Magnets make easy work of steel coil handling


Whether lifting with the coil ‘eye’ vertical or horizontal, Tecnomagnete Permanent-Electro coil-handling modules eliminate damage to coil circumference or edges frequently caused by conventional clamps or ‘C’ hooks.

With capacity ratings up to five tonnes with the required safety margins, permanent-electro magnets use electric power only for the activate and deactivate actions.

Since the lifting is accomplished by permanent magnets, these systems require no battery back-up and the load cannot be released until at rest.

All Tecnomagnete lifting systems are sold in Australia by Serpent & Dove – Applied Magnetics Pty Ltd.
