Cylindrical grinders are one of the most dangerous machines in any shop. The grinding wheels spin at high speeds and if not carefully used, may shatter and send debris flying towards the operator and bystanders at great velocity. It is important to install specially engineered guards for use on your cylindrical grinders.
Our cylindrical grinder guards are made from heavy gauge steel and highly resistant polycarbonate screens. These guards are installed directly in front of the grinding wheel protecting the operator from accidental wheel shattering, sparks and chips. The screen itself is moveable thanks to a wheel and rail system installed in front of the table. The rail system can be positioned such that all control levers and buttons are still accessible.
Our cylindrical grinder guards come equipped with a latching safety interlock switch. The machine can only be enabled when the door is closed. Once the machine is set in motion, the guard locks in position and cannot be opened until hydraulics or grinding wheel is retracted.
