Eriez® SafeHold® MPL Series Lifting Magnets are Safe, Reliable and Efficient

Press Release from Eriez

Erie, PA--- SafeHold ® MPL Series Permanent Lifting Magnets from Eriez ® provide the ultimate in operator convenience, safety and reliability. These durable magnets make quick work of previously difficult, time-consuming steel handling.


With SafeHold MPL Series Permanent Lifting Magnets, users can lift, move or position materials in less time, without having to manually release the magnet and without the need for slings, hooks or cables. SafeHold MPL Series Lifting Magnets are ideal for loading and unloading steel sheets from burning tables or anywhere that operator access is limited.


They operate on 115 VAC power and turn on and off, so there is no need for a high cost, high maintenance battery system. In the event of an interruption in power supply, the magnets remain in their current position (on or off) and cannot be operated until power is restored. This capability keeps plant workers safe from accidental dropped loads.


SafeHold MPL Lifting Magnets are superb for handling both flat and round materials, especially semi-finished products with flat surfaces such as machine parts, press molds for forming and steel plates. These magnets are also an excellent choice for loading round bars into lathes.


Maximum lifting capacity (with 2:1 safety factor) is 4,500 pounds (2041 kg) for a flat steel plate and 3,000 pounds (1363 kg) for a round surface product. Thin sheets, rough and irregular surfaces, odd shapes and scale all affect holding power and must be considered when establishing a safety factor.


SafeHold MPL Series Permanent Lifting Magnets are part of Eriez' extensive line-up of powerful permanent lifting magnets. Other models in the SafeHold line include XPL Series, RPL Series, EPL Series and APL Series. For more information, visit .
