Attachable, Rigid-Arm Magnetic Base Chip Shields –
These magnetic base chip shields can be used on lathes, small milling machines, drills, grinders, band saws, etc. These shields can be attached to any ferrous surface on the machine by an 80-lb. pull magnetic base. If a flat, smooth, ferrous surface is not available, a mounting plate (3 1/2″ x 4 5/8″) is also furnished. Large polypropylene plastic handles are used for easy positioning and locking.
The transparent portion of the chip shield is constructed of high-impact-resistant, 3/16″-thick clear poly-carbonate material. It is furnished with a circular base which measures 3 1/4″ in diameter. An 8″ aluminum base extrusion is provided and attaches to the magnetic base. Also available is a 12″ extruded-aluminum arm extension. This arm can be cut to a shorter length if required for your application.

FEATURES & BENEFITS
PROTECTOR Series Shields are constructed of 14-gauge powder-coated steel and 3/16” shock-proof and oil-resistant polycarbonate, creating an extremely tough, rigid and durable safety shield to protect operators from flying debris, lubricants, coolants and swarf.
PROTECTOR Series Shields are modular in design so that shield shape, size, mount, arm, offset, lighting, interlocking and safety monitoring can be configured to provide the best solution for even the toughest machine guarding challenge.
WORKSPACE SAFETY LIGHTING
PROTECTOR Series Shields can include color-changing LED lighting nested into the frame of the shield to illuminate the work area during machine operation. The LED light strip is integrated into the shield frame and each strip packs 262 Lumens of light per linear foot.
SAFETY INTERLOCKS & MONITORING
PROTECTOR Series Shields can be upgraded with a safety-rated interlock switch or switches, dependent upon application. Interlocking shields exceed OSHA CFR 1910 regulations and ANSI B11 Series standards, and are considered a best safety practice.
