Why do the magnets tilt? So that a vertical plate can be lifted and transferred to horizontal or vice versa. Typical applications include retrieval of plates from vertical rack storage and transfer to a flat cutting table, or lifting of a flat plate into vertical storage. Using Tecnomagnete’s unique Permanent-Electro lifting modules in a tilting arrangement, plates as long as 12 metres and weighing up to 10 tonnes can be handled. Unlike ordinary electromagnet systems that soak up large amounts of energy during the lifting cycle, permanent-electro systems use power only momentarily to activate and de-activate permanent magnet lifting elements. Systems can be supplied with wireless remote control that can be worn on a belt. All Tecnomagnete systems available in Australia and Pacific region from Serpent & Dove-Applied Magnetics Pty Ltd.
