Electromagnetic overhead cranes

Electromagnetic Overhead Crane.png

Electromagnetic overhead cranes are the devices used to grab ferrous metal products by using an electromagnetic lift. It is essentially a really large magnet that permits the operator to connect with the metal and release it.

Assessing these cranes will require the user to take into account the trolley speed, the overall lifting height and the span width of the overhead girders. The lifting capacity is variable.
