LOAD RATINGS & LIFTING POWER

Note: 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.

Calculation Example: SLM-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

SLM-600 Example: T8, F1 and M2

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

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.
EZLIFT-on
Lever in the “ON” position. Note the pin safety lock is engaged.
EZLIFT-off
Lever in the “OFF” position.

WHO USES LIFTING MAGNETS?

Pipeline Builders
Workshops
Contractors
Engineering Firms

Steel Foundries

These units are the ideal solution for machined parts, press molds and other uses around the foundry. SLM Lifting Magnets eliminate the need for dangerous straps and slings that can slip or break.

Municipalities

Use SLM magnets to quickly remove both smooth and grid manhole covers, as well as re-position sewer covers and other street coverings. They also allow workers to easily lift plate steel during street re-surfacing or other road work.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Q. What is the lifting magnet made of?
A. The magnet itself is a Rare Earth, Neodinium Magnet encased in a steel/alloy housing. 

Q. Do lifting magnets work with paint? 
A. Yes.  You may need to move up one size to accommodate the coating thickness if it’s more than 1 mil but otherwise the size should remain constant

Q. Will the magnets work on waffle patterns?
A. Yes but you will need to move up to the next larger size

Q. Do I need one or two lifting magnets for my application?
A. If the weight is in the required range but the steel is longer than the stated maximum safety length, you would need two units on a spreader bar.

Q. I don’t know what I need.
A. Don’t worry!  We do this every day and can help you, just give us a call and we’ll guide you to the proper unit.

Q. Are the bottoms flat or curved?
A. The bottoms are convex so they can accommodate both flat and round steel per the weights shown on the chart

Q. What does a 3x safety rating really mean? 
A. It means that under perfect conditions, which rarely exist, the magnets will hold 3x their rated loads.  In other words, the steel would have to be perfectly clean, flat and within the dimensional requirements shown on the chart.  This is a “safety” rating used to insure that users don’t overstep the limitations of the magnets.

Q. Can these units ship by air?
A. Yes, they are packed according to required guidelines for shipping magnets.

Q. Can you use these under water?
A. Yes, water does not damage them or decrease magnetic field.  Salt water will however, corrode them over time.
