Industrial Magnetics, Inc. (IMI) Magnets
Designed for thick, non-flexing material
These compact, yet powerful, Rare Earth lift magnets can be used on flat or round surfaces and contain an internal release on/off device that does not contact or damage the surface of the part being lifted. Permanent magnetic lifts also eliminate the fear of dropping the load being lifted due to power failures.
- ON/OFF Rare Earth design
- Lifts flat or round loads
- Easy internal manual release does not contact the load
- Heat resistant up to 200°F (94°C)
- Conforms to ASME B32.20 Standards
Lock On & Off Features
The new handle on the PowerLift Rare® Earth lift magnet features a positive lock-on and lock-off mechanism that requires the operator to manually switch between the two states. This prevents the handle from being turned only "partially on" and giving the operator a false sense of security that the magnet is holding safely, or from being accidentally bumped to the "off" position, dropping the load pre-maturely.

Holding Value & ***Maximum Sheet Length (Due to Sag for Material Thickness for Single Use)
We recommend when lifting sheets over 8', to use 2 or more lifts on a spreader bar to prevent sheet flexing, sagging or peel-off. Thin material is susceptible to magnetic bleed through, resulting in two sheets being lifted at once.
** These maximum sheet lengths are selected due to the sag characteristics of the specified sheet. The item to be lifted must cover the entire length and width of the magnetic poles to properly engage and release the part.
