Magnetic conveyor belts are used for lifting changes or partial retention of ferrous products. They can be used in tilting for almost vertical applications and even to “pick” upside down. The resistance and size of the magnetic field in each magnetic conveyor are designed according to your application.
Magnetic conveyor systems can increase the production and product flow of the factory, as well as ensuring industrial safety because they can improve position control for ferrous materials moving down your production line. When working with ferrous materials such as stampings and presses, a conveyor that uses industrial magnets can help prevent the build-up of parts in machining, as well as avoid costly repairs.
Of course, due to their characteristics, they keep materials firm and in motion, virtually eliminating the problem of clogging and reducing the need for manual handling, ensuring that operators are not at risk of accidents or critical situations.
No side rails or side cleaners are required on magnetic conveyor belts because the magnetic field holds ferrous material in the center of the belt. Scrap or small, sharp parts are stored under the belt, which could cause belt damage and downtime.
Most components made of all or part of the steel can be transported, raised, lowered, rotated or oriented by magnetic forces during fabrication. Stationary magnets mounted behind or underneath a moving belt provide:
Magnetic conveyor belts are today one of the safest ways to control the positioning of ferrous parts for further processing. These magnetic tape conveyors are available in a wide variety of configurations.
Permanent and electromagnetic rails are used below the belt to attract ferrous metals to the surface. A variety of designs are available.
These material handling instruments, which can be adapted to different types of industries, have characteristics that make them unique, such as:
Powerful permanent magnets are transported under a non-magnetic stainless steel sliding platform to move and transport ferrous metal objects. The hermetic and sealed conveyor housing can be fully immersed in the machine’s reservoir tanks and the self-adjusting internal collection system eliminates the need for maintenance.
