Steels used in production are getting lighter and more durable requiring the use of new industrial automation and material handling technologies to manufacture components. One such technology is the high-temperature press. Handling parts after the forming operation takes a toll on traditional grippers. Magswitch tools can take the heat and abuse of the most grueling operation. Our tools have replaced traditional grippers that require replacement every shift. The Magswitch solution significantly reduced downtime and 4 years later is still running today.
Features & Benefits
- Handling of hot (300°C) stamped parts out of the press
- Replacing suction cups and mechanical clamps
- No part ejectors are required in dies
- Still no failures after 4 million + cycles
In addition to groundbreaking products, Magswitch offers the expertise and resources to assist customers with their design and application challenges. To achieve the best performance for contact one of our knowledgeable sales representatives for advice on fixtures, pole shoes, guarding, and magnet designs.
If you need more than a design, we’ve got you covered 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 Finite Element Analysis (MFEA), a magnetic analysis to confirm holding force and validate pole shoe designs. Magswitch prides itself on having a team of engineers ready to handle any application. Many factors determine the performance of a magnet, and all should be accounted for before selecting your tool.
