BEAR Paw permanent magnet tools are available from Mecal in a range of models for handling different types of gauge plate materials including steel blanks, off-cuts, steel sheets and press tools.
The tools are light, easy to use and need no recharging. Unstacking of steel sheets can be done without damage. Production times in feeding presses or guillotines are reduced.
In application areas such as the steel store or fabrication shop, off-cuts from saws can be easily handled and stacked with a Bear Paw magnet, 'profiled' components can also be moved, even when hot.
Other uses for these tools exist in underwater salvage operations, repair work, power stations and scrap yards.
