Industrial Electromagnets

Rotary Burnand recently celebrated 120 years of business as a leading manufacturer of industrial electromagnets and electromagnetic equipment for industrial applications. Today we have our own comprehensive design, consultancy and test facilities at our premises in Sheffield. Here, we employ a team of highly skilled and experienced staff capable of dealing with all aspects of electromagnetic equipment.  Our industrial electromagnet services include design, optimisation, consultancy, manufacture, full diagnostic and repair facilities, LOLER testing and electrical certification and industrial electromagnet control systems. If you have an industrial electromagnet application we can certainly assist. 


Rotary Burnand is a highly respected name the industry and our Burnand industrial electromagnets are renown  for their robust construction and longevity. We offer a range of standard specifications which cover most handling requirements but we can also manufacture bespoke electromagnets to meet your exact requirements including deep field, lightweight and bi-pole electromagnets. All our new industrial electromagnets are made to order here at our premises in Sheffield using the highest specification of winding materials and insulations. 

We offer a full electromagnet service including provision of electromagnet control systems, cable management, DC plugs and sockets and lifting beams. 


Rotary Engineering, incorporating the renowned Burnand name including all the associated skill and expertise, offer an industrial electromagnet repair service. Industrial electromagnet repairs are a key element of our business and we can return almost any magnet to ‘as new’ specification, so if your lifting magnet has failed we will almost certainly be able to repair it. It's not just Burnand electromagnets that we repair, we can also repair Witton Kramer, Walker, Igranic, Boxmag, Demag, Sav Walker and many more. 

Our industrial electromagnet service starts with a full diagnostic and report on the condition of your electromagnet. You will then receive a detailed report and itemised quotation to bring your electromagnet up to as new standard. Our service is highly cost effective and our repairs are guaranteed for 6 months. All repaired electromagnets are LOLER certified prior to despatch.


We also offer LOLER (Lifting Operations & Lifting Equipment Regulations 1998) testing and certification for electromagnets. LOLER testing should be undertaken every 6 months. We can LOLER test at your site or here in Sheffield, contact us to discuss your requirements and we will offer you the most cost effective solution.


Any electromagnet requires a control panel for efficient operation. We offer new AC and DC electromagnet control panels and we can repair your existing control panel. DC Electromagnet Control panels are now rare but we have the expertise to build you a replacement panel or repair an existing DC Electromagnet Control panel.


Our expertise in electromagnet design is highly valued and so we also offer design and consultancy projects to evaluate electromagnetics for new applications. Our clients include suppliers to aerospace, defence and automotive sectors.
