The Benefits of Permanent Lifting Magnets

Permanent Lifting Magnets IPES International is in the business of helping companies pick up, move and/or put down ferrous materials with their industrial strength magnets. Many industries benefit from the use of permanent lifting magnets, which can do the heavy lifting work of many men thanks to their strong magnetic properties.

Imagine you have something that literally weighs a ton, and you want to move it. You’re not going to break the backs of workers, but you will come up with a machine or magnet solution to move the large, heavy item. Permanent lifting magnets can replace the need for an entire overhead crane system if you want to pick up, move, and put down metal products.

Magnets work well moving large pieces of steel with high carbon content, as well as iron objects. Obviously, magnets do not work well for moving things made of plastic or wood, since those things are not magnetic by nature.

Permanent lifting magnets are quite efficient, and can lift from 500 to 3,000 pounds! IPES uses Ceramic 8 magnet material, with a Rare Earth magnet material available for difficult applications.

If you work in an industry where you need to lift and move large, ferrous steel sheets or slabs, IPES’ lifting magnets will help increase your efficiency. Permanent lifting magnets also work well handling dies, flat ferrous stock, forgings, heavy metal blocks, bar stock and angles.
