Eriez Introduces New Lifting Magnets

Eriez, Erie, Pa., has launched a new line of SafeHold permanent lifting magnets, which can lift and transfer steel and iron without slings, hooks or cables.

Available in several models to meet specific application demands, SafeHold magnets make quick work of difficult steel handling and require fewer operators. Eriez offers the SafeHold line of magnets with lifting capacities up to 10,000 pounds. This line of powerful magnets does not require any electricity, so power failures will not interrupt operation.

The SafeHold APL Series is ideal for quick and efficient handling of steel where access is limited. The APL series turn off and on automatically with the up and down movement of a crane or hoist to provide continuous operation for hundreds of lifting and positioning applications.

The SafeHold EPL Series is specifically designed for machine shop use to carry semi-finished products such as machine parts, press molds and steel plates.
