Danray Products LLC offers heavy-duty steel lathe chuck shields that are designed for lathes or similar machines. Lathe chuck shields serve two basic functions: (1) they provide a safeguard between individuals and point-of-operation or rotating hazards, and (2) they protect individuals from flying chips, sparks, coolant, lubricant, and other particles. The shield hinges left and rests at a 30° angle above the headstock, making it easy to change 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 can also be hinged up to change the workpiece. These shields comply with OSHA 29 CFR 1910.212 and the ANSI B11.6 safety standard for lathes.
