WARNING: The sheet steel of 7’ long x 14ga gripped by lifting
magnet PL-550, shown in the photo below, is bending severely.
Such lifting operation is very dangerous
because the sheet is too long and too thin for a single PL-550.
When a PL-550 or PL-1100 lifting magnet lifts a sheet metal, the unsupported overhang of the sheet metal would bend due to gravity and possibly peel off from the lifting magnet when the sheet metal is too big and too thin.
For safe lifting, the length of a sheet metal to be lifted using a single lifting magnet of the PL models must be less than the listed value below. If not, you have to use additional PL lifting magnets connected by a spreader beam.
