Beam Handling

Beam Handling

Magswitch supplies a compact, lightweight solution for the robotic automation material handling of relatively thin industrial beams. Different robotic arm end of arm tooling (EOAT) designs are utilized for handling single beams as well as multiple beams from a vertical hanging position to a horizontal conveyor. Common tools throughout the production line allow for a reduction in spare part inventory and overall expenses. Consider the power of Magswitch on your next industrial project.

I-Beam Handling
