Engineering and manufacturing of magnetic and separation equipment

SGM Magnetics started in 1954 in Manerbio (Brescia), north of Italy, a region rich and famous for its competitive steel mills and metals industry. Our name and logo reflect our first two historical core businesses which have been lifting magnets to the steel industry and magnetic separation to the metal recycling industry.

Through the years, SGM has developed a position of pioneer and leader on industrial lifting magnets and has extended its magnetic separation expertise to other in-house separation technologies that are inductive based  sensor separators, X-ray separators, color sorters, gravimetric separation and processes.

SGM disposes of three demo sites (Italy, USA and China) where customers are welcome to send samples for trials in order to assess the best solution and process among the different technologies that SGM offers (ferrous separators, eddy current separator, color sorter, X-ray, air classifier, air gravity tables,...) .

The best solution is often a combination of best technologies.


“My old eddy current had served me well, but it just couldn’t keep up and was losing some of its oomph. This new 60 - inch SGM lets us do what we were doing in two shifts in just one shift, saving a lot of overhead.And, if the economy and volumes pick back up, it’ll be good to go to handle more.”
