Lifting Magnets Ship within 24 Hours through the Eriez® 5-Star Service® Magnet Exchange Program

Press release date: April 22, 2014

Erie, PA - Through the popular Eriez® 5-Star Service® Magnet Exchange Program, customers can trade in their SafeHold® Lifting Magnet for a pre-certified, refurbished magnet of the same make and model. Exchange magnets are in stock and available to ship within 24 hours.

“The Eriez 5-Star Service team is committed to providing expeditious solutions,” says Dave Hansen, Manager-Service and Repairs. “With the ability to ship a refurbished, replacement SafeHold magnet within 24 hours, we can help to minimize downtime and maintain productivity and profitability in customers’ operations.”

The 5-Star Service Magnet Exchange Program is offered only on select SafeHold models. To qualify, customers’ magnets must pass Eriez’ two point inspection: 1) load test within specifications and 2) magnet rotor intact and operational.

All magnets supplied via Eriez 5-Star Service Magnet Exchange Program are shipped with a “Certificate of Compliance”-verifying they are built in compliance with ASME B30.20-as well as an “As New” warranty. SafeHold Lifting Magnets that are not eligible for the Exchange Program may qualify for Eriez’ Refurbishment Program, through which the company refurbishes customers’ SafeHold magnets and ships them back to them within three to five days. Refurbished magnets also come with a “Certificate of Compliance” and “As New” warranty.

In addition to lifting magnet certification, exchange and refurbishment, Eriez’ 5-Star Service also includes on-site and off-site repairs, maintenance, equipment rebuilds, parts and downloadable resources. To learn more, visit
