Low cost rare earth magnet materials has led to a proliferation of relatively small, lightweight permanent lifting magnets which use a variety of construction methods and technologies.
The MaxX series of lifting magnets from Tecnomagnete feature safety as a priority. They use patented ‘neutral crown’ technology, focussing all of the magnetic energy available for lifting, at the face of the magnet. This means that they don’t allow significant magnetic field to appear at the sides and top of the lifting magnet and render them less effective or unsafe.
Lifters can sometimes be unsafe. For example, when a lifter which is already clamped to a steel plate is lifted by another steel plate clamped to its rear, the available strength at the face of the lifting magnet is compromised, creating the dangerous possibility of loss of load should the back of the lifting magnet come into contact with a steel component during a lift.
This cannot occur with MaxX magnetic lifters because they employ a monoblock construction and a balanced magnetic circuit pushing all the available magnetic ‘flux’ to the lifting face. MaxX lifting magnets and all of the Tecnomagnete range are available in Australia from Serpent & Dove .
