The manual magnetic claw comes in two different capacities. It is used for transporting steel sheets horizontally and vertically, lifting plates from racks, pulling steel sheets out of shelving, as well as transporting flat pieces of magnetizable steel.
The clamp can be used for plate thicknesses from 1mm to 5 mm depending on the type.
Pressing down on the handle activates a cam which releases the magnetic claw from the workpiece.
This manual claw is maintenance-free and keeps the magnetic force for an unlimited period of time.
In order to achieve maximum capacity, the contact surface should be bright and free from dirt, oil, grease, scale, corrosion, paint etc.
