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-300, rated magnetic lifting power is 660 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-300 Example: T8, F1, and M2, 90% x 125% x 85% x 660 = 631 lbs.
