Permanent Magnetic Parts Lifter - MPI Magnet

MPI’s Permanent Magnetic Parts Lifter PMPL Series is designed for ferrous parts and the direct replacement of vacuum cups located on ferrous parts transfer systems.

MPI’s exclusive “Fail Safe” feature is built into each magnet. Once the powerful permanent magnet is engaged, only air pressure in the reverse “off” direction will disengage the unit, even if the airline is disconnected or loses pressure. This process ensures a positive connection between your parts and the working surface of the Permanent Magnetic Parts Lifter.

Powerful rare-earth magnet is activated by air pressure. An air solenoid (provided by customer) controls both on and off operation by connecting flexible airlines to the quick disconnect fittings. Short bursts of air ranging from 40-60 PSI is all that is required to operate the unit.
