Available now from Serpent & Dove , the Mag-Frame is a magnetic lifter for steel sheet, which offers advantages over vacuum lifters.
Ideal for loading laser and plasma cutting tables, the Mag-Frame takes the difficulty and danger out of lifting and handling large, thin steel sheets, particularly from a stack.
Finger and other injuries often result when personnel attempt to first separate, then lift, large sheets. Conventional lifting magnet sytems are frequently not suitable and can use up valuable crane capacity, while vacuum systems are expensive and energy intensive.
The patented Mag-Frame magnetic lifter uses an engineered permanent magnet system that requires no electric power and can lift one sheet at a time from a stack. It is suitable for plain steel, checker-plate and perforated plate, up to 6mm thick, or 12mm in a heavy duty version.
This magnetic lifter is best suited to steel sheet larger than 1.2m x 2.4m and a single Mag-Frame can be up to 6m in length.
The release mechanism on the Mag-Frame can be manually operated with a lever, or can be pneumatically or electrically operated.
Additional features of the Mag-Frame magnetic lifter include:
- a three to one safety margin
- low profile
- simple and safe to use with either an overhead crane or a forklift.
