Lifting Magnets Improve Safety and Increase Productivity

"SafeHold Permanent Lifting Magnets from Eriez are designed to be safer and more efficient than other mechanical material handling devices. Customers who have upgraded to SafeHold magnets from older manual magnets report decreased workplace injuries and increased productivity," said an Eriez spokesperson.

SafeHold Permanent Lifting Magnets are suitable for carrying semi-finished products such as machined parts, castings, press molds, steel plates, bars, tubes and more without slings, hooks or cables. These magnets are available in ceramic and rare earth models, lift up to 10,000 lbs., need no outside power source and can be turned on and off with ease.

"For customers upgrading from older style lifting magnets to SafeHold magnets, the payoff is an immediate improvement in efficiency and operating economy," said Andrew Kloecker, Eriez Manager of Distribution and Material Handling. "SafeHold magnets require fewer operators and helpers and make quick work of difficult steel handling tasks that are difficult or impossible with old-fashioned magnets."

SafeHold RPL Series Lifting Magnets handle both round and flat materials. Five models are available with capacities up to 7,000 lbs. on flat materials and 1,750 lbs. on round materials. SafeHold EPL Series Lifting Magnets handle flat materials. Four models are available with capacities up to 10,000 lbs. SafeHold APL Series Lifting Magnets handle flat materials. Four models are available with capacities up to 5,800 lbs. SafeHold MPL Series Lifting Magnets handle both flat and round materials. One model is offered with a capacity up to 4,500 lbs. on flat materials and 3,000 lbs. on round materials.
