Magnum Magnetics Announces Magnetizer Patent Approval

Tuesday, July 31, 2012

Press release from the issuing company

This month Magnum Magnetics Corporation announced that the United States Patent and Trademark Office has issued US Patent 8,174,346 covering their Portable Desktop Magnetizer. This proprietary technology is designed as an economical solution for commercial printers to magnetize small to medium-sized jobs. This system is durable, reliable and requires low maintenance.  

“The Portable Desktop Magnetizer was a product that we created due to the needs we saw from our customers who are in the print industry,” says inventor and Magnum Magnetics employee Trygve Koren. “Portability is the key to this magnetizer. Smaller shops that do not have the space to dedicate to our larger Industrial units, and the volumes that make would make a handheld unit unprofitable due to the amount of labor. The Portable Desktop Magnetizer allows for a motorized magnetizer to be placed on a desk and run by one operator, when not in use the PDM can be closed and stored safely.”

The Patent for the Portable Desktop Magnetizer covers the PDM-16 (Standard Energy) and the PDM-HE-16 (High Energy).  

The Standard Energy Magnetizer features a 13” wide per pass magnetizing capability that provides a minimum 85 lbs. per square foot magnetic pull strength when used with 30 mil Magnum Magnetics magnetic sheeting.  It offers high speed magnetization up to 50 feet per minute.

The High Energy Magnetizer features a 13” wide per pass magnetizing capability that provides an average range of 75 lbs. per square foot magnetic pull strength when used with 15 mil Magnum Magnetics high energy magnetic sheeting.  It offers high speed magnetization up to 50 feet per minute.

"We are seeing a dramatic increase in the number of printers using our materials," explains Nicole Sheridan, Marketing Manager. "For years printers could not use magnetic materials in their equipment, now we have flexible magnetic materials designed specifically for offset, screenprint, flexo, inkjet, and digital such as Indigo and iGen."  Many of Magnum Magnetics flexible magnetic products require post-printing magnetization; this is an economical solution that easily integrates in existing printing processes.

Magnum Magnetics is a U.S. manufacturer of flexible magnetic sheeting, magnetic strip, and magnetic extrusions. The company's magnet is tested and conforms to certified toy safety standards for heavy metals content. They are also able to customize their magnet and packaging to satisfy individual production requirements.  Magnum Magnetics operates two facilities in Ohio.
