Screen Sizing Information

To find what screen size you need, take down the diameter of the largest chuck you use on your lathe. Multiply the diameter you measured by 1.5 and choose the screen size in A that is closest to your answer. Using this formula will guarantee that you will have room under the guard even though the jaws are open beyond the diameter of the chuck.


POL/VT300CM300mm (11 3/4″)240mm (9.5″)
POL/VT350CM350mm (13 3/4″)240mm (9.5″)
POL/VT400CM400mm (15 3/4″)240mm (9.5″)
POL/VT450CM450mm (17 3/4″)240mm (9.5″)
POL/VT500CM500mm (19 1/2″)240mm (9.5″)
POL/VT600CM600mm (23 1/2″)240mm (9.5″)

Example: You measure the chuck to be 12″ in diameter by 9″ in width.  Twelve inches, multiplied by 1.5 gives you a result of 18″. The closest measurement for the A dimension is 17 3/4″. Select 17 3/4″ from the “A” dimension drop down box above.  Select 9.5″ from the “B” dimension drop down box as it’s the closest to the width you measured.

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.
