Magnetic grippers

Magnetic grippers serve to handle metal sheets or ferromagnetic workpieces with and without recesses. The FIPA MG series utilizes a combination of electromagnets and permanent magnets and thus increases duty cycles – even for thin and/or alloyed metal sheets, because the residual magnetism is extremely low once the electromagnet is switched off. This solution is extremely energy efficient, since only a short electrical impulse is required for the product release and its operation does not utilize pneumatics.

Magnetic grippers – electrical controlled

  • Safe handling of sheet metal or ferromagnetic workpieces with or without recesses
  • Very high holding force thanks to high-performance permanent magnet
  • Safe holding of the workpiece during power failures
  • NC normally closed
  • Short cycle times for thin and/or alloyed metal sheets thanks to negligible residual magnetism after switching off the magnetic force
  • No compressed air required
  • Very energy-efficient as a short electrical pulse is only required for product release
  • Robust design
  • Indicated holding forces are valid for direct placement, without air gap, on the flat holding surface
