Magnetek's Flex Fit™ Transmitter

The Flex Fit series of wireless controls is a flexible and cost-effective option for mobile hydraulic applications. Compared to restrictive, hardwired pendants or stationary consoles, wireless Flex Fit controls help improve operator mobility. Operators are not tethered to equipment with a radio, and therefore are free to move away from the machine and potentially dangerous situations while keeping equipment running efficiently.

Magnetek History

Magnetek: A Legacy in Motion

Today, the Magnetek brand is known worldwide for the development, manufacture, and marketing of digital power and motion control systems for material handling, people-moving, and mining applications. The company began in 1984 through the formation of the LBO of Litton's Magnetics Group, including Louis Allis Drives & Systems.

In 1986, Magnetek acquired the Power Controls Corporation and in 1999 Electromotive Systems Inc. and Mondel Engineering. These two companies added electrification and control products to the company's portfolio as well as a full line of brakes used in a variety of industries. And, in 2003, with the acquisition of Telemotive Industrial Controls, the company would also add radio controls for overhead cranes into the mix.

Magnetek joined the Columbus McKinnon family in 2015.
