Transporter material handling magnets line expands

IMI expands material handling magnet line, offering an electric-free means of movement

02/07/2011


IMI Transporter Cylinder Actuated MagnetsIMI has recently expanded their patented line of magnetic, Cylinder Actuated Transporters (TPCA) for use in place of vacuum cups or grippers when lifting and moving stamped, forged and hydro-formed parts, tubes, castings or complete parts assemblies in manual or automated applications.

Magnetic Transporters are reportedly designed to increase production, provide material handling safety and minimize shop air cost, while allowing effective operation in any orientation and the ability to grasp odd shaped or formed parts.

With the additional models, IMI can now provide a magnetic material handling solution for applications ranging from 26 ga. to 3/4” thick steel, with weights from 5 lbs. to 689 lbs., depending on the size and shape of the part.

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