Permanent-Electro Lifting Magnet systems are becoming the obvious choice for more and more Australian steel fabricators and handlers for lifting steel in most forms--but especially plate from stacks or onto and off cutting tables.
This is because Permanent-Electro Lifters use less power, require no expensive battery back-up system for safety and are generally lighter than electromagnets. As all the lifting is achieved with the special built-in permanent magnet cores, hot coils and the associated loss of lifting capacity is no issue for these systems. There is no need for a duty cycle to allow time for coils to cool.
Here are just some of our Australian customers using Tecnomagnete Permanent-Electro Lifting Systems from Serpent & Dove—Applied Magnetics. The same technology is also used for both large and small milling chucks and injection mould holders.
