A guide for identifying and selecting lifting magnets for various industrial applications is available from Eriez. The manual, entitled How to Choose and Use Lifting Magnets, covers topics such as the weight, shape and contact area of the objects to be lifted, surface conditions, temperature, lift frequency, etc. Lifting magnets can be electro or permanent and can be installed and used as single magnets or as arrangements of multiple magnets. In all of these cases, a thorough knowledge of the application is essential when selecting the components to handle steel plate and shapes.
