Telescoping Lifting Systems

Telescoping Magnetic Lifting Systems

For customers that need to lift various steel sheet dimensions, the heavy-duty Magswitch telescoping material handling equipment offers adjustability based on the length of the steel plate being handled.

Custom Lifting Device Solution

  • Shorter Plates: activate only the inner magnets
  • Medium Plates: activate all the magnets with the telescopic arm in the closed position
  • Long Plates: activate all the magnets with the telescopic arm in the expanded position
  • Fail-Safe Technology: with the loss of power, the system will not drop plates
  • De-Stack: wide range of sheet thicknesses

Magswitch Heavy Lift Systems and lifting magnets fully meet the standards of US ASME Standard B30.20 for below-the-hook lifting.
