Danray Products LLC offers a heavy-duty steel lathe chuck shield designed for lathes and similar machines. It provides a safeguard between people and point-of-operation or rotating hazards and protects individuals from flying chips, sparks, coolant, lubricant, and other particles.
The shield hinges left and rests at a 30-degree angle above the headstock for simplified changeover of the chuck or workpiece. The operator doesn’t need to reach over the chuck to move the shield in and out of position. The front portion of the shield also can be hinged up to change the workpiece.
The shield complies with OSHA 29 CFR 1910.212 and the ANSI B11.6 safety standard for lathes.
