Magnetic Fixturing and Hand Lifters make any workplace safe by minimizing hand contact with hot or sharp-edged steel.
 

Lincoln Electric now offers a line of rugged, magnetic angle fixturing devices and hand lifters in its Radius tool Welding Gear product group. The magnetic fixturing tools can be used to position steel for tack welding or other pre- or post-weld operations. They also are ideally suited for cutting and grinding applications.

 
The magnetic fixtures are available in three different models intended for various material thickness or applications. All are easy to operate—a half turn of the knob can toggle the magnet on and off for part removal and cleaning. The fixtures are compact and lightweight, making them perfect for tight spaces.


 
In addition to magnetic fixtures, Lincoln Electric offers a manual hand lifter designed for small steel part lifting and sheet dragging. The manual hand lifter does not require batteries or electricity. A simple half turn of the knob switches the powerful hand lifter magnet on and off.


 
“These devices make it easy to align and hold small parts and sheet metal in place for tack welding,” indicates Jamy Bulan, Lincoln Electric Product Manager, Commercial Products. “Using the manual hand lifter can reduce contact with hot or sharp-edged steel. These tools represent just one new way we are working to protect the welding operator in the workplace.”
