Circular lifting magnet (EO)

Circular lifting magnet (EO)

The EO type circular lifting magnet (round electromagnet or electromagnetic gripper) is designed for handling mainly scrap iron. The round electromagnet of a special multi-pole design is adapted to lift sheet metal coils with winding axis vertical. The lifting magnet improves internal transport in steelworks, shipyards, foundries and scrap processing plants. The use of the electromagnet shortens loading times in ports, railway terminals and steel warehouses.

The circular lifting magnet is reliable, very robust and designed for S3 75% intermittent periodic duty. It has high attractive force, high lifting capacity and high handling efficiency. The electromagnet has a high-quality winding made of aluminum tape with the highest class of insulation. This makes it resistant to high temperatures and very durable.
