double Acting" Transporter offers new options for robotic or press-to-press transfer

For Immediate Release: Posted On 6/29/2009 By Industrial Magnetics, Inc.

The new “Double-Acting” version is the latest addition to Industrial Magnetics, Inc.’s Magnetic Transporter® LP line designed to magnetically transfer steel blanks, stampings, and parts in automated station to station, press-to-press transfer and robotic pick-and- place systems and offer more options for pick-up points on stamped parts, accurate placement on the die, and a significant reduction in shop air consumption and costs over vacuum cups.

Engineered with powerful Rare Earth magnets that positively hold the part during transfer, the new “double-acting” version requires just a short burst of shop air to activate or deactivate the magnet, allowing the magnetic field to be “turned off” and thereby offering ultra precise pickup on the part with minimal air consumption.

Ideal for applications in the Appliance, Automotive, and Office Furniture industries where multiple Transporters® are required, as the “double-acting” version eliminates the need for an accumulator tank and offers more precise pickup with faster cycle times than the original, stand-alone version of the Transporter.

Designed to directly replace vacuum cups with only minor tooling adjustments, the Transporter® LP’s lightweight, low profile design allows for minimal die clearance and can be easily installed to existing air connections on tooling booms or robotic face plates.
