Battery Powered Lifting Magnets

  • Safety Display Indicator – compact LED display with battery status indicator provides audio and visual warning of low battery level
  • The magnet will not activate once the battery voltage drops below the safety level lifting
  • 2:1 Safety Factor – every magnetic lifter is individually tested to meet load specifications and the results are recorded by serial number
  • Universal steel lifting eye with safety bail sensor makes it impossible to disengage magnet during lifting
  • Adjustable/controllable force function – variable force adjusts holding force when handling a particular quantity of sheet-metals from a stack
  • Tip-Off for gradual slackening portion of the load, e.g. thin sheet metal products such as sheeting
  • Battery magnetic lifter for flat loads only
  • Simple operation powered by built-in 12V battery includes a battery charger, battery and remote
  • Additional remote control manipulation – IR remote controller operates from up to 33’ to handle loads with poor accessibility to stay clear of dangerous situations
  • Manufactured in Europe to the highest quality standards
  • Battery lifters have a one year warranty on the magnetic system
  • Meets all the requirements of ANSI/ASME B30.20 (safety standard)
  • Air Gap Test – tear-off test is conducted with an air gap that simulates real operating conditions – true capacity

Our Battery Magnet (BM) is a series of lifting magnets with a built-in battery power supply and high lifting capacities. The magnet is conformable with a safety factor of 2:1, i.e. it can carry more than double its maximum allowed lifting capacity in the tear-away test. Power is provided by a 12V built-in battery allowing up to eight hours of operating time at 50% duty cycle also included is a remote control allowing safe operation up to 33′ away. There is a safety switch under the lifting eye to prevent switching off during lifting. It is not possible to activate the magnet once the battery voltage drops below the safety level. Additionally, low battery is indicated by visual and audible alarms.

When to choose battery powered MPI Lifting Magnet:

The BM battery lifting magnet complete with remote control is a suitable tool for handling in situations where it is otherwise difficult to operate a lifting device manually. The remote control operates up to a distance of 33′. It is also used for cutters and flame cutting machines when handling metal sheets and loads up to 11,000lbs.
