Product Technical Information
Safety guards for boring machines are available with both left and right-hand fitting. They can either be fixed directly to the machine head or floor mounted by using our optional height-adjustable post, MCL 25400c.
The steel-framed guard with its impact-resistant polycarbonate window lifts vertically on a hardened linear guide rail and is fully counterbalanced, thus avoiding any manual handling issues. There are three models available as standard, each with different size screens and column heights to suit. Each model is supplied with left or right-hand fitting which is determined by the part number specified.
Standard and supplied interlocking is with an IP67 safety switch (code 14Mic 004). Solenoid interlocking and DC injection braking is optional as is our dual-channel safety control panel, along with an additional e-stop or kick-stop. Our ‘safety panels’ contain safety relays and dual-power switching contactors. This system provides redundancy and fault tolerance, and it complies with current Standards regarding safety-related parts of control systems.
The AL guard and optional MCL post are both heavy and should be installed by a minimum of two people. Additional plates or brackets may be required to bolt the guard directly to the head of the machine – these are not included. When fitting directly to the head of the machine, ensure the column height is clear from possible obstructions or collisions. The column and guard will move up and down with the head and it is probable that the column and guard will be higher than the machine. Verify that the safety guard cannot collide with any buzz bars, overhead cranes, light fixtures, beams or the workshop roof.
