To date, Roemheld offers the only magnetic clamping plates with a control system that meets the new EN 289 press standard for plastic and rubber machines that came into force in January 2014.

R4605 controller

The new Roemheld controller satisfies the highest safety requirements of performance levels “d” and “e” for mould monitoring, power supply, magnetisation and emergency stop.  All safety signals and error messages are displayed on the control panel, or can optionally be simultaneously transmitted via RS or Profibus interfaces to the press controller.


It is available for all six models of the M-TECS magnetic clamping series, designed as standard for working temperatures up to 210 °C.  It is also optionally available with a heater.


Roemheld magnetic clamping exploits the benefits of the high force concentration of long poles and the inexpensive design of square pole technology.
