Bunting Magnetics Co. manufactures a line of magnetic and nonmagnetic conveyors, equipment, and components, suited for handling small- to medium-size parts or for moving heavy, abrasive scrap to conveying materials in hard to reach locations or at a vertical incline. The company’s conveyors are engineered to help maintain a steady, uninterrupted flow of materials and parts through the production line. They are ruggedly designed and built to reduce labor costs, minimize downtime and increase productivity, the company says.

 

These conveyors are available in horizontal, vertical and incline units and integrated or custom designed systems.

 

Several of the company’s key conveyors are available in either magnetic or nonmagnetic versions to suit the customers’ needs. Nonmagnetic PowerTrac conveyors, which come in low- and medium-profile models, are built to handle most belt-type conveyor applications and can be equipped with optional magnet assemblies for use with ferrous materials. An assortment of standard belt sizes and lengths with single-speed or variable-speed motors are available.

 

Magnetic conveyors move ferrous material reliably and quickly, often at a higher rate than nonmagnetic units. Magnetic models hold and stabilize ferrous parts and scrap as they drop or feed onto the moving belt. Permanent magnets keep ferrous parts in position and eliminate the potential problems of jamming and downtime caused when parts wedge themselves against the guides. The company’s magnetic conveyors are available in a variety of models and configurations. Overhead conveying is possible because ferrous parts are held securely to the magnetic conveyor, even at a 90-degree angle, saving factory floor space.

 

Bunting also makes a line of rugged, beltless magnetic conveyors, built to handle tough or heavy jobs. Its MagSlide chip and parts conveyor and heavy-duty MagSlide conveyor remove or transport oily parts, jagged scrap, or other harsh materials that could damage belts, jam pulleys or shut down conventional belt conveyors.

 

For special handling and unique configurations, the company also designs and manufactures custom conveyors and conveying systems.

 

A line of magnetic conveyor components, such as straight T-rails, curved sections and end sections that mount under conveyor belts with bolt-in-place conveniences, are also available. Magnetic Pulleys transfer ferrous material between horizontal and vertical belts. Decreasing-force Take-Off Rails release materials gradually. Magnetic drive rollers mount in direct contact with sheet stock to transport and control it.
