DPM permanent magnets

Reliable hold for flat and round material

Our permanent magnets are universal load handling attachments for all magnetisable loads. They can be used at various workplaces – in production and assembly areas or outdoors. They provide safe and reliable operation in all applications. And the following features:

  • operation independent of the mains
  • five sizes with load capacities from 125 kg to 2,000 kg
  • suitable for round and flat material
  • no residual magnetism
  • single -handed-operation with lever control with integrated safety feature

  • Low operating costs
  • High level of safety and reliability
  • Independent of the mains supply for use anywhere
  • Lever control with integrated safety feature to prevent accidental switch-off
  • No residual magnetism
  • Require little maintenance
  • Independent of the mains supply
  • Poles are not magnetic
  • Position ”I”: magnetic field lines are guided via the poles through the load – magnet active
  • In position "0”: the magnet pole surfaces are neutral – magnet is switched off
  • Load-lifting magnet made of standardised sub-assemblies
  • Internal magnet system consisting of a reversing magnet system, magnet assembly and magnet poles

Compact dimensions and high load capacity

Magnets that keep a stronghold

Our R round magnets offer outstanding performance when used as single units – thanks to their compact dimensions and high load capacities. Our round magnets can be employed as RT spreader magnets for transporting large pieces of sheet and plate metal. Suspension at many points eliminates the sag that typically occurs in such applications.

  • Load capacities up to 1,400 kg for safety factor of 2 (per magnet)
  • Steel housing offering high permeability
  • Single magnets with integrated rectifier, switch and suspension ring
  • Spreader magnets available with separate electric equipment
  • Spreader magnets can be operated in groups

High quality
  • Coils (fully encapsulated with special compound) made of enamelled copper wire
  • Housing made of highly permeable steel
  • Single magnets equipped with rectifier, switch and suspension eye
Strong performance
  • Load capacities up to 1,400 kg for safety factor of 2 (per magnet)
  • Connection to power supply with mounting equipment incl. cable drum
Single magnets
  • To hold and transport small sheet or plate metal items and iron or tool parts
  • For handling pig iron, broken castings, scrap, small parts, screws, nuts and bolts
  • Switch, rectifier and suspension eye already fitted
Spreader magnets
  • For transporting larger sheet and plate metal
  • Eliminate the large sag that typically occurs when sheet metal is suspended at many points
  • Separate electric equipment for solutions to meet a wide range of requirements
  • Single sheets of metal can be taken from stacks
  • Thermal cutting tables can be completely cleared following the cutting operation
  • Specific cut parts can be targeted and picked up using groups of magnets

Battery magnets

Flexible operation, robust and reliable

Our battery magnets are the ideal solution wherever you need to transport magnetisable loads safely and efficiently, independently of a mains power supply. They can be used as stationary units installed on wall and pillar-mounted – or as mobile equipment on forklifts and workshop cranes, in stores and in industrial applications where sheet and plate metal is processed. Here are just a few of their outstanding advantages:

  • universal application
  • compact design
  • high safety and reliability
  • high load capacity
  • loads are always safely picked up
  • automatic charging.

Our battery magnets combine an electromagnet, battery and control unit with an integrated charging system for a high level of safety, reliability and flexibility.

High safety and reliability
  • Loads are always picked up safely thanks to automatic switch-on disabler if the battery voltage is too low
  • Residual magnetism is reduced to a minimum by means of automatic demagnetisation
  • Automatic charging control protects the 12 V battery against overcharging
  • Charge level can be seen at all times thanks to display of battery voltage by light-emitting diodes (dual monitoring by acoustic signal and optical indicator)
  • Automatic self-test of the warning device when the charging process begins
Universal application
  • Outdoor operation also possible with IP 53 enclosure (power source, charger and operating elements combined into one unit)
  • Single metal sheets can be separated from the load by flicking the toggle switch
  • High load capacity
