MAG-FRAME Steel Sheet Lifting System

By Serpent & Dove - Applied Magnetics Pty Ltd

Lifting steel sheet is easier, safer and simpler with Mag-Frame from Serpent and Dove. Employing ingenious shallow-field, laminated magnet elements of Neodymium (Rare Earth) and/or Ferrite materials to lift and carry one sheet at a time, Mag-frame reduces the hazards and time of lifting with slings and chains. It selects only the top sheet from a stack, even if the steel is less than 1 mm thick. A designed cam and lever system enables the sheet to be discharged at will. The hand-operated or automated discharge syatem has a fail-safe locking mechanism for safety. Mag-Frame can be used with forklifts, cranes or hoists and provides a three to one safety factor. Lightweight, Mag-Frame uses little valuable crane capacity.

Mag-Frame in use with forklift lifting/carrying 4mm thick 3 metre x 1.5 metre steel sheet. Easy, cost-effective and safe! Below: one of several Mag-Frames supplied to an Australian articulated trailer manufacturer to lift & place large checker-plate steel sheet. Release operation is automatic.
