We offer a wide range of lifting magnets that are simple and safe to operate. We offer magnets suitable for lifting flat and round materials of weights up to 11,000 pounds. We can also supply larger lifting magnets suitable for lifting everything from billets, bar stock, and plates to slabs, coils, and rebar. We even have durable lifting magnets designed for lifting hot and radioactive material.
Contact us for everything from permanent lifting magnets to battery-powered lifting magnets to circular electric lifting magnets, steel mill magnets and more.
Effectively handling and removing scrap can be a very important feature of any industrial operation, but not every lifting magnet is necessarily designed for effective scrap removal.
Walker Magnetics can provide scrap magnets that are composed of a rugged, ribbed case, heavy manganese steel bottom plate, and sturdy steel chains to make them specifically suited for scrap removal. We can provide custom industrial scrap removal magnets with diameters, weights, and sizes to fit cranes and customers specific needs.
Material Handling Magnets:
Another of our most popular magnet applications are our magnets for material handling. Whatever the need to safely handle, whether it be hot billets, long bar stock, wire coils, radioactive materials or plates of any sizes, we have the right industrial magnets. Our material handling magnets are among the safest, fastest and most economical ways to move materials, with a design that minimizes the likelihood of damage to materials and injury to employees.
Our separator magnets for applications like tramp iron removal, non-ferrous metal recovery or other separation processing, Walker Magnetics can help with a complete system for a new separation operation or an existing process.
We have magnetic pulleys, self-cleaning suspended magnetic separators, manual cleaning suspended magnetic separators, magnetic drum separators, and eddy-current separation systems to meet customer needs.
Walker Magnetics provides inspections, repairs and 3rd party evaluation for all magnet makes and models.
Thousands of Walker magnets are in service today performing safe, efficient material handling applications. Like any other type of industrial equipment, they should be maintained properly for optimum safety and performance.
Worn contact surfaces, lose or broken cam-links, weld cracks, worst of all, illegible or missing labels and nameplates are common problems with older magnets. After years of use, worn bottom surfaces may not yield their original rated lift capacities. After reconditioning, Walker calibrates the bottom surfaces to ensure that they yield their original rated lift capacities.
Don’t wait until your magnet has an expensive breakdown requiring emergency repairs. Walker will inspect your magnet and controls and advise what repairs are needed. Before proceeding with your repairs, you’ll receive an accurate estimate of the cost for your approval.
All Walker Magnetics authorized repairs will carry a full 12-month warranty on the work performed.
Walker also offers 3rd party evaluations on self-contained lifting devices not manufactured by Walker.
