BOYNE CITY, Mich.—Industrial Magnetics, Inc. (IMI) recently announced a new line of pre-engineered, certified, and ready-to-weld standard padeyes for manufacturers looking to improve product time to market.
For manufacturers whose product design requires a padeye, a great deal of time and expense can be incurred in the process of engineering, fabricating, machining, and certifying their own lifting padeyes in-house. By offering pre-engineered, certified, and ready-to-weld padeyes, IMI aims to help these manufacturers speed up the production, testing, and approval processes, expediting the delivery of their finished product to market.
Composed of A36 carbon steel and available in 6 standard sizes, the padeyes are rated for ½ ton up to 6-½ tons, and come with a reamed hole to fit a shackle pin/bolt (sold separately) at +/- 0.001inch. The padeyes feature a date code and a guided weld line, as well as listing the requirements for the weld specification or type and the welder’s qualifications.
