VersaLift™ Magnets

VersaLift™ Lifting Magnets with Test Mode, Horizontal & Vertical Lifting Capability and RFID Chip

Compact and powerful Rare Earth permanent lift magnet for use on flat or round surfaces. Contains an internal On/Off release device that does not contact or damage the surface of the part. Locking On/Off handle prevents the handle from being bumped “On” or “Off”, combined with a permanent magnetic lift, eliminates the fear of dropping the load. More features than other lifts and manufactured in the USA (USA M.A.D.E.™).

  • Rare Earth Permanent Magnet
  • Vertical Lift Capable using the optional Lift Lug attachment
  • Embedded RFID Chip
  • Locking On/Off handle & Test load feature
  • Supports custom pole shoes (4, 1/4”-20 Tapped Holes, 1/2” deep)
  • Lifts flat or round loads (see chart below)
  • Stationary Lift Lug(s)
  • Heat resistant up to 180°F (82°C)
  • 3:1 Design Factor
  • CONFORMS TO ASME B30.20 STANDARDS

Test Load Feature

To operate Test Feature, pull spring loaded handle out and rotate it to the “TEST” position. Lift load approximately 2-3” to verify the magnet has the capacity to lift your load. Once verified, place load back down and turn the handle to the “ON” position. Never complete entire lift operation in “TEST” position.

NOTE: Holding Values for the VersaLift™ Magnets are stated at 33% of the actual value. We recommend when lifting sheets over 8’, use 2 or more lifts on a spreader bar to prevent sheet flexing, sagging or peel-off. Thin material is susceptible to magnetic bleed through, resulting in two sheets being lifted at once. Round Holding Values are based on ideal conditions. Consult the factory before specifying these magnets for use on round materials. *Max. sheet lengths are selected due to sag characteristics of specified sheet. The item to be lifted must cover the entire length and width of the magnetic poles to properly engage and release the part. CF = Consult Factory, NA = Not Applicable (Magnets will not turn “ON” with stated thicknesses.)
