Optimag E - Electronically Activated Handling System

Fast, easy lifting, handling and placing of ferrous loads

  • Failsafe operation - lose power load is still retained
  • Energy efficient - power only required for on/off switching NOT required during lift
  • On/off switching takes less than 0.2 seconds
  • Can be controlled by push button, PLC or robot/computer interface
  • Modular system - one or multiple units can be controlled from a single controller
  • In built safety circuit - will not operate until fully magnetised
  • Operating voltage 240V ac
  • IP rating - IP55

Overview - Optimag E - Electronically Activated Handling System

Electronically switchable permanent magnet (ESPM)

Optimag E is ideal for clamping or lifting loads of >10mm thickness with smooth, flat surfaces. Available in circular or rectangular configurations, Optimag E is typically used in robotics, pick and place, transfer machinery or manipulator applications. The ESPM lifter incorporates permanent magnetic technology. An electric current is only required to switch it on or off.

Once energised or de-energised it will not change until it receives another signal, hence if the power source fails the load will still be held securely. In addition a built in safety circuit prevents the unit being used until it is fully magnetised.

"We were delighted with the service provided by Eclipse Magnetics; from the initial site survey through to delivery."

Adrian Seeley, Production Supervisor at AB MAURI UK & Ireland

"I cannot begin to tell you how much it has helped our operation, the magnetic filtration unit has been a real problem solver it has surpassed all our expectations. Its cured a 30 year plague!"

Maintenance Manager at EXL Tube (Steel Ventures)

"This technology is economical, reliable and efficient. I believe that magnetic filtration technology is the future."

John Smith, MMTCI

"Magnetic filtration has dramatically cleaned up our fluids and improved the surface finish we can offer. It extracts around 50Kg per day of ferrous waste."

Facilities Manager, Milacron Machines (Sub-Contract Machining)

"We chose Eclipse Magnetics to supply our housed grid because they are a respected and well-established brand. They offered us a very competitive price, and the process of ordering and installation was straightforward and reliable."

Pat Richards, Chief Engineer at Simpsons Malt

“We are delighted with the Automag installation; it’s solved all the problems we were having previously with downtime and maintenance costs. The filter means that we are able to use recycled water, which is saving us £1000 per week!”

Kenneth McRae, Principle Engineer at Vallourec

"Here at Qualflow, we base our business on a philosophy of make the product simple to use, reliable and cost-effective. Eclipse Magnetics’ neodymium magnets offer the strongest magnetic performance, and are nickel plated, making them a cost effective.."

Justin Lawler Ph.D. MBA, Chief Technology Officer at Qualflow Systems Ltd

"The Ultralift Plus magnetic lifter from Eclipse Magnetics is the perfect solution for the pick-up and transportation of the ultrasonic calibration blocks in our facility"

John Crossley, NDT Technology Lead at the Nuclear AMRC

"The result is an aesthetically pleasing system, which is effective in trapping metal contaminants and is easy to clean..."
