IMI Introduces New Remote-Control Permanent Lift Magnet Gives Freedom from Cords

Boyne City, MI

Industrial Magnetics, Inc. has introduced an entirely new kind of lifting magnet to the market.

Their new, DynamicLift(TM) , featuring MagSwitch(TM) technology, is the first "remote operated" permanent lift magnet that allows an operator to turn the magnet on/off using a remote control, without the need of air or electricity.

Not only does this give the operator freedom from electrical cords and air hoses, but it also opens up a whole new range of lifting possibilities where accessibility to the magnet was cumbersome or impossible to reach, such as lifting above or below arm's length, into deep channels, loading or unloading CNC/cutting tables and operation from inside the forklift.

This compact, yet powerful, Rare Earth lifting magnet contains an internal on/off release device that does not contact or damage the surface of the part being lifted. For operator safety, the magnet is equipped with a special sensor that will not allow release unless the load is at rest. Additionally, the remote requires a special release button sequence, so that a single button push cannot accidentally release the load.

IMI's DynamicLift(TM) magnet conforms to ASME B30.20 Standards and includes two, 12 volt rechargeable, Lithium-ion batteries with charger that can operate for well over 200 cycles per charge. The magnet is heat resistant up to 180°F and has up to a 600lb. lift capacity.

A demonstration video, technical information and order online capability, with same-day shipping of the Dynamic Lift(TM) lift magnet, is available on the company's website at or contact IMI's product specialists at 888.582.0822 / 231.582.3100 or email
