Magnetic system to unload 6m long bundles of metal tubing from a container

We are looking for a magnetic system to unload 6m long bundles of metal tubing from a container (weight 600kg). Our initial thoughts were we could use a spreader bar on a crane with a magnet on each end.

The Magnetic Pipe Lifter is probably the best product we carry for this application. There is a 300kg and a 600kg option and these can be found in our Magnetic Lifter category. The lifters have a 3.5 times safety factor however their load bearing is tested against set thicknesses of steel. For more specific information please review the product pages for each specific Magnetic Pipe Lifter 89131P or 89132P. If you are unsure of the suitability of these lifters for your application please don't hesitate to contact our customer service team.
