Drawer magnet sets new standard in equipment protection

May 18, 2006

New NEO FF Series Drawer Magnet is the most significant advancement in equipment and product protection since the advent of the first FF Series Drawer Magnet in 1964, according to the manufacturer. The original Drawer Magnet was designed to protect equipment and product purity for plastic molding equipment. Bunting Magnetics’ new magnet features high-strength, high-temperature neodymium magnets that can capture and hold ferrous metal particles so small that equipment operators may not be able to see them with the naked eye. This level of separation means less downtime as well as reduced screw wear and fewer plugged hot runner nozzles. It is built with a rugged stainless steel housing for durability. It comes in a variety of sizes and can be mounted at the injector throat. A single stainless steel center drawer guide makes removal and reinstallation of the magnet drawer quick and easy, so maintenance an cleaning can be fast and trouble-free.
