Powerful magnets with pull-forces greater than 500kg are usually the exclusive domain of large industrial and commercial companies that require heavy-duty magnets with high lifting and holding capacity. Businesses like foundries, storage facilities, steel manufacturers and many other commercial operators need strong magnets in order to safely move or load their steel-based products and materials. This often includes daily operations in the warehouse or on the construction site. AMF has Magnetic Lifters in a range of sizes and with lifting capacities to suit any type of commercial operation. In some situations, large Neodymium magnets with high pull-force ratings are used by individuals for metal retrieval purposes. These so-called ‘Fishing Magnet’ devices contain super strong rare earth magnets and have an eyelet fitting to allow a retrieval rope to be attached to the magnetic device. The device can then be used to retrieve valuable metallic equipment or personal property that has been dropped or lost in watery environments or deep cavities. In most cases, these metallic valuables would otherwise be almost impossible to recover.
AMF supplies a range of Plate Magnets with enormous magnetic power that are able to remove dangerous metal contaminants from food production and product manufacturing systems. These industrial strength magnetic devices are usually suspended over moving conveyors and remove ferrous tramp iron and any other metal fragments from the raw materials passing below. These Plate Magnets are crucial in ensuring consistent product quality that is safe for human consumption and also in maintaining the efficient and reliable operation of automated machinery and factory equipment over the long term. Separator Bar magnets are tubular magnets that also perform a role in attracting and removing swarf and metal fragments from production lines and can also prevent discarded or misplaced metals from accidentally entering organic-only waste containers. The magnetic tubes are available in various strengths and can be configured into a magnetic grate device that also arrests dangerous metal fragments as they pass down a chute. Some have a self-cleaning function for safer, hands-free removal of the collected metal. AMF has a wide range of Warehouse and Industrial magnetic products that can help protect consumers, keep your workplace more efficient and also maintain a safe workplace environment for employees. Most online AMF orders over $30 receive free standard shipping to anywhere in Australia.
AMF has industrial strength magnets.
Fixing Plate magnets are another good example of how super-strong magnets make an important contribution to large-scale industrial projects, construction sites and civil engineering works. Fixing Plate magnets can bond to the steel type of formwork that is now more commonly used to produce prefabricated concrete sections in off-site factories. These Fixing Plate magnets create the recessed void space in the formed concrete so lifting gear can be attached to the preformed concrete section for easier transportation. The magnets can be removed after the concrete cures and then reused. The concrete sections can then be lifted, transported to the project and installed on site.

WARNING Magnetic products with a pull force of more than 500kg are for use by professional operators in industrial or commercial settings. This type of equipment is potentially extremely dangerous and definitely should not be used by inexperienced handlers or those not familiar with the power of large and powerful magnets.
Best uses for magnets with 500kg+ pull force?
Heavy steel materials and equipment can be difficult to lift and manoeuvre with traditional types of handling equipment. Magnetic lifters and retrieval magnets can make this type of specialised work easier and safer to perform. Heavy-duty magnetic tools should only be considered for use in controlled work environments such as factories or on industrial sites.
