Magnet Loaner Program: Eliminate Nearly All Downtime
The MLTUS Magnet Loaner Program ensures that you always have a magnet available when you need one, even if your primary magnet is being repaired or you have a new magnet on order. We provide you with a used magnet, when available, so that you can continue operations during normal outages or downtime.
For example, if you are having a magnet repaired at our New Castle facility, we will supply you with a comparable used magnet upon request, if one is available. We offer the same outstanding service if you have ordered a new magnet that is in the process of being built or fabricated. You can’t afford a break in production, and you shouldn’t have to.
Some restrictions may apply. Subject to the availability of used magnets at the time of service.
Magnet Rental Program: Weekly and Monthly, Rent-to-Own
Throughout the course of the ebb and flow of the marketplace, sometimes you need extra equipment, and sometimes you don’t. The MLTUS Magnet Rental Program fills in the gaps and enables you to meet your production requirements without overspending on magnets that you won’t need to use full-time.
Our rental inventory includes new and rebuilt magnets for maximum productivity and our customized rental programs are ideal for a range of situations:
- When your primary magnet is out for repair and a loaner magnet is not available.
- When you are waiting for a new magnet to be completed and a loaner magnet is not available.
- If you need a magnet for a specific application or temporary use.
MLTUS offers regular weekly or monthly rentals with the option to buy. If, at the end of your rental contract, you would like to purchase the magnet, a portion of your rental fees will be credited toward the sale price.
All of our rental and rent-to-own plans are customized for each of our clients. For rates, availability and other options, please call 1-877-50-MLTUS.
Magnet Asset Management Program: Maximize Your Resources
Managing and maintaining a working collection of electromagnets is a challenging art, which is why at MLTUS we partner with our customers to ensure they get the most out of their lifting equipment. Our Magnet Asset Management Program is designed for companies that use magnets at multiple locations and helps keep all of your facilities as productive as possible.
To start the program, MLTUS will inventory all the magnets at each of your locations, including magnets that are infrequently used in daily operations. We then create a central database and will monitor the status of all magnets in service at your company as part of a magnet bank.
If one of your locations needs a magnet, we will use the magnet bank to quickly determine if one is available at another facility and will have it delivered to where it’s needed, without going outside the company. This program saves on unnecessary purchases or rentals, prevents downtime and can lead to significant cost savings.
Free Onsite Magnet Inspections: Prevent Accidents and Breakdowns
In the often brutal environment of electromagnetic lifting, knowing the condition and capabilities of your magnets is essential. MLTUS offers thorough onsite magnet inspections for customers who request this service, all at no charge. We also provide detailed status reports quarterly, semi-annually or annually to help you make informed decisions about managing your magnets. Our reports include:
- Resistance reading.
- Meg ohm reading.
- The condition of the magnet’s case (head and undercarriage).
- The condition of the leads.
- The temperature of the magnet at the time of inspection.
- A priority list of action items with remedies that can be implemented by your maintenance staff, whenever possible. This will minimize repair costs and keep your magnets healthy.
“Buddy System” Magnet Program: Double Your Magnets’ Lifespans
Conventional wisdom for magnet management looks a lot like this: Use one magnet all the time and keep a spare somewhere at your facility to use when your primary magnet fails. It’s time to throw out conventional wisdom.
The MLTUS “Buddy System” is a specialized program that uses two or more magnets on a rotating basis. When implemented properly, our program can dramatically extend the life of both magnets while significantly reducing the failure rate, saving you time and money.
Most magnets fail from overheating.
And this is why the MLTUS “Buddy System” is so important. We give you the ability to eliminate heat from the equation, which will extend the life of all of your magnets far beyond what you would achieve using a traditional approach.
The MLTUS “Buddy System” is recommended for applications where:
- Magnets are operated for more than 16 hours per day.
- Magnets are required to exceed their duty cycle rating.
- Hot material is being moved.
We can help you set up your own “Buddy System” that includes training to minimize disruption to your regular processes.
