New Heavy-Duty DLS Series Magnetic Lifters Handle Metals Through Thick and Thin

Fitchburg, MA (June 1, 2005) - Simonds International has introduced two new deluxe permanent magnetic lifters designed to grab and move even the thinnest metal sheets. STRONG-MAG DLS Series Lifters fill a void in the sheet lifting market by safely and securely lifting thin gauge metals down to a minimum of .310".

STRONG-MAG DLS Series Lifters come in two models - DLS 330 with a capacity of lifting up to 331 pounds and the DLS 660 with the capacity to lift up to 661 pounds. Multiple magnets can used to safely lift up to 1,322 pounds with a spreader beam. Starting at only 6 kilograms total weight, DLS Series Lifters are designed with incredible power to weight ratios to ensure maximum portability in the factory or field. The DLS Series Lifters have a 3:1 safety ratio complying with NASI/ASME B30.20-1985 regulations for below the hook lifting devices.

These small and portable lifting magnets are designed for maximum productivity and operator safety often turning projects into a "one-man" job. Requiring no energy source, DLS Series Lifters are simply attached to a crane hook or other lifting apparatus and lowered onto the sheets to be moved avoiding operator contact with sharp metal sheet edges. This series is also capable of lifting thin walled tubing.

STRONG-MAG DLS Series Lifters are supplied with a Test Inspection Certificate guaranteeing the lifter is capable of lifting its stated workload. Each magnet can be re-certified on an annual basis or "as needed" by Simonds to ensure maximum operator safety.
