Bi-polar Magnets

Download Bi-Polar Magnet Information

Ohio’s Bi-Polar Lifting Magnets do more than lift steel. They lift your profitability. These magnets handle finished and semi-finished steel and structural products. More importantly, they handle them without slinging, blocking and hooking operations. And Ohio Bi-Polar Lifting Magnets feature efficient, low-amp draw designs that cut energy costs every day. Add a price that is always reasonable and you’re looking at today’s superior value in lifting magnets.

Ohio provides a wide spectrum of standard and special bi-polar magnet designs with options to meet any application. These designs uniquely handle higher-temperature material than a standard rectangular magnet through a specially positioned magnet coil. A specifically designed internal construction – just the right balance of wire to steel – develops maximum flux density for heavy-duty lifting with minimum power consumption. Furthermore, Ohio’s bi-polar magnets use fewer square inches of magnet pole to contact the load, substantially reducing heat transfer and thus retaining maximum lifting capacity.

  • 100% lifting area with a virtual uniform field across the entire length of the magnet

  • Heavy-duty magnet construction

  • Pole shoe lengths from 24” to 100” or to any special length required

  • Handles higher temperature material compared to standard rectangular magnets.

  • Low power consumption

  • 230 VDC Standard; special voltages available on request

  • Custom designed pole shoes for radial or irregular shapes

  • Renewable or auxiliary pole shoes can be supplied for all sizes.

  • Designs available for hot-work applications

Typical Industrial Applications

  • Versatile magnet design for various mill applications

  • Easily lifts and transports Plates, Billets (hot and cold) Coils (eye vertical and horizontal), Bundles, Rebar, Rails, Tubes, Pipes and Structural products
