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.


We share a common goal: recover the metal units. So much of the credit for how well this system works has to go to Didier and his philosophy on technology, engineering and his dedication to customer service after the sale and installation.”
