Industrial Magnetics Transporter® LP Magnetic End-of-Arm Tooling

Low-Profile Magnets for End-of-Arm Tooling.

Posted: March 31, 2022


Transporter® LP magnetic end-of-arm tooling from Industrial Magnetics Inc. (IMI) allows for minimal die clearance and can be easily installed to existing air connections on tooling booms or robotic face plates. Transporter LP magnets are designed to directly replace vacuum cups with only minor tooling adjustments. 

Ideal for applications in the appliance, automotive, and office furniture industries as well as numerous other material handling applications, the Transporter LP is next-generation sheet handling technology. It only requires a short, single burst of shop air to quickly release parts and is available in three standard sizes with the strongest unit holding up to 162 lbs. Included in the LP line is the TPLP50, a low-profile 5-inch Transporter that is ideal for lifting thin sheets. It is also available with a Destacking Option that features a special magnetic circuit designed to destack metal sheets as thin as 0.030 inch (22 gauge).

Every Transporter product provides more options for pick-up points on stamped, perforated and odd-shaped parts, and a significant reduction in shop air costs over vacuum and suction cups. Transporters also offer more accurate placement on the die and quicker cycle times for increased production. Each is million-cycle-tested for endurance and incorporates a fail-safe feature that, in the event of air loss, prevents the magnet from releasing ferrous parts. IMI specializes in custom designs, providing Transporter products for coil lifting, banded material handling and other challenging applications. A full line of accessories and fittings is available; standard list prices range from $372 to $1,214 per unit.
