Industrial Magnetics, Inc. introduces the new Air Spring Fanner series of
sheet/blank separators that gives on/off capability to a permanent magnetic
fanner for safe and easy stack changeovers or relocation of the magnet.
Permanent Magnetic Sheet Fanners are used in both manual and automated
applications to quickly and easily separate a stack of steel sheet stock, which
can be difficult due to the oily coatings that protect the sheet's surface.
However, because Permanent Fanners are "always on", there is a risk of having
metal accidentally attracted to the fanner during stack changeovers or when
transporting the magnet to a new location in the plant.
The Air Spring Fanner Series features a unique On/Off system that pushes the
permanent magnetic circuit into the “On” operating position when air pressure is
present. When the air pressure is turned off or disconnected, the magnetic
circuit will return to “Off/Fail-Safe” mode. As the Air Spring Fanner utilizes a
closed system, much like the air pressure in a tire, air usage is minimal.
Ideal for the Automotive, Office Furniture, Appliance, Stamping and Fabrication
industries, the Air Spring Magnetic Fanner features a powerful, Rare Earth
permanent circuit to fit a wide variety of applications from 30 gauge sheets to
3/16” plate. The industrial, welded stainless cover can survive tough
environments and a handy on/off indicator alerts the operator as to whether or
not the fanner is safe to operate or transport.
