Calculating Maximum Lifting Magnet Loads
Maximum lifting power is different for plate and round material lifting, and also depends upon carbon content of stock, stock thickness, and surface finish.
Calculation Example: FUGL-100, rated magnetic lifting power is 220 lbs.
The formula for calculating range of lifting magnets capacity is: T x F x M x Capacity
T = thickness, F = surface finish, M = material,
FUGL-100 Example: T8, F1, and M2, 100% x 125% x 85% x 220 = 234 lbs.
