Armstrong designs, manufactures and distributes lifting magnets
in accordance with ASME standard B30.20. for wide range of applications using permanent,
electro-permanent, and electro magnetic technologies. Armstrong strives to produce lifting magnets that are powerful,
versatile, safe and easy to use.
Lifting Capacity - Armstrong Lifting Magnets have lifting capacity from 330 lbs up to
4,400 lbs for flat and round loads, such as plates, slabs, billets,
tubes and more.
Safe Lifting - Armstrong Lifting Magnets are built in a sturdy construction
with solid handles and
have a 3:1 safety factor. We test the break off force of every lifting
magnet before it is shipped to customer. Each lifting magnet has its
unique serial number and test report.
Solutions not only sales - Before Armstrong Lifting
Magnets are being shipped out or even before customer places orders
on them, we would call the customer to discuss the specifications of the loads to be lifted in
order to accurately determine the correct lifting magnets' type and model for the customer's
A plate with large surface size cannot be lifted by a single
lifting magnet because the plate could be bent and then peeled off after
lifted. A spreader beam can be used to connect
multiple lifting magnets to safely lift a sizeable plate.
Electro Permanent Lifting Magnets (EPLM) use electricity for
less than one second to switch on or off the magnetic
power of the magnets. They don't need any electrical power
when they hold the loads in case of the power supply mains
The lifting capacity is up to 22,000 lbs.
There are two types of the eletrical power to activate
