Master Magnetics Provides Wide Range of Magnetic Solutions for Manufacturing at IMTS 2018
August 30, 2018
Master Magnetics, Inc. (The Magnet Source®) will feature its effective magnetic solutions for material handling, workholding, cleanup and safety for manufacturing professionals at IMTS 2018, booth W-432280.
Heavy-Duty Neodymium Lifting Magnets provide extraordinary strength in a compact size, ensuring safety and speed for lifting heavy loads. Designed to lift both flat and round ferrous metal items, they are ideal for handling steel plates and similar items in machine shops, warehouses and industrial processing plants.
Heavy-Duty Neodymium Lifting Magnets are permanently magnetized, and do not require electricity to operate. Work pieces can be safely loaded and unloaded with the simple on/off lever and locking mechanism.
Available in five models with flat lift ratings of 220, 660, 1,320, 2,200 and 4,400 lb.; round lift ratings are 50 percent of the flat ratings. For safety, the actual breakaway force is 3.5 times greater than the maximum lift ratings.
Designed to keep both hands free to safely work on the project at hand, welding magnets provide an ideal fast and accurate set up. Strong, neodymium magnets securely hold metal objects in place for perfectly aligned edges.
On/Off magnetic welding squares provide additional flexibility during pre and post welding, allowing the user to determine when to engage with the magnet. Easy to use with pre-tapped holes for versatile mounting, just place these powerful on/off magnets on two mating steel surfaces to accurately position material for welding. A simple push of the handle allows users to turn the handle to the ‘on’ position and secure for working. A reverse turn disengages the magnet and allows for safe storage.
Heavy-Duty Magnetic Bulk Parts Lifters allow for easy transferring of bulk metal pieces including nails, screws, nuts, washers, eye bolts or other ferrous metal items. The heavy-duty magnet attracts any ferrous metal parts in the vicinity, then a fingertip pull on the easy-to-use release bar drops the load into the desired location, ensuring a fast and safe transfer of sharp metal parts.
Designed to assist with clean-up, Magnetic Retrieving Batons are innovative, powerful tools for removing fine metallic filings, turnings or shavings (also known as swarf) created by cutting tools and machinery from wet or dry environments.
The batons have a non-corrosive, stainless steel housing and are:
- Ideal for removing swarf and metal turnings from around drill tables and saws
- Designed to work in wet or dry environments
- Constructed with neodymium, or rare earth magnets, to maximize holding power
- The unique shape allows for easy pickup near walls, corners and many other hard-to-reach places.
Shop Safety Solutions
Magnetic sweepers come in a variety of shapes and styles, but all allow for a faster, safer clean-up of debris. The super-powered permanent magnet assemblies—ranging from 12 to 96 inches in width—are perfect for the fast and efficient removal of potentially damaging scrap metal debris.
The sweepers are ideally designed for a variety of environments, including: warehouses, loading docks, parking areas, runways, workshops and other high traffic areas.

Storage & Organization
Master Magnetics also carries a variety of organization options, such as magnetic inventory labels, tool holders and magnet pouches.
Slide labeling into one of the inventory labels for a mess-free application. They hold pre-printed or handwritten inventory labels that can be paper thin up to .031” thick. The label holders attract to ferrous metal shelving units, desks, walls, doors and even point-of-purchase displays. Available for four different card widths.
Pouches and pockets come with a full, powerful magnetic backing, keeping often-used or easy-to-lose essential in the warehouse, office or classroom within reach. Four sizes are available. Additionally, clear, non-acidic plastic sleeves with a magnetic surfacing backing are available. Available in five sizes, the photo pockets are capable of holding a 1” x 4” label up to a standard 8.5” x 11” sheet of paper.
Tool holders are a convenient way to help organize workshops, garages, maintenance areas and more. Available in six different sizes, these heavy-duty permanent magnets hold a variety of tool sizes and other metal parts in one central location. The tool bars are easily mounted with included hardware, allowing for straight-forward organization.
