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.

Assembly/Body-In-White
Automotive Applications
Improve throughput by applying Magswitch Automation tools in your Assembly and Body-In-White processes. Magswitch grippers offer the versatility and simplicity of suction cups, while maintaining the reliability and safety of traditional power clamps. Repeatable mounting allows for precision locating of components and fast mean time to repair (MTTR). For an advanced solution, apply smart technology to enable on-tool part present and double blank detection.

Ergonomic Lift Assist
Heavy Lifting - Heavy Industry
Improve your operator lifting capabiliies with our Ergonomic Lift Assist Solutions. Safety is critical in any process and especially true when operators must handle heavy components. Zero gravity lift assists combined with Magswitch tools allow a single operator to handle large loads without breaking a sweat and perform repetitive operations. This reduces the chance of workplace injuries and improves overall efficiency.

Sheet Separation
De-Stacking Application
Our switchable magnetic sheet fanners provide a faster and safer alternative to separate ferromagnetic sheets. The magnetic field is transferred to the steel blanks which take on the magnetic polarity causing sheets to repel from each other. Apply the Magswitch sheet fanner to the side of any stack of blanks or thin steel components and watch the top layers separate for easy de-stacking. These tools reduce workplace injuries inherent with opera-tion of traditional always-on sheet fanners.

Machine Tending/Pick and Place
Heavy Industry Application
Multi-head designs keep machines running and help reduce cycle time. Pick and place and machine tending operations can be performed significantly faster when replacing mechanical grippers, power clamps or suction cups. Custom pole shoe accessories provide tailored locating features to improve holding force and securely grip components of all geometries.

Press Line/Stamping
Heavy Industry Application
Stamping processes can be performed faster and more efficiently using Magswitch products. Magswitch products can handle lubricated sheet metal blanks more effectively than suction cups by gripping through the oil. This reduces downtime from slipping or dropped parts. Improved cycle times are acheived with fast actuation times of 0.3 seconds. Air consumption is reduced by 90% and even more when compared with vacuum!

TrankTek Automation

“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.”
