Eriez’ XPL SafeHold line of magnets allow users to lift either flat or round materials using the same magnet. The magnets are available in six models with capacities ranging from 400 to 5,000 lbs for flat materials and 300 to 4,000 lbs for round materials.

Constructed with Erium 3000 rare earth magnet material, the magnets are small, lightweight and feature a powerful magnetic force, the company says. The series is especially useful for many machine shop operations, including the loading and unloading of machining centers. With XPL magnets’ internal on/off change-over mechanism, there is no scratching of the work surface when loading/unloading.

Operating these magnets is designed to be quick and easy, therefore fewer helpers are required. These designed magnets can lift and transfer steel and iron without slings, hooks or cables.

Since the XPL series requires no electricity, the potential of a power failure interrupting operation is eliminated. The continuous rare earth magnet provides the power until the magnet is turned off, so there isn’t any costly DC power supply or hassles of charging or replacing batteries.

The XPL-30/24 and XPL-50/40 are the newest additions to the XPL series of SafeHold permanent lifting magnets. The XPL-30/24 has a capacity rating of 3,000 lbs on flat materials and 2,400 lbs on round material. This magnet can handle round material from 4” to 15” in diameter.

The XPL-50/40 has a capacity of 5,000 lbs. on flat material and 3,700 lbs. on round material. It can handle material ranging from 6” to 18” in diameter.
