Original Press Release:
Eriez' XPL SafeHold® Line of Magnets Offer a Powerful Solution for Lifting Both Flat and Round Materials
Eriez' SafeHold® XPL magnets allow users to lift either flat or round materials using the same magnet. SafeHold XPL magnets are now available in six models with capacities ranging from 400 to 5,000 pounds for flat materials and 300 to 4,000 pounds for round materials.
Constructed with Erium 3000 rare earth magnet material, SafeHold XPL magnets are small, lightweight and feature a powerful magnetic force. The XPL series is ideal for many machine shop operations, including the loading and unloading of machining centers. With XPL magnets' internal on/off changeover mechanism, there is no scratching of the work surface when loading/unloading.
Operating SafeHold® XPL magnets is quick and easy, therefore fewer helpers are required. These innovatively 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.
XPL-30/24 and XPL-50/40 are the newest additions to the XPL series of SafeHold permanent lifting magnets. The new magnets extend the XPL line capacity by more than double.
The XPL-30/24 has a capacity rating of 3,000 pounds on flat materials and 2,400 pounds on round material. This magnet can handle round material from 4 inches to 15 inches in diameter.
The XPL-50/40 has a capacity of 5,000 pounds on flat material and 3,700 pounds on round material. It can handle material ranging from 6 inches to 18 inches in diameter.
Other magnets in the SafeHold line include XPL-4/3, XPL-8/6, XPL-15/9 and XPL-24/16. Several SafeHold magnets can be combined to conform to the specific shape and weight of complex work pieces.
All magnets in the SafeHold line are versatile, durable and safe. According to Eriez, when properly installed and operated, SafeHold magnets provide greater safety than other mechanical material handling devices.
