MaxX series magnetic lifters with activation by high torque DC motors now opens new possibilities for lifting magnets. Called AutoMaxX Lifters, the magnet is activated and de-activated by an in-line DC gearmotor complete with motor control and limit switches.
This means the operator does not have to be in close proximity to the magnet in order to move the activating lever. With this system permanent lifting magnets can be remote from the operator or within the confines of other equipment where manual control is not possible. In many cases this offers advantages over conventional electromagnets.
