MONTREAL (June 28, 2022)– Attendees at the International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS) 2022 will be able to see first-hand new safety products from Ferndale Safety, a North American-based machine safety manufacturer and provider.  Their unique machine safety products notably include Vertical Turret Lathe (VTL) guarding and electronic brakes for single-phase motors.

A proactive approach to safety guarding prevents injuries, accidents, and many hundreds of thousands of dollars in lost productivity, fines, and downtime.  Ferndale Safety’s president, Mr. Pierre Maheu, stresses that if more management-level personnel knew how easy it is to make machinery safer to use with off-the-shelf safety guarding, we could prevent many worksite accidents in the first place.  He states that OSHA fined one company in Florida almost $400,000 with countless downtime due to the lack of machine guarding.

The Ferndale Safety engineering team has worked hard designing the next-generation VTL and Vertical Boring Mill (VBM) guarding solutions over the last two years.  The Ferndale VTL guard features modularity and easy assembly with a typical installation time of 2 hours while offering protection against entanglement hazards, thrown chips, and coolant splashing.

Ferndale Safety will also show off their new MakeSafe product line of single-phase motor brakes.  In short, these brakes install in seconds and provide almost instantaneous stopping on machines such as bench grinders and band saws.
