When properly installed and operated, SafeHold® Permanent Lifting Magnets from Eriez® are safer and more efficient than other mechanical material handling devices. Customers who have upgraded to SafeHold magnets from older manual magnets report decreased workplace injuries and increased productivity.

Operators utilizing an old-fashioned manual-locking magnet suspended from an overhead crane to move heavy steel plates are often forced to reach across plates or climb on top of them to turn the magnet on or off. These practices can often result in back injuries. Activating these types of magnets also puts workers at risk for injuries caused in the event the lever propels back at them. The revolutionary design of Eriez SafeHold Permanent Lifting Magnets puts an end to these issues.

SafeHold Permanent Lifting Magnets are ideal for carrying semi-finished products such as machined parts, castings, press molds, steel plates, bars, tubes and more without slings, hooks or cables. These magnets are available in ceramic and Rare Earth models, lift up to 10,000 pounds, need no outside power source and can be turned on and off with ease.

For customers upgrading from older st yle lifting magnets to SafeHold magnets, the payoff is an immediate improvement in efficiency and operating economy, says Andrew Kloecker, Eriez Manager of Distribution and Material Handling. SafeHold magnets require fewer operators and helpers and make quick work of difficult steel handling tasks which are difficult or impossible with old-fashioned magnets.,

SafeHold RPL Series Lifting Magnets handle both round and flat materials. Five models are available with capacities up to 7,000 pounds on flat materials and 1,750 pounds on round materials. SafeHold EPL Series Lifting Magnets handle flat materials. Four models are available with capacities up to 10,000 pounds. SafeHold APL Series Lifting Magnets handle flat materials. Four models are available with capacities up to 5,800 pounds. SafeHold MPL Series Lifting Magnets handle both flat and round materials. One model is offered with a capacity up to 4,500 pounds on flat materials and 3,000 pounds on round materials.

Selecting the most appropriate and cost-effective lifting magnets requires a full knowledge of the application. Eriez experts work with customers to match the right SafeHold Lifting Magnet to their specific needs.
