The D5 is an ultra shallow field, multi-array, pneumatic actuated, magnetic gripper tool specifically designed to excel in material handling on thin sheet metal (< 2.0mm).  The D5 excels where traditional magnets and EPM (Electric Permanent Magnetic) robot grippers, and suction cups cannot get a strong enough grip.

This exciting new industrial robot end-of-arm tooling (EOAT) is ideally suited for lightweight robotic automation processes including press loading/unloading, part de-racking, machine tending, pick and place, robotic picking, or ergonomic lift assist where single-sided work holding enables a robust automation process.  The D5 outpaces other automation solutions with standard sensing options, NAAMS standard mounting, fail-safe operation, and the highest holding force per sq cm on thin sheet metal available today. 


Featuring advanced NAAMS mounting interfaces, the D5 ultra shallow field magnetic gripper increases productivity and outclasses alternatives with its:

  • Industry best holding power per square mm (3x the nearest competitor)
  • De-stack capabilities at 0.6mm
  • Small footprint for locating complicated geometries
  • Flexible mounting capabilities
  • Industry best actuation times under 300ms (faster than EPM)
  • Fail-Safe Operation (parts will not fall during power loss)
  • Available tool ON/OFF Sensing
  • Industry standard G1/8 air ports
  • Zero energy consumption in either the ON or OFF state
  • 100% duty cycle
  • Low Air Pressure Requirement

Competitive Benefits

  • Improved hold force per square centimeter
  • Delivers the most hold force in a small footprint
  • Industry best de-stack capability – ultra shallow field technology enables the D5 to lift a single sheet of 0.6mm thickness from a stack of sheets
  • Simple end-of-arm designs
  • Magswitch is a world leader in magnetic single-sided gripping

  • 1 Determined in laboratory environment on 2” thick SAE1018 Steel with surface roughness 63 micro inches with optimized pole shoes. Many factors contribute to the actual breakaway force and safe working load in each application. Consult a Magswitch Applications Engineer and test the Magswitch in each application before deployment.

  • 2 Tested and Determined with Two SAE1018 Steel Sheets L=200mm W=200mm Thickness=1.5 mm.
  • 3 Values may vary by +/- 5%.
  • 4 Maximum forces listed above are not safe lifting forces. Designer must take into account safety factor when specifying tool. Magswitch recommends SWL = 5:1 for most applications.
