Lifting magnets

Lifting magnets are used to move and position ferromagnetic (often steel) work pieces of various shapes and lengths quickly and without damage. A lifting and hoisting magnet saves valuable storage space and time.

Lifting magnets use electromagnets, permanent magnets or a combination of both. The advantage of electromagnets is that they can lift large weights (up to 15 tonnes) and can be switched remotely. A disadvantage is that a loss of power will result in release of the load. Therefore all electromagnetic lifting systems have a backup system that holds the load for 20 minutes after a power failure. This backup system is expensive and must be inspected annually. As an alternative, Goudsmit also sells both mechanically and electrically switchable permanent lifting magnets. These maintain their magnetic force and do not require a backup system.
