    Versatile Magnetic Handling Solutions by the Goudsmit Magnetics Group: Meeting Every Requirement

    Over the past 60 years, Goudsmit has developed and tested an extensive range of magnetic systems with the aim of automating your process. For example:

    Handling:
    • Picking up sheets or steel products in the automotive/robotic industries.
    • Automatic robot handling of flat/formed (and even perforated) steel sheets or thick steel workpieces.
    • Separating the top sheet from a stack: this prevents a robot from grabbing multiple sheets at the same time, which sometimes happens with thin or sticky sheets.
    • Uniform alignment of nails or screws to reduce packaging volume.
    Lifting:
    • Manually picking up small workpieces: this prevents injuries from sharp burrs, and dirty hands (especially useful for repetitive operations).
    • Moving heavy steel objects with a crane, e.g. lifting shafts out of a storage bin or thick steel sheets from a cutting table.
    Transport:
    • Automation of packing lines where tins or glass jars with steel lids are placed in boxes or on pallets.
    • Horizontal, vertical or hanging movement and/or transport of steel products such as tins, lids, sheets, pipes or shafts over larger distances.
    • Horizontal or steeply sloping transport of small, sharp objects such as punching waste, nails or screws without belt wear.
    Fastening:
    • Easily securing moulds or workpieces for welding, grinding, polishing or assembly.

    Extensive Range of Products for Magnetic Handling Industries

    Products to Meet Your Requirements:

    Grippers & Lifting Magnets

    Grippers & Lifting Magnets

    Magnets for lifting and end of arm tooling allow steel products to be picked up manually or automatically. All types are manually, pneumatically, or electrically switchable.

    Sheet Separators

    Sheet Separators

    Magnetic sheet separators separate sticky or oiled steel sheets and prevent two sheets from being picked up at the same time. They ensure a smoothly running production process by ensuring that you pick up the steel sheets one at a time. The permanent magnetic force remains constant throughout the years.

    Magnetic Palletisers

    Magnetic Palletisers

    With palletisation magnets, you pack tins, aerosols, cans and glass jars with steel lids in one go. The magnet holds a layer of products without an energy supply. They are suitable for attachment to a robot arm or gantry crane and help with packing and unpacking in automated processes.

    Orientation Magnets

    Orientation Magnets

    Orientation magnets align long steel parts in the desired position and help to pack your product as compactly as possible.

    Shuttering Magnets

    Shuttering Magnets

    This type of magnet application enables you to quickly create a temporary setup. For example, when you want to fix metal profiles for use as a form while pouring a concrete floor. They also hold steel panels, beams, gates, and moulds in place. This flexible system saves you time, money, and manpower.

    Switchable Welding Magnets

    Switchable Welding Magnets

    Welding magnets are used to temporarily secure steel objects in any desired position. These switchable holding magnets are a quick and secure solution.

    Magnets for Conveying Cans

    Magnets for Conveying Cans

    With magnetic components, you build your own magnetic conveyor system, which you use to transport steel bodies, empty or full tins, lids, crown caps and aerosol cans. The correct magnet type depends on the shape to be transported, the belt type and the belt speed of the conveyor. The ambient conditions in which the transport takes place also play a role.

    Timing Belt Magnetic Conveyors

    Timing Belt Magnetic Conveyors

    A magnetic timing belt transports sheets quickly and with extreme precision to and from tooling machines. This keeps the workpiece position exactly the same between two tooling steps. In this way, a robot places the sheet accurately in the next machine.

    Magnetic Conveyor Roller for Sheets

    Magnetic Conveyor Roller for Sheets

    Magnetic conveyor rollers for sheets are suitable for transporting steel sheets to and from processing machines. They have permanent magnetic force.

    Slide Conveyors

    Slide Conveyors

    Magnetic slide conveyors are scrap conveyors which, because of their closed construction, do not have any moving parts on the outside, as is the case of a conveyor belt. This makes them ideal for conveying sharp steel parts such as punch scrap, recycled materials, drilling swarf, nails, or bolts.

    Feed Conveyors

    Feed Conveyors

    Feed conveyors provide dosed and steeply upward sloping transport of steel parts, such as nails, screws, bolts, or other long steel parts.
