Large diameter round bars represent a particular tough challenge for magnetic handling—one that we have been taking on for a long time. Thanks to their high magnetic penetration depth, TRUNINGER lifting magnet systems move even the heaviest steel safely and reliably.
The main field of application of systems for lifting round steel bars are steel mills and specialized steel trade warehouses. TRUNINGER technology proves its market leadership there day after day.
Faster, safer and more efficient handling of round bars
A properly designed magnet system allows fast and safe access to stock in the warehouse reception, storage bays and dispatch areas. By using a TRUNINGER magnet system you save not only space, but lots of time as well.
While bars of small to medium diameter are often handled using magnet systems for carrying merchant bars, for large diameters TRUNINGER supplies magnet systems with deep magnetic penetration to enable safe transport of heavy loads. The magnets also have ideally adapted pole plate shapes to ensure reliable handling.

The type of steel handled in round bar transport is often not just mild steel, but also quality steel to be used as the raw material for cutting processes. The DDS demagnetisation technology developed by TRUNINGER is an ideal add-on and provides a perfect complement to the magnet system.
TRUNINGER magnets and spreader beams can be universally used for moving stock in and out of storage and for internal transport, e.g. around a sawing shop. Thanks to high levels of availability they also ensure a constant and safe material flow.
- Retractable poles simplify transport of bundles and singles
- Cradle carriers allow storage of homogenous products in minimum space
- Swivelling magnets adapt to different load widths
- Finger poles prevent the load from rolling off
- Fine control of magnet lifting force for fast order picking
- Almost complete removal of residual magnetism (< 2mT)
