Goes beyond OSHA and ANSI safety requirements
These electrically interlocked drill press shields are ideal for small to larger size drill presses and similar machines, such as mills. When the semi octagonal, heavy-duty shield is swung out of position, the positive contacts on the microswitch open, sending a stop signal to the machine control. Each shield is furnished with an IP 67 rated safety microswitch.
All electrically interlocked drill press shields consist of a high impact-resistant, transparent polycarbonate semi-octagonal front shield that provides operator protection from flying chips and coolant. The adjustable shield clamps to a steel support rod that rotates 180° and operates the shield safety microswitch. The shield mounts to the left side of the machine using a steel mounting bracket.
