NEW 12", 18", AND 24" Steel Lathe Chuck Shields Safeguard Individuals for OSHA and ANSI Compliance
Rockford, Illinois: Danray Products LLC recently introduced 12", 18", and 24" steel lathe chuck shields for lathes or similar machines. These heavy-duty 14-gauge steel lathe chuck shields serve two basic functions: (1) they provide a safeguard between individuals and point-of-operation or rotating hazards, and (2) they protect individuals from flying chips, sparks, coolant, lubricant, and other particles.
The mounting bracket attaches to the face of the headstock. The shield hinges left and rests at a 45° angle above the headstock, making it easy to change or adjust the chuck or workpiece. The operator doesn’t need to reach over the chuck to move the shield in and out of position, and the shield will not interfere with lathes that have a rear guard/backsplash.
These shields comply with OSHA 29 CFR 1910.212 and the ANSI B11.6 safety standard for lathes.
