Ultralift E Magnetic Lifter: Product Spotlight

Ultralift E magnetic lifter product spotlightMore and more businesses now have active continuous improvement programmes. Many production and engineering companies are continually looking at investing in cost-effective solutions that offer efficiency improvements and, at the same time, make the workplace safer for employees.

For factories, workshops, warehouses or stockholders requiring movement of steel-based profiles, the Ultralift E magnetic lifter is one such solution. It offers tangible gains for minimal investment.

What is Ultralift E?

Ultralift E is a magnetic lifter suitable for lifting ferrous blocks, sheets, flat or round bar. It offers clear advantages in comparison to more traditional lifting methods such as slings, chains, hooks, and grabs. Using permanent magnetic technology, it requires no consumable power source and has in-built safety mechanisms to ensure fail-safe operation.

How does the Ultralift E work?

Ultralift E is simple to operate, requiring only single-face engagement with the load. To engage with the load, simply rotate the handle to the on position. This changes the direction of the magnetic flux, which then engages the load. When the handle is rotated to the off position, the magnetic field is diverted away from the load and allows its release. A safety lock on the handle prevents it from being released during lifting, and a 3:1 working load limit (WLL) safety factor negates the risk of user error.

Key Features

  • Suitable for ferrous plate, flat section, or round bar loads
  • Locking switch handle safety mechanism: the load cannot be released mid-lift
  • Simple on/off handle operation
  • Powered by permanent magnets, no consumable power source is required
  • Robust, durable construction *
  • 3:1 working load limit safety factor **
  • Includes high-performance rare-earth magnets

Key Benefits

  • Safe, single-person operation
  • Increased lifts per hour—instant single-face engagement with the load
  • Optimises storage and stacking space; it only requires single-face access to the load
  • Does not damage or mark the load

* Directives from LOLER, PUWER, ASME B30.20, and HSE recommend regular checks and annual servicing.

** Always check that the load weight, material, surface finish, and dimensions are compatible before engaging the lift (see product manual). Test lifts should be undertaken.

"We were delighted with the service provided by Eclipse Magnetics; from the initial site survey through to delivery."

Adrian Seeley, Production Supervisor at AB MAURI UK & Ireland

"I cannot begin to tell you how much it has helped our operation, the magnetic filtration unit has been a real problem solver it has surpassed all our expectations. Its cured a 30 year plague!"

Maintenance Manager at EXL Tube (Steel Ventures)

"This technology is economical, reliable and efficient. I believe that magnetic filtration technology is the future."

John Smith, MMTCI

"Magnetic filtration has dramatically cleaned up our fluids and improved the surface finish we can offer. It extracts around 50Kg per day of ferrous waste."

Facilities Manager, Milacron Machines (Sub-Contract Machining)

"We chose Eclipse Magnetics to supply our housed grid because they are a respected and well-established brand. They offered us a very competitive price, and the process of ordering and installation was straightforward and reliable."

Pat Richards, Chief Engineer at Simpsons Malt

“We are delighted with the Automag installation; it’s solved all the problems we were having previously with downtime and maintenance costs. The filter means that we are able to use recycled water, which is saving us £1000 per week!”

Kenneth McRae, Principle Engineer at Vallourec

"Here at Qualflow, we base our business on a philosophy of make the product simple to use, reliable and cost-effective. Eclipse Magnetics’ neodymium magnets offer the strongest magnetic performance, and are nickel plated, making them a cost effective.."

Justin Lawler Ph.D. MBA, Chief Technology Officer at Qualflow Systems Ltd

"The Ultralift Plus magnetic lifter from Eclipse Magnetics is the perfect solution for the pick-up and transportation of the ultrasonic calibration blocks in our facility"

John Crossley, NDT Technology Lead at the Nuclear AMRC
