Castle Rock, Colo., Nov. 6, 2019 – Master Magnetics, Inc. (The Magnet Source®) will feature its effective magnetic solutions for material handling, workholding, cleanup and safety for manufacturing professionals at FABTECH 2019, booth #A3175.
Welding and High Heat Solutions
Designed to keep both hands free to safely work on the project at hand, welding magnets provide an ideal fast and accurate set up. Strong magnets securely hold metal objects in place for perfectly aligned edges.
On/Off magnetic welding squares provide additional flexibility pre- and post-welding, allowing the user to determine when to engage with the magnet. Easy to use with pre-tapped holes for versatile mounting, just place these powerful on/off magnets on two mating steel surfaces to accurately position material for welding.
A simple push of the handle allows users to turn the handle to the ‘on’ position and secure for working. A reverse turn disengages the magnet and allows for safe storage. Made with powerful neodymium, the magnets have a flat pound pull ranging from 150 to 1,000 lb.
Heavy-Duty Neodymium Lifting Magnets provide extraordinary strength in a compact size, ensuring safety and speed for lifting heavy loads. Designed to lift both flat and round ferrous metal items, they are ideal for handling steel plates and similar items in machine shops, warehouses and industrial processing plants.
Lifting Magnets are permanently magnetized, and do not require electricity to operate. Work pieces can be safely loaded and unloaded with the simple on/off lever and locking mechanism.
The magnets are available in five models with flat lift ratings of 220, 660, 1,320, 2,200 and 4,400 lb.; round lift ratings are 50 percent of the flat ratings. For safety, the actual breakaway force is 3.5 times greater than the maximum lift ratings.
Heavy-Duty Magnetic Bulk Parts Lifters allow for easy transferring of bulk metal pieces including nails, screws, nuts, washers, eyebolts or other ferrous metal items. The heavy-duty magnet attracts any nearby ferrous metal parts, then a fingertip pull on the easy-to-use release bar drops the load into the desired location, ensuring a fast and safe transfer of sharp metal parts.
Designed to assist with clean-up, Magnetic Retrieving Batons are innovative, powerful tools for removing fine metallic filings, turnings or shavings (also known as swarf) created by cutting tools and machinery from wet or dry environments.
The batons have a non-corrosive, stainless steel housing and are constructed with neodymium magnets to maximize holding power. The unique shape allows for easy pickup near walls, corners, and many other hard-to-reach places.
Tool Holding and Storages
With the popularity of mobile tooling and work stations, Master Magnetics continues to provide valuable, reliable and unique options for manufacturing.
Magnetic Tool Holders keep workshops, jobsites and manufacturing plants organized. The heavy-duty neodymium assemblies come in a variety of widths and are configured to mount on both ferrous and non-ferrous surfaces. With a pull force up to 30 lb. per square inch, the Magnetic Tool Holders are a simple, ideal way to keep necessary tools close at hand during the fabricating or manufacturing process.
Twenty-seven round base magnetic assemblies feature threaded bases or hooks, and provide a range of mounting and holding options for industrial and manufacturing industries.
The offerings include:
- Grade 42 neodymium male and female threaded assemblies
- Grade 42 neodymium J hooks
- Rubber coated neodymium male and female threaded assemblies
Additional tool holding offerings include tool holders, parts trays and magnetic assemblies. Tools and equipment can be stored and retrieved easily with magnetic assemblies that are repositionable and available in a range of strengths, sizes and finishes.
Magnetic Parts Trays keep metal parts and tools close at-hand during the workflow process. Magnetic trays are ideal for manufacturing and fabricating plants where small, ferrous metal parts may be easily misplaced. The magnet trays come with a rubber coated magnet on the bottom to protect surfaces and work in any position: flat, sideways or inverted.
