Why Safeguard Your Surface Grinder?

Ferndale Safety developed this surface grinder safety guard to prevent ejections from the work area.  Two things could happen:

A) The wheel could shatter or explode due to the:

  • Stresses on the grinding wheel, such as connecting to a workpiece too fast or hard
  • A wheel imbalance could be due to coolant pooling or a defective wheel.
  • An internal defect, such as a hairline crack, could cause the wheel to shatter.  An old wheel could also cause this.

When the wheel explodes, it turns high speed and can throw fragments at high speed.

B) A thrown object or part can be caused by:

  • The magnetic chuck left “off” accidentally
  • The wheel could grab a loose or improperly positioned piece.

This surface grinder safety guard prevents ejections for the above scenarios and protects you and anybody in the immediate area.

Important Information

Please take a look at our backsplash wall to provide a rear barrier.  This guard only protects the front and sides of the work area and grinding wheel.
