Yale TPM 0.1 Permanent Lifting Magnet
The smallest of the TPM range, the TPM 0.1 has a weight lifting capacity of 100kg and weight just 6kg. It’s extremely compact nature makes it simple to carry around and use, while its handle operation requires no power and can keep loads in place for as long as you need. It rivals other permanent lifting magnets like the Eclipse Ultralift LM.
Quick Overview of TMP 0.1 Lifting Magnet Features
- For flat materials the maximum length it can lift is 2000mm, and needs a minimum thickness of 15mm to obtain the maximum WLL.
- For cylindrical materials the maximum lifting capacity is reduced to 50kg, and is suitable for diameters of 200-300mm and lengths of up to 200mm.
- Quick and easy to use and transport, ideal in workshops and warehouses.
Perks of Permanent Lifting Magnets
The decision to use a magnet lifter like the Yale TMP 0.1 will be influenced by a number of factors. If you need to move metal sheets or cylinders of relatively small sizes in an efficient, cost-effective way, then it is ideal for the job.
It is also much more affordable than an equivalent battery powered lifting magnet. While it cannot match its powered cousins in terms of safe working load, it can step in for jobs where a higher capacity is not necessary.
Magnet Lifter Considerations
As already discussed, this small scale piece of equipment should only be used with sheet metal and curved cylinders that sit within the weight limits set by the manufacturer. When working with magnetic lifters like the Yale TPM 0.1, you also need to consider other factors which could impact safety, such as the temperature of the materials you are shifting.
This model is not equipped to cope with newly produced metals which have yet to cool completely, but thankfully there are alternatives like the Tractel Magfor II HT which are safe to use with loads of up to 250 degrees Celsius.
Extra Lifting Magnet Issues
Another thing to think about when picking this type of lifting gear is that the magnetic field produced by the TPM 0.1 and its counterparts will actually impact the metal with which it makes contact. The good news is that because this is a small, unpowered model, it will not turn steel plates, beams and poles into magnetised objects themselves. A residual magnetic influence will remain, but it will not be enough to cause problems further along the production line.
