Our Compliance Initiatives
Industrial Magnetics, Inc. strives to provide our customers with the highest quality products and services. Listed here are just a few of the regulations and practices we comply with to provide users with the safest and most enviromentally friendly magnetic products available. Please contact us if you have any questions regarding our manufacturing process and standards compliance.
ASME B30.20 & ASME BTH-1 Standards
The American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) has established standards for Below-The-Hook Lifting Devices. B30.20 standard applies to the marking, installation, inspection, testing, maintenance and operation of all lifting devices. As applied to lifting magnets in which the operator of the lifting magnet is required to manually position the lifting magnet on the load and manually guide the load during its movement, or in close proximity to people. ASME BTH-1 addresses only the design requirements of a Below-The-Hook lifting device. The standard should be used in conjunction with ASME B30.20.
Lifting devices designed to this Standard shall comply with ASME B30.20 & ASME BTH-1 Below-The-Hook Lifting devices.
