Handling magnets are used for transport, transfer, fastening and lifting of ferromagnetic products in the metal, automotive and robot industry. Magnetic handling of products reduces both the time it takes and the number of actions required to automate a process and ensure it proceeds smoothly. To automate these processes, Goudsmit Magnetics Group has developed an extensive range of magnetic systems. Various processes that have been tested handling, lifting, transport and fastening. The features of these are detailed below; Goudsmit Magnetics Group has both permanent magnets and electromagnets. It should be noted that both types of magnets are switchable, however there is an important difference: Permanent magnets can have either monostable or bistable systems.
