IMI Announces New USA-Made Magnetic Welding Squares
IMI recently announced that their magnetic welding squares are being produced at their Michigan facility.
Industrial Magnetics, Inc. (Boyne City, MI) recently announced that their line of magnetic welding squares, used to hold steel sheet, plate or tubing during the welding process, is now being produced in the United States at their Michigan facility.
Along with moving the production back on-shore, various product improvements were made based on customer feedback while maintaining the same price as the previous imported models. The revised welding squares feature a stronger magnetic holding force and include a large finger hole for easy setup and removal.
Standard through-holes allow for easy mounting and fixturing and the new plated vs. painted steel poles maintain a clean, non-rust surface. Select models also feature covered magnets to reduce fuzz iron build-up and “brake-away” handles for easier removal after welding.
Peter Friedrich, IMI’s strategic accounts manager said, “We are really excited to be offering an American made product for the North American worker. Manufacturing this product in-house gave us the design control we needed to better respond to our customer’s requests.”
