Components that build the Permanent Lifting Magnet :

A powerful Neodymium magnet is safely placed in a non erosive case as a measure to protect it from wear and tear. A sturdy hook is provided on top to be used for attaching the lifting magnet to a crane or any other moving machine. A lever is provided on the side of the permanent lifting magnet which is the sole controller of magnetic activity. The entire working of magnetic lifter does not require electricity which is one of the very many cost saving factors and a reason for increased sales..


Putting the magnetic lifter to action just involves the movement of the knob from OFF position to ON position after placing it on the object to be lifted. Skilled labour is not mandatory for the process. On bringing the knob to ON mark the magnetic field is applied and grasping of the metal plate happens. Now the role of the lifter comes into effect and relocation will be accomplished.

  • Assess the mass of the item to be shifted, this ensures safety at first level.
  • Center of Gravity of the object to be moved should be determined as accurately as possible, this makes certain the even balance.
  • See to it that the surface is free of lubrication, rust or worn out paint as these may have an impact on efficiency.
  • Ensure that all fasteners are relieved.
  • Flexibility has to be considered.
  • Lever should always reach the extremes for both working and rest positions.
  • Follow the instruction manual strictly.
  • The permanent lifting magnet scores well over the conventional manual lifting as safe rides are guaranteed. Mishaps and serious consequences are given no room which is not the case when manually shifting.
  • The pace at which work is completed is incomparable, thus saving on time and indirectly money. Shipment or unloading will be carried out without hassle and within the scheduled duration with out damage.
  • Labour cost can be cut down.

From our point of view as manufacturers, suppliers and exporters every manufacturing unit big or small should invest in sales of permanent lifting magnet. If one is not able to decide on the kind of permanent lifting magnet contact our sales team in Chennai, Tamilnadu (India) or in any of our branch office in India & abroad, to know more.

Permanent Magnetic Lifter :

Permanent lifting magnets are small wonders which are capable of lifting objects multi fold their weight. They are safe, efficient and time saving when compared to manual handling. Physical handling involves a lot of risk, there are possibilities of miss judgement of the load to be handled and may result in irreversible damage to humans and finished products.

On the other hand permanent lifting magnet never brings in chances of mishap, when adhering to instruction manual rules. Permanent magnetic lifter uses a powerful Neodymium magnet seated inside a fully covered case compact in nature. Magnetic activity is brought to contact with the material to be lifted upon operating a lever. Once the permanent lifting magnet is engaged to work there is perfection till completion and the lever can be brought to off position.

Permanent Lifting Magnet

There are varied sizes in permanent lifting magnet. The grading of magnet is basically on their capacity to lift heavy objects. Lifting a small weight does not require a very powerful permanent lifting magnet at the same time a small permanent magnet would not be efficient enough, so great care has to be taken in choosing the right sized permanent magnetic lifter.

Construction and working:

Powerful Neodymium magnet is contained in a non erosive case. On / off leaver is facilitated to engage / disengage the permanent magnet into activity. A strong hook is provided on top to attach the lifting magnet to the moving crane or any other device used for shifting. NO electricity is required for the operation.


If a low carbon steel plate has to be transported from shop floor to transportation area the steps to be followed are as follows

  • Place the Lifting Magnet on the steel plate assessing it center.
  • Turn on the handle from OFF position to ON.
  • Connect the hook of the Lifting Magnet with the fastening strap or clasp of the lifer.
  • Lift gently and start moving towards the direction of placement.
  • Upon reaching the spot place it on a firm place.
  • To release the Permanent Lifting Magnet off its magnetic activity bring the lever to off position.
  • The lifer can now be removed and same process can be repeated.

Please note:

  • The surface of the object to be lifted must be free from grease.
  • Assess the weight of the load and center of gravity as accurately as possible.
  • Ensure that the lever is moved to the extremes for fixture as well as release.
  • Make sure the cargo is released of all fastenings before lifting.
  • Take note of the flexibility of the load.
  • Permanent Magnetic Lifter does not lift plastic, wood, aluminum or fibrous material.
  • Warehouses where heavy material handling is regular.
  • Loading and unloading of machines.
  • Transferring coiled steel sheets (both vertical & horizontal) to processing or cutting area.
  • Piling or stacking in containers for shipment.

The Permanent Magnetic Lifter of Star Trace undergoes multi level checking to ensure quality and standards in every step of its making. Durability, excellence and cost effectiveness are our trademarks, which have contributed to our strong footing in the industry.

Lifting Magnets :

Magnets are used for lifting heavy steel objects from one place to another either within the manufacturing unit or for shipment. Lifting magnet is an efficient lifter of load and steel scrap, saving time and effort. It would have been a marathon task if only the lifting magnets were not put to use. There are other devices like mechanical tongs which were used for lifting but they could not match the performance of lifting magnet in terms of speed, accuracy and safety.

Two types of Load lifting magnet

Permanent Magnet:

These lifting magnets are basically magnets which have permanent magnetic activity in them and can be used just by operating a lever. This comes in varying sizes to suite different purposes. A perm magnet is enveloped safely inside a protective covering, On operating the lever from OFF to ON position magnetic field is applied and lifting happens with the aid of a crane or any other mechanism prevalent. There are four different sizes of lifting magnet available for lifting objects of different size and dimensions. Consult with the expert team to finalize on the model that best suits your requirement.

Electro Magnet:

Electro magnets are also readily available to perform lifting operation at any given point of time just by supplying electricity for a few seconds. They are very powerful in magnetic action and can be seen in lifting operations outdoors as well. Depending on the intensity of the magnetic field needed models can be chosen.

When a combination of electro and perm magnet is used the performance is better and safer. Electricity is not needed for long hours but for a few seconds to initiate and release magnetic activity.

Large circular magnets are used in scrap recovery in scrap yards, foundries and ports, their magnetic effect recover even the tiniest of ferrous active particles. Only on using the magnet you will know the amount of scrap that can be collected.

Selection process

Several factors have to be considered before finalizing the selection process. They are as follows

  • Weight
  • Shape
  • Contact area
  • Stiffness
  • How many different sizes of material to be lifted
  • Temperature of material
  • Surrounding temperature

These are only a few parameters that are mentioned as guidelines. A through and detailed discussion will bring out many angles to the requirement of lifter.

We at star Trace have designed lifter magnet in varying dimensions to suite the specific requirement of our clients for easy handling of load. Quality checks at every stage of manufacturing ensures no defaulting occurs and if by chance there are any they can be detected then and there so that there is no delay in delivery. The lifter is checked for quality at the final stage as well with the client so that any changes needed to satisfy will be adhered to.

Both magnet types can be used for lifting load & scrap but there are areas where they find specific use, for further clarification look up our pages on electro magnet lifter and permanent lifting magnet.
