Safety Chip Shields for Drill Presses and Milling Machines
These sturdy safety chip shields provide protection from flying chips, coolant, and rotating parts. They are usually applied to small drill presses, milling machines (mills), etc., and can be magnetically or permanently mounted. The shield can be attached to any ferrous surface on the machine by an 80-lb. pull, 3 1/4-inch diameter magnetic base. If a flat, smooth, ferrous surface is not available, a 3 1/4-inch x 5 1/4-inch mounting plate is also furnished with each shield.
The impact-resistant, 3/16-inch-thick clear polycarbonate shield provides visibility to the point of operation. These chip shields adjust and lock in any vertical position.
Complies with OSHA 1910.212 – General Safety Requirements / ANSI B11.8 – Manual Drilling Machines / ANSI B11.23 – CNC Drilling Machines

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.
PROTECTOR Series Shields are manufactured by Rockford Systems LLC in Rockford, Illinois, USA. All shields are shipped within 2-3 weeks.
