Magnetic Products, Inc Celebrates 43 years of Invention in Processing Equipment
Magnetic Products, Inc (MPI), an industrial processing equipment manufacturer, is proud to be celebrating its 43rd anniversary last week. Born out of a desire to create a company that put its people first and created a culture of continuous improvement, Magnetic Products, Inc, has been committed to excellence, innovation, and customer satisfaction since 1981.
MPI President, Michael Hadjinian says, “This milestone is a testament to the importance of treating your people with respect and valuing the contributions of every person in your organization. We would not have been around for more than four decades if we didn’t think first about our team.”
Over the years, Magnetic Products, Inc, has grown from a modest startup to a market leader in the magnetic separation industry, leading the development of new products and making important contributions to the food safety industry by improving metal control technology. Just two years after its founding, the company brought the world’s first quick-clean permanent magnetic separators to the market with the self-cleaning drawer magnet. Now industry standard, this achievement was one of many in the history of the company.
Now, MPI has developed the world’s first sensor-enabled magnetic separation system that gives operators the ability to monitor the saturation level of their magnets without shutting down their processing line.
“The Intell-I-Mag® system is a revolutionary product,” says Kyle Rhodes, Vice President of Business Development at MPI. “It has the power to change how companies approach their entire metal control strategy and give the industry valuable data on the effectiveness of magnetic separators at different saturation levels. We are currently relying on strength ratings of magnets that are shut down and clean – this live processing information is brand new data and can help us to set the industry standard for the number, strength, location, and cleaning frequency of magnetic separators required for optimal protection from metal contamination.”
Hadjinian adds, “That’s the great thing about focusing on having great people – you can do things no one else can. No one else is making an intelligent magnet, just like no one was making a quick clean magnet until we did – and now look at them, they’re everywhere. When you have the best people, and you treat them well, they will create things no one ever thought were possible.”
In addition to magnetic separation equipment, MPI also engineers and manufactures a full line of material handling solutions including scrap shakers, beltless magnetic conveyors, part out conveyors, and more.
“Across all our products, we focus on creating solutions for problems our customers are facing,” adds Rhodes. “Just like our magnetic separators address unplanned downtime for magnet maintenance, our turnkey scrap and material handling systems are designed to run 24/7/365 virtually maintenance free to provide continuous scrap and parts movement to make the process more efficient and safer.”
Magnetic Products, Inc’s commitment to innovation has been at the heart of its growth. With a strong focus on customer needs and industry trends, the company has consistently developed cutting-edge solutions that address customer challenges and deliver continuous value to the industry.
ECO-FLOW | HARCO BRAKE COMPONENTS
When a manufacturer suspects that a drilling operation could cause plugs inside a precision brake component, he knows that the resulting damage will be more costly and require greater action than a simple phone call . . .
SHAKERS | RADAR INDUSTRIES
Like any maintenance supervisor at a busy stamping plant, 30-year manufacturing veteran Mike De Vitt's goal at Radar Industries in Warren, Michigan, is to keep his presses up and running . . .
SHAKERS | TOLEDO TOOL AND DIE
Toledo Tool and Die (TTD), of Toledo OH, approached MPI looking for an improved method to remove scrap from their stamping press. MPI recommended that TTD consider MPI’s M-50 electric shaker . . .
MINI FREE FLOW | GLOBAL FOOD PROCESSOR
When raw materials arrive at a food plant, they can contain many types of contaminants, including metals. Metals find their way into raw materials from the time of harvest through the many material handling processes needed to turn them into a product ready for packaging . . .
BLM | MAJOR MANUFACTURER
Removal of scrap metal is a vital, constant and costly function faced by plant managers worldwide. Untimely removal of scrap can endanger workers and damage machinery . . .
MAGNETIC CHUTE | MAJOR CO-PACKER
Ensuring that there is no cross-contamination, coupled with dustless operation were their biggest concerns . . .
