Engineering and Design

Engineering software
We utilize CAD/CAM engineering software to design and fabricate all products manufactured. Our engineering team is trained to meet specific MPI product classification levels, ensuring that product design documents result in "best in class" mechanical design specifications.

Custom order approval drawings
To ensure nonstandard equipment meets your specific system requirements, MPI will provide part approval drawings (by e-mail or fax) before fabrication. Time allocation for this process is included in MPI standard manufacturing lead times. Please note that this process is required for all nonstandard equipment orders

Permanent job file record storage and retrieval
Once a customer order has been completed, job records are stored both electronically and in hard copy formats. This enables MPI to quickly deliver repeat orders and provide exact replicas of component parts on repeat orders.

Field Measurements

To ensure that the products and services we provide will meet your expectations, MPI offers technical customer site services to evaluate your needs and applications. After visiting your facility or inspecting your part, we will submit a formal quotation.

Product Testing

MPI offers free product testing to ensure that proper application and separation equipment is selected for each job. We simulate real-world conditions in our in-house lab, using customer-supplied samples and MPI separation equipment. MPI tests products and presents a report, which identifies the parameters of the test and the results. If requested, samples are returned to the original source, with removed tramp metal packaged separately.

Product testing confirms that proper separation equipment is selected. Often, materials contain para-magnetic trace elements that can be confirmed only by testing. Product characteristics often limit flowability and capacity. Product testing ensures the proper size and configuration of Magnetic Separators. The method of feeding product is important to the overall results of a Magnetic Separator. Product testing can reaffirm results.

Equipment Rebuilds

Often magnetic equipment can be rebuilt, rather than being replaced. In many cases, state-of-the-art magnetic components can be substituted to bring equipment to current standards. MPI has rebuilt magnetic conveyors, magnetic pulleys, eddy current rotors, oil-cooled electromagnets, magnetic drawers and magnetic chutes. Nearly every piece of magnetic equipment can be rebuilt. Often, we upgrade older Magnetic Separators with more current, higher strength Rare Earth magnetic components. Rebuilds are an excellent way to save time and money.

For further information, please contact our customer service department by Email or by phone at 1-800-544-5930 (U.S./Canada only) or 248-887-5600 (outside U.S. and Canada).

Synergistic Coatings

Synergistic Coatings
Synergistic Coatings

What is Synergistic coating?

TheMPI "Infused Matrix" synergistic coating is a proprietary, multi-stepprocess that combines a proprietary nickel alloy with the controlledinfusion of sub-micron sized particles of high temperature, low frictionpolymers. The coating becomes an integral part of the surface basemetal, as compared to a typical surface coating, and will not chip,crack, flake or peel. This surface treatment is engineered to provide anexceptional combination of low friction, permanent dry lubrication,corrosion protection, release (non-stick), non-wetting, wear resistanceand hardness.

Permanent Performance & Solutions to:

  • Wear
  • Friction
  • Corrosion
  • Sticking

Benefits:

  • Increases lubricity and abrasion resistance, and extends wear
  • Excellent non-stick properties
  • Low coefficient of friction
  • Resists chemicals and corrosion
  • Compliant with FDA and USDA standards
  • Increases hardness
