IMI VersaLift™ Magnet (Flat or Round Surfaces), Capacity 275-2500 Lbs (Flats)
These compact and powerful Rare Earth lifting magnets are for use on flat or round surfaces. Magnets contain an internal ON/OFF release device that does not contact or damage the surface of the part.
To operate Test Feature, pull spring loaded handle out and rotate it to the “TEST” position. Lift load approximately 2-3” to verify the magnet has the capacity to lift your load. Once verified, place load back down and turn the handle to the “ON” position. Never complete entire lift operation in “TEST” position.

NOTE: Lifting Values for the VersaLift™ Magnets are stated at 33% of the actual value. We recommend when lifting sheets over 8', use 2 or more lifts on a spreader bar to prevent sheet flexing, sagging or peel-off. Thin material is susceptible to magnetic bleed through, resulting in two sheets being lifted at once. Round Lifting Values are based on ideal conditions. Consult the factory before specifying these magnets for use on round materials. *Max. sheet lengths are selected due to sag characteristics of specified sheet. The item to be lifted must cover the entire length and width of the magnetic poles to properly engage and release the part. CF = Consult Factory, NA = Not Applicable (Magnets will not turn "ON" with stated thicknesses.)
WARNING: Never stand under load being lifted. Always use extra caution. Only use magnetic lifts on material that does not flex or bend. The surface of the lift, and the load being lifted, need to be clean and free of chips, oil, slag, dirt, etc. Lifting magnets must be centered on load. Not recommended for painted or finish coated surfaces.
