Lifting Magnets

Walker designs and manufactures lifting magnets for a wide range of applications using permanent, electro-permanent, battery powered, and electromagnetic technologies. Walker Self-Contained Lifting Magnets are versatile, compact, easy to operate and can be used on flat and round material ranging from 0 to 11,000lbs. Our larger lifting magnets are designed for applications such as handling billets, bundles, bar stock, slabs, plates, structurals, long bar stock, rail, hot material, coils, pipe rebar, radioactive material, slag, and more. These magnets are commonly used in steel mills, scrap yards, loading docks, warehouses, foundries, shipyards, coil and pipe distributors, and other users of applicable steel products.

Permanent Lifting Magnets
 Our standard heavy lifting magnets can easily fit round bar, pipe, and flat plates. We have lifting magnets for cranes that have high lift capacity but are low weight and simple to move into position. These large industrial lifting magnets contain the highest quality rare earth neodymium magnetic material for smooth and easy magnetic lifting.
NEO SeriesNEO SERIESPermanent lifting magnets for flat and round material handling commonly used in steel supply, machine, and die shops where heavy steel objects must be moved quickly and safely.
NEO-HVNEO-HV SERIESPermanent lifting magnets used to lift flat, ferrous workpieces from horizontal to vertical. Commonly used for vertical loading into machining centers and lathes.
Battery Powered Lifting Magnets
 Each of our battery-powered lifting magnets has its own battery with no wires or cords that can interfere. If you need to operate your magnets in an area without direct access to electric power, these are a great choice.
WBMBUX BM² SERIESBattery powered lifting magnets with cordless remote for flat material handling.
WBPBUX BP² SERIESBattery powered lifting magnets with cordless remote for flat, round, and shaped material handling.
Circular Electric Lifting Magnets
 Our circular electric lifting magnets are self-contained, affordable, and extremely powerful. They are great for handling loose parts and for a variety of in-plant applications such as handling steel plate, machined components, forgings, and castings.

Steel Mill Magnets
 We have a variety of extremely reliable magnets designed for steel mill use, including: 
  • Magnets safely built into a cast case for extra impact resistance
  • Magnets specially designed to fit and handle large piles of scrap
  • Billet lifting magnets that penetrate air gaps
  • Temperature-resistant magnets that can move hot steel immediately
  • Magnets for lifting coiled steel
  • And more
Mill Master D-seriesMILLMASTER D SERIESDesigned for steel mill operations, these magnets have a cast case with aluminum or copper coil; standard field, deep-field, and extra deep field models available.
RLSD SeriesRLSD SERIESDesigned for scrap processing operations.
GrabberGRABBER SERIESThese magnets have extra power built in to penetrate the air gaps for billet and bundle handling.
HeatmasterHEATMASTER SERIESThese magnets are designed to move hot steel directly from the cooling bed with no downtime.
CoilmasterCOILMASTER SERIESSpecifically designed for eye-vertical and eye-horizontal coil handling.
Cutting Table Magnet Systems
 Plasma, precision flame, and laser cutting tables have very specific material handling needs with regard to magnetic lifting. Our cutting table magnet systems are designed to meet those needs, allowing you to unload the skeleton and the cut parts in a single step.
TC SeriesCUTTING TABLE MAGNETSThese magnets are designed to meet the special material handling needs required in precision flame, plasma, and laser cutting table operations.
Plate and Shape Handling
 If you are dealing with lifting material that is not of a standard shape, such as oversized plates, billets pipes or tubing, you need a magnetic lifting system built to handle such items. We have magnets that can manage your oversized or oddly-shaped material lifting needs.
RL SeriesRECTANGULAR LIFT SERIESDesigned to lift plates of various sizes.
Bi-Polar SeriesBI-POLAR SERIESDesigned for handling tubing, rebar, bar stock, plate, coiled strips, structural shapes, castings, forgings, and bundles.
Controls for Lifting Magnets
 Control your lifting magnets with a solid-state digital power converter and magnet controller you can rely on. Our design runs cooler, is radio control compatible, works with all electromagnets, and has a variety of state-of-the-art features that can provide better magnet performance with less maintenance and noise. Add our reliable battery back-up system to prevent interruption of service in case of a brief power outage!
SSCSSC CONTROLMASTERSolid state digital power converter and magnet controller that is compatible with all electromagnets.
