June 23, 2006

Indianapolis, IN based Earth-Chain, now offers the high-capacity ELM-3000 lifting magnet that features a maximum rated load of 6,600 lbs., plus a 3.5X safety factor.

“Our customers use these to quickly load and unload workpieces and molds. They work great for moving flat or round stock around the shop”., said John Swann, sales manager at Earth-Chain.

According to Swann, lifting magnets are safer to use than sling & strap systems because they will not slip or wear-out. To operate, simply center the magnet on the metal to be lifted and turn the lever to engage the magnet.

All EZ-LIFT magnets are constructed from “rare earth” neodymium iron boron magnets that are five times more powerful than other magnets. They need no electricity to operate and will never wear out. EZ-Lift magnets are available in 6 capacities. They are only for use with ferrous based metals like iron and steel. All Earth-Chain products are backed by a 100% satisfaction guarantee.
