Tecnomagnete of Italy, represented in Australia by Serpent & Dove have introduced a magnetic lifting system that is suitable for operations, where vertically stored steel plates need to be lifted and transferred to horizontal attitude or vice versa.
A typical application is where steel plates are retrieved from storage and transferred to a horizontal cutting table. Using Tecnomagnete’s permanent-electro lifting modules in a tilting arrangement on a beam, plates of 12 metres can be handled. The permanent-electro systems/electro lifting modules do not use high amounts of energy during the entire lifting cycle and uses power momentarily to activate and de-activate tasks. Systems are supplied with a radio remote control that can be worn as a belt.
