Transfer Multiple Cut Pieces from Burn Tables at Once

The innovative Burn Table Lift Magnet features an extremely powerful and wide magnetic surface area. When activated, a stainless steel stripper pan retracts to engage the steel parts with a very high magnetic holding force. To release, air cylinders push the stripper pan away from the magnetic head to create a gap and break the holding force. Since the system utilizes permanent magnets and does not require a controller, there are no power failure concerns. Standard models include 24 in, 48 in and 120 in designs to accommodate most common plate or sheet sizes.
The air-operated Burn Table Lift Magnet System from Eriez easily and quickly moves multiple parts and cut-outs, and can lift single sheets or 3 in thick plates from a stack for loading.
