This blog post is your ultimate guide to the Magswitch magnetic tools range – keep reading to learn more about which tools are suited to a variety of industries.
Welding & Fabrication
Magswitch offers a variety of tools to assist the welding and fabrication industry. Fixturing, weld grounding, mounting, work holding, positioning, fitting, and many more applications are performed significantly faster with the Magswitch products. Let’s have a look at the products we stock at MSA Magnetics and how they can help you:
Magswitch Ground Clamps
Designed for welding applications, the Ground Clamps provide instant ground on a flat surface or pipe. The finned design lowers the temperature of the unit by almost 27%, allowing welders to quickly set up, weld and move on to the next job.
Used for work holding and fixturing, the MagSquares can align and secure flat or round pieces of steel to fabricate angles. Pull corners, secure steel for cutting, use as a guide, make your own fixtures and more!
Magswitch Angle Tools
The Magswitch range of Mini Multi Angle work holding magnets offer you more angles in one product than any other magnetic angles. They stay clean and shut off completely! Sizes available: 45/135° + 60/120°+ 75/105° + 90° angles.
Magswitch Pivot Angle
The Magswitch range of Pivot Angles includes angles from 22 to 270 degrees. Each axis features a Magswitch with a 90kg hold capability. A single pivot point is located on the elbow, and the elbow joint locks and unlocks quickly with a lever. The dial on the elbow features indicators every 5 degrees. On each axis a Magswitch is exposed on a side to enable the tool to secure to a table or wall, while simultaneously holding the work piece. Perfect for repetitive work on uncommon angles.
The Magswitch BoomerAngles offer virtually unlimited angles and are equipped with a rotating MagSquare at the end of each axis. Not only do they have a fixed 90-degree angle on the inside and outside, but they are also adjustable to any angle in between! Featuring the benefits of Magswitch including incredible power and precision control, Magswitch BoomerAngles are easy to use and can be used with larger and heavier steel.
Magswitch 90° Fixed Angle
The 90° Fixed Welding Angles are incredibly powerful, give you excellent precision control, and can be used with larger and heavier steel. All Magswitch 90-degree angles allow you to reposition the magnets up or down on each axis or reverse from outside to inside. If you want more strength, just add more Magswitch MagSquares.
The Magswitch MagDrill Disrupter 30 allows you to drill on curved and flat surfaces quickly and safely. The magnetic base requires no electricity for a controlled, powerful hold on a wide range of steel thicknesses – thick to thin!
Woodworking & Carpentry
The above-mentioned Magswitch MagSquare replaces fences, jigs, and other conventional devices, and improves the safety of woodworking tasks.
The Magswitch Lifting Magnets are designed to move heavy steel sections, beams, and components. These magnets allow for operators to lift steel material safely and easily on and off trucks, cutting beds, guillotines, saws, etc., and therefore effectively reduce WHS risks such as back injuries.
Fixture & Mounting
The Magwitch Fixture & Mounting tools offer incredible strength & precise positioning! These magnetic helping hands are great for making your fixtures & supporting guides or walls.
Magswitch Mag-Utility Hook
The Magswitch Mag-Utility Hook is the perfect “helping hand.” Quickly and easily hang tools, lights, support wires, air hoses, ground lines and more, right where you need them. The magnets are great for keeping hoses and lines off the floor for a safer work environment.
The Magswitch MagMount is a single lever operation switchable magnet that allows for easy movement and placement of a tool. The two top mount magnets are ideal for supporting fixtures over a distance. The fixed bar magnet is for flat steel and the swivel bar magnet is for round or uneven shapes.
The Magswitch MagWheel offers powerful connection for drive units on any ferrous surface enabling flat, vertical, or inverse travel. This magnet suits a variety of applications, including positioning and guiding, sheet feeding, pipe handling, fitting and fabrication, and numerous OEM automation and fixturing applications. The MagWheel can be fitted with drive units for mobile applications, and results in efficiency, new applications, and productive solutions.
The Magswitch products for infrastructure applications are designed to handle flat, round, pipe, hot, and dirty steel safely. Our material handling and alignment products drive speed, efficiency, and productivity in shipyard applications, city jobs such as lifting manhole covers or valve boxes, underwater jobs such as tethering or welding, etc. The simple ON and OFF patented magnetic technology makes everyday steel handling jobs faster and safer! Let’s have a look at the magnets designed for these tasks:
The Magswitch Extenda-Lift allows you to pick up and move steel without bending over and using your hands, offering convenience and safety advantages. You can pick up plate, pipe, or steel scrap metal off the floor with ease, as well as hot, sharp, or dirty steel material without touching it, making this design great for cities and utilities.
The Magswitch MagDolly is collapsible, has 2 solid rubber wheels, and is designed to lift and carry heavy sheets, pipes, or any steel objects over a greater distance. This magnet is great for moving heavy manhole covers – no more getting down on your knees or pinching your fingers!
The Magswitch MagReach is a No-Touch tool which eliminates the need to touch sharp, dirty, or hot materials. While using this magnetic tool, you can pull parts off the burn table while standing on the side, instead of jumping on top. This tool significantly reduces the need for bending over and risk of back injuries, making workplaces safer and more productive. The MagReach is excellent for dragging and guiding heavy sheets and tubes with an extendable handle for varying distances.
Specialty Sheet Tools
Magswitch offers awesome Sheet Handling tools! No more back-breaking Manual Heavy Lifting Sheets – simply activate your Steel Sheet Lifter, lift, position or align the steel, deactivate the magnet & you’re done! It can’t get much easier than that!
Magswitch Sheet Handler
The Magswitch Sheet Handler enables you to pivot and lift a sheet up and onto a wheel so it can be dragged or moved. This is a perfect tool if you need to lift and slide one sheet over another.
The Magswitch MagPress offers a simple way to align sheets and press beam. Aligning large sheets with precision can be very time consuming, and the MagPress will save you time with this task! Featuring 500kg of hold force instantly, this tool uses magnetic force and leverage and will allow you to align two sheets and weld them together much more quickly than with other methods. By turning the handle to the other side, this tool becomes a beam press tool which can press a 4-6” beam in a second! This product gives you two functions in one simple tool!
