Walker Magnets Lift 4000 lbs with One Finger

Worcester, MA, October 12, 2009 - Walker Magnetics, the international leader in the design and manufacture of magnetic products for light and heavy industry, introduces the world's first and only Circular Electric Lift Magnets (CER) with IR wireless remote. CER magnets are the least costly but most powerful magnets of their kind available. The deep penetration of their magnetic field make CER magnets less susceptible to adverse surface conditions than any other self-contained magnet. The CER Series has six models to fit a variety of lifting applications. CER magnets are ideally suited for in-plant handling of steel plate, flat stock, castings, forgings or machined components in all types of industrial plants, machine shops, fabricating shops and steel warehouses. The state-of-the-art CER Series with wireless remote was developed because it is safer as well as a timesaver. No more climbing on a load to switch it on or off. You can do it easily-and safely from up to 15 feet away. There are many other safety features built in. For example, easy-to-use on-board push buttons to attract and release work pieces when desired. The release is a two-button design for added safety in both the remote and the on-board rectifier. The CER with remote won't lift if the contact isn't secure. And, it can't shut off accidentally when a lift is in progress. Walker's new wireless remote is available on the CER Series magnets (Models CER-5 through CER-12). Customers with an existing CER magnet can have it upgraded to IR remote control. Now you can enjoy all the benefits of CER magnets: the lift capacity, the flexibility, and the reliability without having to reach over and flip a toggle switch. Instead, with the CER magnet with IR remote, you can operate safely and easily from up to15 feet away-with one finger.
