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. When the 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.
