Lifting Magnets

A magnet is an object that attracts ferromagnetic materials such as iron. The magnet creates a magnetic field that generates the attractive force. Lifting magnets are high strength magnets that generate a very strong magnetic field and attractive force. The attractive force can then be used to lift and move large metal objects. Lifting magnets are typically found in industrial environments and are used to move large pieces of material from one place to another.
