Walker developed the CER series with wireless remote to enhance safety and save time. Workers can switch the magnets on or off from 15 feet away. Push-button controls attract and release work pieces. For additional safety, the release features a two-button design. In addition, the device won’t lift if contact with the material isn’t secure.
Walker’s new wireless remote is available on the CER series magnets (models CER-5 through CER-12). The company says customers with existing CER magnets can upgrade to IR remote control.
These magnets can be used for in-plant handling of steel plate, flat stock, castings, forgings or machined components in all types of facilities, Walker notes.Walker Magnetics
