From the platform of its most successful product ever, IMI introduces a new product to the Transporter® Family, the Transporter® MagVac- a combination of magnetic and vacuum technology.
Like the Transporter® and Transporter® LP - magnetic tooling designed for lifting and holding ferrous steel in stamping, blanking, press-to-press transfer and related applications – the Transporter® MagVac is next-generation technology.
The difference is the incorporation of vacuum technology, which makes the Transporter MagVac the most universal End-Of-Arm-Tooling available. With part-holding values higher than traditional vacuum- and more efficient and accurate than vacuum or grippers- the Transporter® MagVac is the solution that eliminates tool-changeover and costly downtime.
The Transporter® MagVac will lift and hold all shapes and types of steel- from brass and aluminum to ferrous and stainless, perforated, oily or painted. The integrated and patented magnet/vacuum design is million-cycle tested for endurance. When in use on ferrous steel, it incorporates a Fail-Safe feature so that in the event of air loss, parts will not release.
No more replacing vacuum cups every week
No more parts slippage and die damage due to part misplacement
No more dropping parts when there is a loss of shop air
No more dropping parts because of excess mill oil or weld slag
No more tooling change and downtime when a new part shape is in the process stream
For efficient, accurate and longer lasting End-Of-Arm-Tooling that provides a quick return on investment, choose the Transporter® MagVac.
Please Note: The Vent (Part# TPMVVENT) is not necessary if other means of creating a vacuum are in use. The Vent will operate the magnet and the vacuum cup simultaneously when lifting ferrous metal, providing extra lifting power. However, when using the magnet only, a Vent is not necessary. If lifting Non-Ferrous metals, the Vent is required.
