    Pneumatic automated fanner magnets (also known as fanning magnets) utilize one of the basic laws of magnetics: like poles repel and opposites attract. By inducing “like” magnetic fields into a stack of steel sheets or plates, repelling forces are created from sheet to sheet, forcing them to separate. When a stack is positioned, the magnet is then turned on and sheeting fanning occurs, requiring no operator interface with the magnets.
