This is a great starting point safety guard for you Piranha P-50. No, we don’t have guards for other Piranha machines because this is the only machine we had in our shop. However, this is a great template to safeguard your ironworker.
Piranha P-50 Guarding
- Constructed with heavy duty metal frame and polycarbonate screens.
- Provides guarding to the Punch, Shear and Notch work areas
The Piranha P-50 safety guard kit is designed into 3 main sections of the ironworker; the punch press area, notch and shear. The screens are made out of impact resistant polycarbonate (Lexan™) material. Polycarbonate is well known for its high impact strength. The punch area is made of steel rods in a cage format which is highly resistant to impact or projection.
The Piranha guard is built using the actual bolting pattern on the machine. The guard can be easily installed without any holes to drill and all fasteners are included.
Note: the guard was developed especially for the P50. It may restrain some operations or make them impossible. Using this guard on a different ironworker may not be possible.
These shields meet or exceed OSHA, ANSI and CSA standards for machine safety guarding.
Even though the guard is designed to use existing bolts on the machine, you may have to heavily modify the guarding to suit your needs. This is especially true for the punch side where a variety of tooling is used on the same area of the machine. We cannot guarantee that this guard will work for you straight out of the box.
