Multiple Part Handling System

Multiple Part Handling Magnet Systems are innovative solutions that streamline lifting, moving, and separating metallic materials in various industrial environments. These systems utilize the principles of magnetic force to securely grip and handle metal parts without direct physical contact, thereby enhancing safety and efficiency in operations such as manufacturing, metal processing, and recycling. By employing an array of lifting magnets mounted on a sturdy load beam, these systems offer a versatile approach to handling a wide range of metal objects, from large plates to intricate parts. Below are detailed aspects that highlight the functionality and components of these systems:

  • Lifting Magnets: Central to the system, these magnets provide the necessary force to lift metal materials safely. The number and capacity of magnets can vary, allowing for customization based on the operation's specific needs.
  • Load Beam: This structural element supports the lifting magnets and can be designed to accommodate varying lengths and strengths, depending on the system's intended use and the size of the materials to be handled.
  • Control Options: To maximize flexibility and ease of use, these systems are equipped with various control mechanisms, such as radio remote controls and hard-wired pendant controls, enabling precise manipulation of the magnetic lifting process.
  • Safety Indicator Lighting System: A crucial feature that offers visual feedback to operators, confirming when magnets have successfully attached to the load, thus enhancing operational safety by mitigating the risk of accidental drops.
  • Sling Suspensions and Attachment Options: Designed for seamless integration with existing material handling infrastructure, these systems can be easily attached to single-hook cranes, employing sling suspensions or other mechanisms to ensure stability and safety during lifts.
