Walker Magnetics Handles the Hard-to-Handle

Worcester, MA, October 5, 2009 - Walker Magnetics, the worldwide leader in the design and manufacture of magnetic products for light and heavy industry, introduces ExBeam, an expandable spreader beam.

ExBeam is designed to make the handling of long, unwieldy products both safer and easier. And, in the case of ExBeam, it's not limited to handling steel. ExBeam can also be used with slings and chains to handle other difficult loads such as logs or rolls of paper. Bottom line? If it's long and spindly, ExBeam can handle it.

The product is available in two models: Ex 10 and Ex 12. Each has a different weight
and expansion capacity. Both are designed to support maximum capacity of magnets
at maximum distance.

The Ex 10 expands from 2 feet to 6 feet and has a lifting capacity of 2200 lbs. It can be used with either two Neo-250 lift magnets or two Neo-500 lift magnets.

The Ex 12 has a lifting capacity of 8000 lbs and expands from 3 feet to 6 feet. This model can be used with either two Neo-1000 lift magnets or two Neo-2000 lift magnets.

ExBeam saves time because it gives you the ability to quick change and adapt to different lifting scenarios within your shop environment. The lifting lug that supports the magnets is manually adjustable. No special tools required. Simply pull the locking pin on the adjustable slide, reposition, reinsert the pin and you're ready to lift.

Increase your flexibility with ExBeam from Walker Magnetics-the safe, simple way to handle hard-to-handle products.
