Lifting magnets, power sources and electrical control systems: FAQ with Winkle Industries

Some magnets are simple, like the small, hand-held versions that hold paper clips or which affix photos, calendars and notes to metal. Magnets attached to mobile material handlers to lift metal are much more complicated. Following are answers to some of the most popular questions often asked about lifting magnets, power supply sources and electrical control systems. 

Optimag L-series lightweight lifting magnets

Winkle’s OptiMag “L-Series” lightweight lifting magnets for scrap recyclers now includes two model ranges; LDSA magnets, updated from the previous LSA standard, and a new ELDSA line, created specifically for smaller hydraulic scrap handling machines. Winkle says the new L-Series models were updated with the latest version of the company’s proprietary computer modelling software, and offer increased lifting capacity with lighter-weight magnets, as well as reduced costs through improved manufacturing and material efficiencies.  

Optimag G-Series magnets updated

This re-engineered and enhanced line-up of scrap magnets is developed for use in tandem with all standard makes and models of scrap handling grapples. Updated with the latest version of Winkle’s proprietary computer modelling software, OptiMag G-Series grapple magnets now offer increased lifting capacity with less weight.
