When it comes to ferrous metal, magnets are here to assist with many of your common tasks.

 The MAG-MATE® brand of Industrial Magnetics, Inc. offers hundreds of industrial grade magnetic solutions to help you lift, hold, weld, and collect steel items. Lift magnets provide a safe, fast and effective way to lift and position heavy steel plates and parts. Safety and dependability are top priority for our lifting solutions whether it’s a low-cost permanent magnet or a custom cutting table clearing lift system. IMI offers a wide variety of lifting solutions to best suit your applications. Holding and clamping magnets such as IMI’s MBX series clamping blocks securely hold parts during the grinding, finishing, drilling and welding processes with 3 active magnetic faces. These MBX permanent units are sold in pairs and easily turn on and off with a provided hex key. Welding solutions using magnets include industrial strength magnetic grounds and angles (fixed & adjustable) for fast and flexible set-up and fixturing for one time builds or high production environments. Skip the big-box solutions that may have left your workpieces falling to the floor. Our MAG-MATE® brand solutions are designed by experienced magnet engineers for strength and durability.
