In Booth B-7451, the new air-operated Burn Table Lift Magnet System from Eriez® (Erie, PA) easily and quickly moves multiple parts or cut-outs up and off of burn tables. With a powerful magnetic circuit design, this advanced transfer system can also lift single sheets or plates up to 3 in thick from a stack to load the table. This system improves productivity and creates a safer work environment by eliminating manual handling of multiple parts and the need for operators to climb on burn tables. It can positively and significantly impact a shop’s bottom line through reduced labor and table downtime. The Burn Table Lift Magnet System features an innovative design with 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.
Because the Burn Table Lift Magnet 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.
