Sizing Information

There are two types of screens available for milling guards; the half-moon screen and the flat screen types. To size the screen, you need to calculate the width of the milling head near the spindle and add about 80mm (3”) to that measure. This will give you approximately the diameter of the screen (A), in many case you will have to round up to the nearest screen size in the following table.

Why Have Safety Interlocking?

An electrical safety interlock prevents the machine from operating when the shield is opened.  This safety guard features an electric switch that disables the machine’s motor.  The switch is made in such a way as to prevents easy bypass of the interlock switch.

When we do on-site visits, we often see safety shields moved to the side and never put back on the machine.  An interlock is a simple solution to prevention of safety guard misuse or removal.
