The BUX BM²-13, BUX BM²-25 and BUX BM²-36 are all single units.

The BUX BM²-50 is two magnets on an adjustable spreader beam operated from a single battery pack.

These versatile Walker magnets have widespread application for handling of plates, die blocks, machined components, smooth castings and forgings. These battery-powered magnets are extremely useful throughout the plant, around the yard, receiving and shipping areas, storeroom, cut-off saws, burning and welding tables, and machine tools, such as grinders, millers, shapers, drill presses, etc. Batteries not included.

The maximum rated lift is based upon lifting clean, smooth, flat, low-carbon steel plate, 2″ or thicker with the full area of the magnet’s lifting surface in contact with the load. Derating is required for plates with rust or scale, plates thinner than 2″, and alloy steels. More detailed ratings are contained in the Operator’s Manual and Safety Instructions.
