Our staff on the stand have knowledge of all our products including the BM104X eccentric Eddy Current which is equipped with the best magnetic rotor in the market today. The high speed magnetic rotor of this machine generates an astonishing field frequency of 1,56kHz which makes it extremely suitable for separating very fine particles. It’s for example used in bottom ashes and electronics recycling where we achieved some excellent results.

If you are unable to attend IFAT but would like further information on the BM104X Eddy Current or more information on any of our other products then you can contact us at or on 01525 372714

Magswitch Technology’s first magnetic drill wins award

As the UK Agent for Magswitch, we couldn’t be happier to share this great news! MagDrill Disruptor 30 takes innovation award in online rankings.

magswitch-magdrill-30-wins-ptiaMagswitch Technology’s first magnetic drill to market, the MagDrill Disruptor 30, is a winner in the fourth annual Pro Tool Innovation Awards.

“We are very excited, but not surprised, that the Disruptor is being awarded,” said David Morton, Chief Executive Officer. “The MagDrill offers superior performance on round and thin material, coupling our patented shallow field magnet technology and our patent pending pivoting base. The award is a testament to our engineers. To enter a highly competitive tool category and get it right with our first tool is a great accomplishment. Magswitch is changing the way pipe drilling and hole cutting is done.”

Tool and accessory winners were decided by their level of innovation, power, and value. These are best-in-class products that are truly ahead of their time.

A panel of judges made up of tool professionals from across the United States weighed in on entries from top global manufacturers, and Magswitch Technology received an award for their magnetic drill press. Here’s what the judges had to say about the MagDrill Disruptor 30:

“Magnetic Drill Presses are a compelling tool class by nature, and Magswitch offers features on the Distruptor 30 that are pretty attractive. Anytime weight drops in a tool without sacrificing quality, it’s a good thing for the end user. The Magswitch MagDrill Disruptor 30 comes in under 25 pounds. We also really like the ability to turn magnets off individually to help with setup for a tool that’s often used in less than ideal positions. Those magnets also swivel so you can work on flat or rounded surfaces without the need for an adapter plate.”

The first of the series, the MagDrill Disrupter 30, utilizes Magswitch patented technology with added patent-pending pipe conformability. The uniquely flexible drill base is capable of superior grip on flat and round surfaces, as well as pipe outer and pipe inner. Its novel swiveling magnet base design lands on pipe a little over two inches in diameter. Compared to competitor drill bases, the MagDrill delivers better results on thinner steel. Once you have experienced the Disruptor 30, you will wonder what you ever did without it.

Every Magswitch product is proudly designed, developed, manufactured and tested by Magswitch to ISO 9001:2008 standards. For more information about the Mag Drill please go to the product page   or contact us on 01525 372714 or email
