Lighter, Faster, Stronger
Offering unique capabilities and significant improvements to end of arm tooling, pick-and-place, body-in-white and many other applications, the powerful and lightweight tools in our automation line make it possible to implement magnets where they weren’t previously applied. Magswitch can replace vacuum cups and traditional pin clamps which impact operating costs through high energy consumption and downtime. Magswitch is rapidly being deployed as a platform technology by major global OEMs and Tier One Suppliers in Europe, Asia and North America. If you handle or fabricate steel using automation, you many find solutions with Magswitch that you never knew were possible.
“I installed these tools in half of the time as traditional clamps due to the NAAMS mounting scheme, and single sided holding.” says Mark Reich, Trantek’s lead mechanical builder. “This is a revolutionary way to solve the age old problem of how to poka-yoke the previous operation.” says Fred Leisham, Tranktek’s vice president. “Magswitch’s support sets it appart. Not many product companies offer real-world solutions to real-world problems anymore. The experience of Magswitch is truly appreciated.”
In addition to groundbreaking products, Magswitch offers the expertise and resources to assist customers with their design and application challenges. Contact one of our knowledgeable sales representatives for advice on fixture, pole shoe, guarding and multiple magnet designs to achieve the best performance possible for your application. If you need more than a design, we’ve got you covered in the fabrication department as well—at a fraction of the cost of a machine shop, Magswitch can help you customize a range of components to expand the usability of your tool.
Magswitch also offers ANSYS magnetic analysis to confirm holding force and validate pole shoe designs. Magswitch prides itself on having one of the most knowledgeable distribution networks and a team of engineers to handle any application presented. Many factors determine the performance of a magnet and all should be accounted for before selecting your tool.
