On/Off, Permanent Rare Earth Lifting Magnets

These compact, yet powerful, Rare Earth lift magnets are designed for lifting thick, non-flexing steel. They can be used on flat or round surfaces and contain an internal release on/off device that does not contact or damage the surface of the part being lifted. Permanent magnetic lifts also eliminate the fear of dropping the load being lifted due to power failures.

  • ON/OFF Rare Earth design
  • Lifts flat or round loads
  • Easy internal manual release does not contact the load
  • Heat resistant up to 180°F (82°C)
  • ASME B30.20 BTH-1 Design Category B Service Class 3

Lock On & Off Features

The new handle on the PowerLift® Rare Earth lift magnet features a positive lock-on and lock-off mechanism that requires the operator to manually switch between the two states. This prevents the handle from being turned only ”partially on” and giving the operator a false sense of security that the magnet is holding safely, or from being accidentally bumped to the “off” position, dropping the load pre-maturely.

Working Load Limit (WLL) Values for the PowerLift® Magnets are stated at 33% of the actual value. We recommend when lifting sheets over 8', use 2 or more lifts on a spreader bar to prevent sheet flexing, sagging or peel-off. Thin material is susceptible to magnetic bleed through, resulting in two sheets being lifted at once. Round WLL Values are based on ideal conditions. Consult the factory before specifying these magnets for use on round materials. *Max. sheet lengths are selected due to sag characteristics of specified sheet. The item to be lifted must cover the entire length and width of the magnetic poles to properly engage and release the part. CF = Consult Factory, NA = Not Applicable (Magnets will not turn "ON" with stated thicknesses.)

Note: Never stand under load being lifted. Always use extra caution. Only use magnetic lifts on material that does not flex or bend. The surface of the lift, and the load being lifted, need to be clean and free of chips, oil, slag, dirt, etc. Lifting magnets must be centered on load. Not recommended for painted or finish coated surfaces.
