Benefits of the Magfor II Range
As you can tell from the quick rundown of the key features, this range of lifting magnets is versatile and well equipped, while still being a cost-effective alternative to battery powered models. There is even a high temperature variant available for lifting applications that involve the handling of very hot metals.
Using machinery to lift heavy loads can be dangerous, so it makes sense to work with a permanent magnet like this which has so many baked-in safety features. From its auto-locking catch which prevents drops to its sturdy design which avoids wear and tear taking its toll, there is a lot to like about the Magfor II, in all its variations.
It is sensible to compare the working load limit of each model, because there are differences in how much weight it can take depending on whether the object is flat or curved. The limit for a round surface is usually half that of a flat sheet, for reasons of safety and stability.
