Safely Lifting Thick Steel Plates: Electro Permanent Lifting Magnets

Safely Lifting Thick Steel Plates: Electro Permanent Lifting Magnets

Steel plates are known for their strength, durability, and ability to withstand high temperatures and pressures. They are commonly used in construction, manufacturing, and various other industries for a wide range of applications. Handling thick steel plates requires safe lifting devices due to their weight and potential hazards. Electro permanent lifting magnets can handle thick steel plates safely and efficiently.

Safety of Electro Permanent Lifting Magnets

Sling chain and hoist are traditional steel plate lifting devices. However, there are risks of detachment if the sling chain fails to properly hook onto the steel plate. This not only poses a risk of personal injury but also the potential for equipment damage.

Electro permanent lifting magnets can tightly adhere to the steel plate through electromagnetic force, ensuring a more secure lifting connection. This reduces the risk of detachment and increases the overall safety of the lifting process.

Unlike electromagnets, electro permanent magnets do not lose their magnetic properties when power is turned off. This means that even in the event of a power failure or outage, the lifted object can remain fixed, reducing potential losses caused by power failures.lifting magnet for thick steel plate

High Efficiency of Electro Permanent Lifting Magnets

One of the limitations of the sling chain is requiring at least two people to operate. When using the chain claw for lifting, auxiliary tools such as wooden blocks or hooks may be needed, which slows down the process, especially when lifting heavy plates. Besides, it is easy to cause scratches and damages to the surface of the steel plate during the lifting process.

Electro permanent lifting magnet usually have remote control capabilities, allowing operation to be conducted by a single person, thus saving labor costs. They can rapidly magnetize or demagnetize within a few seconds, enabling efficient lifting operations. Additionally, they typically do not cause direct damage to the surface of the steel plate.


Electro permanent lifting magnets are typically designed to provide long lifespan and low magnetic decay rates. It is recommended to follow the manufacturer’s guidelines and recommendations for regular maintenance and inspection to ensure the safe and reliable operation of the equipment.
