Ever heard of Residual Magnetism? What is it, and how does it affect your Lifting Magnets?

Residual Magnetism occurs when a magnet fails to turn completely off. The magnetic flux is a result of a circuit being created between the rare earth magnets inside and the steel body of the magnet. The level of Residual Magnetism depends on the Shunting Technology and the overall design of the magnet.

These next 3 magnets are a good example of Residual Magnetism found in lifting magnets and why magnets with no Residual Magnetism are the safest option:

Extreme Residual Magnetism



Low Residual Magnetism



No Residual Magnetism



MSA Pro-Lift and Magswitch Lifting Magnets are designed to have a clean break of magnetic flux at the OFF position. We ensure the highest industry safety standard of our industrial Lifting Magnets while making sure they are easy to use!
