Electro Permanent lifting Magnets (EPM)
Battery and non-battery powered electro permanent lifting magnets
MAGBAT-Electro Permanent Magnets (EPM) offer 95% energy savings
and superior safety compared to traditional electromagnets.
They require power only during MAG and DEMAG phases, operating without power supply. The technology features an electro permanent magnetic circuit with alternating N/S poles, following the chessboard principle, in a magnetically neutral frame. Each pole includes a steel core surrounded by fixed polarity magnets (Neodymium). Beneath the steel core, a magnet with reversible polarity (AlNiCo) is surrounded by an electric coil. A short current pulse through the coil enables the magnetic field to move in and out of the system.
Advantages of Electro Permanent Lifting Magnets
- Enhanced Safety: Electro permanent lifting magnets provide a secure and reliable lifting solution, minimizing the risk of accidents and ensuring the safety of operators and surrounding personnel.
- Effortless Operation: These magnets offer easy and efficient operation with simple controls, allowing operators to lift and release loads quickly and effortlessly.
- Increased Productivity: Electro permanent lifting magnets enable fast and efficient material handling, reducing downtime and improving productivity in various industries.
- Versatility: These magnets are highly versatile and can lift a wide range of materials, including steel plates, profiles, pipes, and even irregularly shaped objects, making them suitable for diverse applications.
- Energy Efficiency: Electro permanent lifting magnets consume power only during the magnetization and demagnetization phases, resulting in significant energy savings till 95% compared to traditional permanent magnets.
- No Power Supply Required During Operation: Once the load is lifted, electro permanent lifting magnets do not require a continuous power supply, reducing dependence on electrical connections and allowing for greater mobility.
- Precise and Controlled Placement: These magnets offer precise positioning and controlled placement of loads, ensuring accurate alignment and reducing the risk of damage during handling.
- Reduced Maintenance: Electro permanent lifting magnets have minimal maintenance requirements, resulting in cost savings and increased uptime for lifting operations.
- Improved Magnetic Performance: With the ability to control the magnetic field strength, electro permanent lifting magnets provide optimized lifting capacity and secure grip on materials, improving overall lifting performance.

Our battery-powered electro permanent lifting magnets are designed to be used both indoors and outdoors.
We offer two ranges of electro permanent lifting magnets –battery-powered (DC) and AC-powered. Our series include;
- HM1-Fix Beam for lifting single steel sheets ≥ 5 mm
- HM2-Telescopic Beam for lifting single steel sheets ≥ 5 mm
- HM3 for lifting thin steel sheets ≥ 3 mm
- HM4 for vertical lifting of steel sheets
- HM5 for uncharging cutting machines in one movement
We strictly adhere to the requirements of the quality certification standard ISO 9001:2015.
Electro magnets require a continuous flow of electricity to maintain their magnetic field, making them less efficient and posing safety risks. If the current fails, the magnetic field also fails, and the workpiece drops down.
Electro permanent magnets, on the other hand only need a current pulse to activate the magnetic field, making them safer, more reliable and 95% more energy efficient.
In addition, electro permanent magnets are lightweight, maintenance-free, and have a perfect balance of magnetic flux, leading to greater stability and reliability. Overall, electro permanent magnets offer a safer, more efficient option for industrial applications.
Our lifting magnets are known for their safety, energy efficiency, high efficiency, and environmental friendliness. They are used in various sectors such as steel construction, machine construction, shipbuilding, steel trade, railway and rolling material, injection molding companies and various other industries.
Our lifting magnets have a wide range of lifting capacities, depending on the series and model. Please refer to our product catalog or contact us for more information.
We offer an option for fork lift adaptation for handling steel plates stored outdoors. Please contact us to discuss your specific needs and requirements.
We are thrilled to announce our recent partnership with Haizea Wind in Bilbao, where we have delivered 4 Telescopic electro-permanent magnetic Beams. These beams boast a remarkable lifting capacity of 75 tons, specifically engineered for the manipulation of heavy steel plates.
We are proud to be a part of the new facility at CS WIND in Portugal. As an international manufacturer of wind towers, CS Wind relies on heavy steel plates for the production of these structures. For the efficient transport of these crucial components, CS Wind has chosen MAGBAT’s telescopic electro-permanent magnetic beams.
Excited to announce our recent delivery of 2 new battery-powered electro-permanent magnetic lifters to our client in France, CONSTRUCTIONS MÉTALLIQUES BECT. These state-of-the-art lifters enable swift and safe handling of 15m profiles, lifting up to 2,600 kg.
175 years of Wacker Neuson marked the relocation of their Serbian branch to the new production hall.
We take immense pride in being a part of this milestone by delivering their first electro-permanent magnetic beam, enabling the safe and swift loading of their cutting machine.
