Magnetic Lifting & Handling Systems - The safest, most efficient way to move ferrous loads

Our magnetic lifting & handling systems are based on fail-safe magnetic technology which delivers lifting speed, accuracy and efficiency whilst ensuring maximum safety. Ideal for applications ranging from light pick and place or robotics to heavy steel stock movement, applying magnetic's to lifting and handling gives the safest, most efficient method of moving ferrous loads.

Why Choose Magnetic Lifting & Handling ?

In comparison to traditional lifting methods, such as lifting chain slings, wire rope, lifting slings, block grabs, vacuum handling, hooks and shackles, magnetic systems offer distinct benefits for manufacturing, assembly and storage.

Simple Operation, Increased Efficiency

Simple, instant on/off operation engages and releases the load in seconds ensuring an increase in the number of lifts per hour.

Single Operator or Automated Usage

Magnetic lifters can be used easily by a single operator with minimal training required. Our magnetic handling systems can be used within automated systems such as pick-and-place or assembly lines.

Precision Lifting

Secure, instant engagement ensures no load slippage and accurate lift placement.

Optimized Storage Space

Our magnetic lifters are ideal for applications where floor space is limited such as steel stock. Magnetic lifting only requires access to a single face of the load, thereby allowing stacking or back-to-back storage.

Load Protection

Single-face engagement and no movement or slippage ensure no risk of damaging the load which is ideal for painted or coated surfaces.

Minimal Running Costs

Our magnetic lifting and handling systems are based on permanent magnetic technology. They do not require a power source to maintain the lift hold.
Safety factor for lifting and handling systems

Total Lifting Safety

Rest assured, safety is the foremost consideration in the design of all our magnetic lifting and handling systems. Permanent magnetic technology with built in fail-safe mechanisms and a 3:1 lift safety factor (*) ensures complete safety for all operations. 

(* 3:1 is based on perfect lifting conditions; the actual lift you will achieve is application specific – please refer to the lifter brochure for more guidance relating to performance).

 

All our products comply with OH&S and OSHA regulations (Canada and US Regulations).

Our permanent lifters are also designed in accordance with ASME BS30.20-2010.
