WF Magnet Cranes and individually designed lifting machines harness the power of electro‐magnets to allow the operator to lift a load remotely, in a controlled manner and at a safe proximity.
WF Magnet Cranes can be used in various handling situations and provide improved safety and efficiency when handling:
WF offers a range of magnet cranes, customized to suit client application, with a range of magnets to lift flats, radius sections, beam sections or hollow materials.
WF magnets have a sealed coil, which is encased in cast iron to ensure durability and reliability in the harsh outdoor environments and temperature extremes many of our clients experience.
WF magnets can be used to pick up a single item or multiple items, depending on the weight of the load and the thickness of the material. Magnets can also be used to rotate product from the horizontal to vertical axis, making for easy stacking and loading without the need for packing under the product for chains.
Custom configuration from WF allows our clients to customize their magnet lifting beam to needed specifications.
Ergonomic design of the remote control allows for comfortable and accurate control of the magnet system and also allowing you to fan through the steel by manually adjusting the magnet’s strength.
WF also designs and manufactures Telescopic Magnet Lifting Beams, offering adjustable lift centers for longer beams, plates or sections.
You are also able to use individual magnets to lift up I-beam and other sectional pieces.
As a large consumer of steel, WF uses overhead cranes for steel handling. Prior to the use of magnets, it would take two people to unload a truck: one to operate the crane, and a rigger to separate the steel using hand tools such as prybars, and rigging the steel using slings. This task involved constant pinch points hazards for the rigger. In addition, the rigger faced additional hazards as he/she would have to climb up and down from the trailer, attaching and detaching slings, so ‘slips, trips and fall’ hazards increased the risk for personal injury.
Levering stacked sheet metal apart to allow for application of conventional slings.
Tipping the sheet to vertical with plate clamps.
“Hands on” control of the load.
When lifting bundles with conventional slings, the load can be uneven and be precarious to deal with.
Lifting with magnets provides a controlled and even lift, at a safe proximity, with more control of the load.
