Neodymium Lifting Magnets Combine Strength, Compactness
IMTS 2018: Master Magnetics’s family of heavy-duty neodymium lifting magnets feature a lifting rating ranging to 4,400 lbs on flat material.
Master Magnetics’s family of heavy-duty neodymium lifting magnets feature a lifting rating ranging to 4,400 lbs on flat material. The magnets are said to help manufacturing engineers and managers increase operational performance while improving worker safety. They are designed for both strength and compactness, enabling safety and speed for lifting heavy loads. Designed to lift both flat and round ferrous metal items, they are intended for handling steel plates and similar items in machine shops, warehouses and industrial processing plants.
Easily operated and lightweight, the magnets are said to enhance efficiency in material handling. Virtually maintenance-free, the self-contained unit only requires basic wiping down and storage in a dry environment to keep the magnetic lifter operational.
The magnets are permanently magnetized, requiring no electricity to operate. Workpieces can be safely loaded and unloaded with an on/off lever and locking mechanism. Available in five models with flat lift ratings of 220, 660, 1,320, 2,200 and 4,400 lbs, the magnets have small footprints ranging from 2.5" × 3.625" to 8.875" × 14.9".
