RL Series Rectangular Lifting Magnets

Rectangular lifting systems are designed to lift plate, slabs, and billets in compliance with the ASME B30.20 standard for below-the-hook lifting devices. RLs are found moving large plates to and from burning tables, fabricating areas, welding departments, and receiving and shipping areas. Typical users are steel warehouses, shipyards, fabricators, and metal working plants.

These magnets can be used individually or in multiples with different types of suspension systems. Walker engineers and supplies the complete system including power supplies, controls, and battery safety back-up systems. While the most popular magnet sizes range from 8X16 to 26X60, custom designs and options for standard units are available for special applications.
