Self-Contained Lifting Magnets

Walker designs and manufactures lifting magnets for a wide range of applications using permanent, electro-permanent, battery powered, and electromagnetic technologies. Walker Self-Contained Lifting Magnets are versatile, compact, easy to operate and can be used on flat and round material ranging from 0 to 11,000lbs. Our larger lifting magnets are designed for applications such as handling billets, bundles, bar stock, slabs, plates, structurals, long bar stock, rail, hot material, coils, pipe rebar, radioactive material, slag, and more. These magnets are commonly used in steel mills, scrap yards, loading docks, warehouses, foundries, shipyards, coil and pipe distributors, and other users of applicable steel products.


Permanent Lifting Magnets:

Our standard heavy lifting magnets can easily fit round bar, pipe, and flat plates. We have lifting magnets for cranes that have high lift capacity but are low weight and simple to move into position. These large industrial lifting magnets contain the highest quality rare earth neodymium magnetic material for smooth and easy magnetic lifting.


Battery Powered Lifting Magnets:

Each of our battery-powered lifting magnets has its own battery with no wires or cords that can interfere. If you need to operate your magnets in an area without direct access to electric power, these are a great choice.


Circular Electric Lifting Magnets:

Our circular electric lifting magnets are self-contained, affordable, and extremely powerful round lifting magnets. They are great for handling loose parts and for a variety of in-plant applications such as handling steel lifting plate, machined components, forgings, and castings.


Walker engineers and manufactures the highest quality electromagnetic, electro-permanent, and permanent magnetic chucks for grinding, machining, milling, turning, EDM, and molding applications. We also offer special chuck designs to meet our customers’ unique application needs.


Grinding Chucks:

Walker Magnetics are pioneers and innovators when it comes to the industrial magnetic chuck. For grinding operations, our electromagnetic chuck or permanent chuck is exceptional at workholding and have the power you need for accurate holding for your grinding and EDM operations. We offer standard grinding chucks as well as low-profile, magnetic micro-pitch and traverse bar pole chucks to meet your needs.

Rotary Chucks:

If your business uses rotary tables for precision machine work, you will need reliable rotary chucks. You can be completely confident in the effectiveness of all the rotary chucks we offer at Walker Magnetics, which include permanent magnetic chucks for lathing, tooling and grinding, permanent magnetic chucks for solid rounds, holding rings and bearing races, and electromagnetic and electro-permanent chucks for hard turning and free-state grinding of circular workpieces. 


Milling Chucks:

You are sure to find the exact magnetic chuck for the milling operations in your industry and your business among our high-quality milling chucks. We offer an electro-permanent magnetic chuck and a permanent magnetic chuck to encompass all your milling operations.


Electromagnetic Chuck Controls:

If you work with electromagnetic chucks, make sure you have a control system designed by the company that invented the electromagnetic chuck. We have both manual chuck control systems and automatic release chuck control systems with full, variable and residual holding. Choose machine-mounting, machine-mounting current sense or wall-mounting chuck control for your electromagnetic chucks.
