Milling Machine Guards

The Creation of New Milling Machine Guards

Rockford milling machine guards come in two styles that, between them, cover most milling machines commonly used in machine shops and small workshops. If neither style is suitable for your manual milling machine or CNC milling machine, we can modify a standard Rockford guard or, alternatively, we can design, manufacture and install cost-effective bespoke guards. The Regulations of Using Milling Machine Guards The main regulations covering milling machines are the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations (PUWER). Rockford JSA and SSA guards that are correctly specified and installed will help employers meet their PUWER obligations for manual milling guards and CNC milling guards.

Moreover, the milled material may cause serious injuries, because the metal chip is very sharp. Further the metal pieces lying on the table can cut your skin;...
