Permanent Magnet Sheet Steel Floaters

permanent magnet sheet steel floaters

These floaters make sheet steel handling a one-man job — Save up to 50% on labor. Make handling safer. Reduce risk of injury to personnel.

Magnetool floaters separate stacks of painted, enameled, polished, or oily steel sheets one piece at at time, for better handling. They eliminate prying, scratching, marring, and bending of costly stock. Protect expensive dies, punches, shears, and forming equipment.

1/8" thick stainless steel ski bars assure long service by reducing friction drag. Magnets completely enclosed to protect against tampering and dirt. Separator should be 1" higher than stack of workpieces.
