Eriez Offers Full Lifting Magnet Line—Both Permanent and Electro Designs

Erie, PA --- Eriez® offers a complete line of Lifting Magnets--available in both permanent and electro designs--in various models, sizes and strengths to satisfy practically any application need. With Eriez Lifting Magnets, operators can safely lift and move steel without direct attachment by slings, hooks or cables.

Eriez SafeHold® Permanent Lift Magnets are an ideal choice for carrying semi-finished products such as machined parts, castings, press molds, steel plates, bars, tubes and more. Offered in ceramic and Rare Earth models, these robust magnets lift up to 10,000 pounds, require no power and can be turned on and off with ease.

Eriez Electro Lift Magnets include Selecto®, Bi-Polar and Rectangular designs. Electromagnets are formed by sending electricity through wire coiled around a steel core. They are controlled through the regulation of the amount of electricity that passes through the magnets’ coils. Applications range from lifting steel sheets to unloading ships, containers and railcars.

All Eriez Lifting Magnets make quick work of difficult, time-consuming steel handling. They require fewer operators and helpers, and when properly installed and operated, provide greater safety than many other mechanical materials handling devices.

Making the most efficient and economical selection of Lifting Magnets (whether electro or permanent—whether single magnet or multiple arrangement of magnets) requires a full knowledge of the application. Eriez’ “Lift Magnet Selection Guide,” available for immediate download at, assists customers in properly selecting the right Lifting Magnet for their particular job.
