Industrial Magnetics, Inc. has added a new product to their successful line of Magnetic Transporters® for heavy, ferrous metal parts handling; the "Cylinder Actuated" model (TPCA).

Orginally designed to replace vacuum cups, the patented Transporter® utilizes a powerful, Rare Earth, Permanent Magnet Circuit to pick and place sheet metal parts in automated transfers or lift-assist material handling applications and utilizing up to 95% less shop air.

Offering a slim profile, instantaneous pickup and release and requiring no electricity, the Cylinder Actuated Transporter Magnet is ideal for lifting in and out of totes, bins, or other hard to manuever applications such as, components for automotive, lawn/farm equipment, pumps, compressors or motors and fan assemblies.
