A scrap yard lifting magnet does just that: pick up or lift metal objects. Scrap yard lifting magnets have magnetic properties in the electrified coil and are normally attached to a crane. The crane then positions the magnet above the objects and the magnet is energized.
Besides scrap yards, lifting magnets are also used in steel mills, 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.
