1. Wonder Wand

Wonder-Wand Magnetic Wand was first invented and produced by us in the late 1980's. With tens of thousands sold worldwide, our Wonder-Wand has been frequently copied, but never bettered. Also known as the magnetite wand in the coal industry where it is used to test for magnetite in the underflow from magnetic wet drum magnetic separators.

Beating the pants off competitors and copy-cats, our Wonder-Wand magnetic wand remains the preferred clean-up tool around lathes and drills in industrial workshops.

Wonder-Wand now comes in two versions - Stainless Steel or PVC. Patent Nos. 2011100011

This picture tells the story!

Wonder-Wand (top) is half the weight of a copy-cat (important to prevent wrist injury in repetitive use), yet picks up almost twice as much swarf.


2. Claymore Wand or Ditch Magnet for oil industry.

A specially developed large diameter Magnetic Wand for recovering ferrous contamination from drilling fluids in the oil industry. The Patented Claymore Ditch Magnet can be ganged and adjusted to suit channel profiles to collect swarf from drilling fluids for sampling and to prevent wear and tear to rig equipment, and downtime. Patents 2016100027 and 2018100937.

7. Safety Rail & Safety-Fence Magnetic Clamps

Serpent & Dove - Applied Magnetics has patented a magnetic clamping system suitable for a number of safety uses - including the anchoring of temporary safety fencing. Such temporary fencing is used to protect personnel working at height or above floor openings in mineral process plants or similar situations where steel flooring is used. Development is ongoing and individual applications are being assessed on a case by case basis. 




















8. Magnetic Crawler for cleaning ship hulls and steel plate

Magnetically retained to a ship hull or steel plate Smets Technology MC-250 Magnet Crawler crawls across the surface directing high-pressure water for cleaning. Eight permanent magnet assemblies which ride just off the steel surface, secure the crawler with a force of approximately 10,000N. The Crawler can operate with or without a vacuum system, to suck away the released dirt, scale, paint and growth. Dubai Drydocks commissioned a study of the technique with the aim of reducing large ship lay-time by 20%. Instead of working as many as 16 manual blasting guns (alongside cherry pickers), just 8 MC-250 magnetic, semi-automatic crawlers achieved the same results and performance levels could be increased by more than 40% and ship lay-time was considerably reduced.
