ELECTRO PERMANENT MAGNETIC BEAM
The electro permanent magnetic beam is the solution for manipulating single steel sheets in various lengths and thicknesses within limited spaces.
Do you know the problem? Due to lack of space, you are forced to stack steel sheets on top of each other in different lengths. Just imagine, the steel sheets you need are at position 20… This not only costs you time, but also money, a lot of money…
When you organise your steel warehouse with the aid of a telescopic, electro-permanent magnetic beam, you can place the steel sheets right next to each other. The result is a space saving of up to 25%.
Because you can easily pick up sheet by sheet using a magnet, you no longer need wooden beams to be placed between the steel sheets. This also results in considerable space and cost savings.
Simple steel plate treatment in 5 steps:
Position the magnetic beam above the steel sheet and move the electrically driven telescopic arms IN/OFF according to the length of the steel sheet.
Lower the magnetic beam onto the steel sheet and select the number of magnetic modules according to the dimensions of the steel sheet.
Use the 4-position switch to select the right power according to the thickness of the steel sheet.
Carry out the PICK-UP cycle and lift the sheet some 10 cm. Make sure that only one steel sheet is picked up. If several steel plates are picked up, put them down again and reduce the force one position. Carry out the PICK-UP cycle again.
Run the FULLMAG cycle (magnetisation at full power)
You can now safely move the steel sheet.
Electro permanent magnets are the safest solution for lifting single steel sheets. They only require current during the magnetisation and demagnetisation phase. Afterwards, the electric current is no longer required. The effective force is generated by permanent magnets.

ELECTRO PERMANENT MAGNETIC TECHNOLOGY
The electric current is only used to invert the magnetic field, while the effective force is generated by permanent magnets. In the event of a power failure, the magnetic force remains permanently present = 100% safe
SAFETY FACTOR 3:1
To lift safely, a possible air gap between the contact surface of the magnet, and the steel to be lifted, must be considered. That is why all our magnets are designed with a minimum safety factor of 3: 1 measured at an air gap of 0.4 mm.
An inductive proximity switch and associated cam, mounted on the harp shackle of the hoisting chain, prevents accidental demagnetizing in the air.
RADIO REMOTE CONTROL
The magnet is operated from a safe distance. The operator should not come in the immediate vicinity of the load.
With clear safety instructions for the user regarding:
– Maximum weight of the load in function of material thickness
– Maximum wing in function of the deflection of the material.
2 BUTTON OPERATION
To start the demagnetization cycle, 2 buttons (SAFE + DEMAG) must be pressed consecutively on the remote control.
The status of the magnet is visually indicated by a clear LED lamp block. The load may only be moved when the green lamp lights up continuously!
Lifting is done in 2 phases, whereby the workpiece is first lifted at a lower preset force, immediately followed by FULLMAG (100% of the total force)
