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-2000, rated magnetic lifting power is 4,400 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-2000 Example: T8, F1, and M2, 90% x 125% x 85% x 4,400 = 4,208 lbs.
