About us

Mechani Mag (PTY) Ltd was originally known as Mechanica Rand.
In 1971, it merged with UniMag, specifically to design and produce magnets for the mining industry. 
In 2007, Mechani Mag acquired African Magnets (PTY)LTD.

In the beginning, the then Managing Director, Ray Laing arranged for magnet coils to be designed and wound by a top Italian magnet supplier namely “Gauss Magnetti”, shipped to South Africa and assembled into the large over-band suspended belt electromagnets.

Since these times, however, Mechani Mag has progressed into a total designer, manufacturer, and innovator of all sizes of electromagnets and various other type of magnets for the mining, mineral beneficiation, and industrial markets throughout the world. 
We are proudly confident that we produce some of the LARGEST and MOST POWERFUL tramp metal removal magnets in the WORLD!
Similarly, with our range of metal detectors, the name Mechani Mag / Bayliss is synonymous with rugged, reliable, and quality equipment which has resulted in many hundreds being shipped throughout the world.
Not only do we design and manufacture new equipment, but we are also well able to repair, modify, refurbish, and upgrade existing equipment irrespective of the make/brand or type.
After OVER 50 years of experience, we strive to provide our quality products to more happy clients in more corners of the world.
