A History of Tradition & Excellence in Magnetic Separation

In 1899, Myron Dings developed an advanced type of magnetic separator during his employment at Allis-Chalmers. When he could not get his employer interested in manufacturing it, he founded his own company and named it Dings Magnetic Separator Company.

Milwaukee, Wisconsin and the year – 1918. The Dings Magnet Company introduced a newer separator for the foundry industry. Mounted on a durable wood frame, this quality separator improved customer’s profitability by turning ordinary foundry waste into clean, reusable products. Waste material first passed through a cylindrical screen to separate the sand. Then, a powerful Alnico magnetic drum separated the ferrous material from other mixed by product. The clean iron can then be reused in the customer’s next casting run.

Today, more than a century later, our company continues to remain a strong leader in the industry; providing magnetic separation solutions to various applications. We offer overhead magnets, magnetic head pulleys, deep draw drums, eddy current separators and much more.
