Lifting magnets move steel without slings, hooks
Eriez® offers lifting magnets in permanent and electro designs for a variety of applications. They lift and move steel without direct attachment by slings, hooks, or cables.
SafeHold® permanent lift magnets are suitable for carrying semifinished products such as machined parts, castings, press molds, steel plates, bars, and tubes. Offered in ceramic and rare-earth models, the magnets lift up to 10,000 lbs., require no power, and can be turned on and off simply.
Selecto®, bipolar, and rectangular electromagnets are formed by sending electricity through wire coiled around a steel core. They are controlled through the regulation of the amount of electricity that passes through the magnets' coils. Applications vary from lifting steel sheets to unloading ships, containers, and railcars.
