New Lathe Chuck Shields
Safeguard Personnel for OSHA and ANSI Safety Compliance Rockton, Illinois, November 29, 2006: Danray Products LLC has just released a line of heavy-duty lathe chuck shields that are designed to apply to lathes or other similar machine applications. The 3/16"-thick polycarbonate shields provide a barrier between the chuck and workpiece and the operator. The shields also deflect chips, coolant, and other particles. The shields hinge up to the left and out of the way for changing the chuck, using the chuck key, and changing the workpiece. The operator doesn't need to reach over the chuck to move the shields in and out of position (which is a possible safety hazard), and the shields will not interfere with lathes that have a rear guard/backsplash. These shields comply with OSHA 29 CFR 1910.212 and ANSI B11.6 safety standards for machine tools. Our lathe chuck shields are proudly made in the United States of America!
