Download PDF LiteratureNote: On all our lifting magnets there is a built-in safety factor of 3.3 times the rated load. This means that the safety factor is 3.3 times the maximum rated load for each magnet lifter. All Lifting Magnets need a safety rating; do not be misled by magnets without such.
WARNING
:
Never lift more than the maximum rated load.

Operation
Simply move the lever to the “ON” position to engage the lifting magnet. Spring-loaded lock keeps the magnet engaged until you release it.

ATTENTION: Never move the lever to the “ON” position unless the magnet is placed on an iron or steel object.

Calculation Example: ELM-600, rated lifting power is 1,320 lbs. The formula for calculating range of lifting capacity is: T x F x M x Capacity.

T = Thickness

F = Surface Finish

M = Material

ELM-600 Example: T8, F1 and M2

90% x 125% x 85% x 1,320 = 1,263 lbs
