Goudsmit Magnetics - Magnetic robot grippers for automated processes

Magnetic robot end-of-arm tooling are suitable for the automated pick-up and positioning of steel or other ferromagnetic objects. They can be switched on and off and have a threaded mounting hole for robots. Magnetic grippers are an efficient alternative for traditional robot grippers. Application in automated production lines and for robots and pick-and-place systems. Magnetic product handling reduces the duration and number of operations. Goudsmit Magnetics is driven by magnetism since 1959. See how it works: https://youtu.be/hcXJ98mXHZE
