Lifting Magnets


MSA Magnetics provides both Active Shunting (Shallow Field) and Passive Shunting (Deep Field) Lifting Magnets. 

Lifting magnets will achieve different hold forces depending on the thickness of the steel it is in contact with. It is important to select your lifting magnet based on the weight and thickness of the material handled, as different types of lifting magnets have different capabilities. 

Read our blog post to learn more about the difference between Shallow Field (Active Shunting) Lifting Magnets and Deep Field (Passive Shunting) Lifting Magnets.

    Shallow Field (Active Shunting) Lifting Magnets are becoming increasingly popular as they are easy to use, reduce risk of operator error and can lift material as thin as 0.5mm. 

    MSA Magnetics stock Magswitch MLAY Lifting Magnets and Magswitch CE Magnetic Lifters. 

    Deep Field (Passive Shunting) Lifting Magnets are generally durable robust pieces of equipment, but will only lift their advertised capacity at the depth of their magnetic field. Therefore, a calculation is required by the operator to ensure the magnet is rated to lift the material at the given thickness.
