Company Information

Company description by Eriez
Eriez Magnetics -- world authority in advanced technology for magnetic, vibratory and metal detection applications -- designs, develops, manufactures and markets magnetic separation, metal detection and materials feeding, screening, conveying and controlling equipment for process and metalworking industries. In 1941, Orange Fowler Merwin, or "O.F." as he was known, sold equipment to grain millers. Among the most common complaints heard from his customers were about "tramp iron" -- stray pieces of metal, such as bits of wire, nails and bolts, even horseshoes and hammers, that somehow found their More... way into the grain the farmers brought to the mills for grinding.

Merwin investigated a new magnetic alloy called "alnico" (a combination of aluminum, nickel, cobalt and iron), which possessed exceptional magnetic qualities, including peak magnetic strength up to 30 times that of cobalt steel. He devised a permanent magnetic separator in 1942, sold it to a grain miller and his company was on its way. Through innovation, organization and diversification, Eriez Magnetics has evolved into a technologically advanced, financially sound, international company with manufacturing facilities in Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, Europe, India, Japan, Mexico and South Africa, as well as its Erie, Pennsylvania, U.S.A. headquarters. Eriez has sales offices across the United States and some 80 international markets.

Customers are assured of consistent product quality and fast response from whichever plant is closest to them. Eriez sales engineers and service teams throughout the world reflect the same customer-oriented philosophy. Around the world, Eriez personnel are active in various professional and industrial trade associations in order to bring the latest ideas and technology to the application problem solving process. Eriez maintains industry’s largest magnetic, vibratory and metal detection test laboratory at its technical center, adjacent to the headquarters plant in Erie, Pennsylvania, U.S.A. More than 100 pieces of specialized test equipment are on hand. Here customer products and raw materials are analyzed confidentially and ways to separate or move, screen or detect them more efficiently and economically are then suggested. Feasibility and definitive studies are conducted. Less
