A CER magnet, pound for pound, is the least costly, but most powerful magnet available. Due to the deep penetration of the magnetic field, it is less susceptible to adverse surface conditions than any other self-contained magnet.
CER magnets are ideally suited for in-plant handling of steel plate, flat stock, castings, forgings, or machined components in all types of industrial plants, machine shops, fabricating shops and steel warehouses. Handling of loose parts such as nuts and bolts is also a popular application for the CER-16 and CER-20.
The maximum rated lift capacity is based upon lifting clean, smooth, flat, low-carbon steel plate of ample thickness with the full area of the magnet’s lifting surface in contact with the load. De-rating is required for plates with rust or scale, thin plates, and alloy steels. More detailed ratings are contained in the operators manual and safety instructions
