Magnetic End Effectors

These systems are ideal for moving large steel components like sheet metal, automotive or construction parts, machine dies and hydraulic cylinders. As long as the item is magnetic, a magnet end lifter is the most effective choice of an end effector. Magnetic end of arm tooling devices are most often used in manufacturing and automotive industries where the use of metal parts is common.

Magnetic grippers are ideal when you want to pick up, place or position flat, steel products. The applications are very diverse, such as:

  • pick-and-place of steel parts
  • handling perforated sheets
  • unstacking workpieces from crates (bin picking)
  • positioning sheets in presses
  • stacking or unstacking hot baking tins
