A lifting magnet does exactly what it says: it’s an electromagnet that can pick up or lift metal objects. A lifting magnet has magnetic properties in its electrified coil and is normally attached to a crane. The crane then positions the magnet above the objects and the magnet is energized. Lifting magnets vary in size. Some can be as big as a queen-sized bed. Lifting magnets are used in steel mills, scrap yards, loading docks, warehouses, foundries and ship yards to name a few. Lifting magnets can transport sheet, flat and round steel, as well as scrapped vehicles.
