Ferndale Safety has designed special vertical turret lathe safety guards that offer excellent protection and usability. You may also know these machines as VTL’s, turret lathes or vertical lathes.
Ferndale’s guards have large chip and coolant barriers that are easy to open for full access to the chuck. They are raised or lowered easily and feature electrical safety interlocks that can be integrated with the machine.
VTL’s can be very large machines and are difficult to guard sometimes. The chuck is much larger than you typically see on a conventional lathe, which poses some challenges when it comes to safety guarding. The parts are loaded onto the chuck with an overhead crane, or sometimes with a forklift and access to the side and top is necessary.
Take a look below to see our products for these machines. We can also customize these to your needs. We are more than happy to help you find the right solution for your machine. Contact us if you have any questions.
