The largest in the TPM range has a maximum working load limit of 1000kg and requires a minimum flat plate/pack thickness of 40mm in order to obtain this. It is not limited to use with sheet metals, but can also accommodate objects with curved surfaces, which makes it more efficient than other types of lifting equipment.
It can work with both flat and cylindrical materials up to 3500mm in length.
The TPM 1.0 provides a tonne of load capacity, which is impressive for a unit that is so small. It also has no need for any kind of power system to keep its magnet in operation. Instead a simple lever on the side is used to orient the direction of its magnetic field. This keeps the cost to a minimum and means that it does not need to be recharged or maintained at great expense.
Another perk of the TPM 1.0, along with all of its siblings in the same range, is that the lever which activates the magnet will automatically lock in place, securing loads and eliminating the likelihood of accidental detachments occurring. There are some specific safety guidelines which apply to magnetic lifting devices like this. Being aware of the built-in failsafe mechanisms is sensible.
A permanent magnet lifter might not provide enough power to satisfy your needs. You might also want to invest in a unit that can be operated remotely, rather than requiring workers to be in direct contact with it to turn it on or off. In that case a battery powered lifting magnet might be the better option.
With rechargeable batteries, models like the BUX BM5000 can last for up to eight hours on a single charge and provide five tonnes of WLL for you to harness. Of course these types of equipment will not be as affordable or straightforward to use and maintain as the Yale TPM 1.0. But in the right setting they will make more sense as an investment.
