TC6XL Saddle Guard – Front Fitting
Repar2 extra large front fitting saddle guard for lathes.
Lead time 1-2 days.
Product Technical Information
In order to comply, lathes must conform to the standards set out in EN12840.
The basics for manually-operated lathes are as follows:
- interlocked chuck guard
- feed and lead screw protection
- saddle or splash guard if the risk of ejection demands it (risk assessment)
- rear fixed guard
- emergency stop
- spindle braking above 1.5hp
- gear drive cover (fixed or interlocked)
We are extremely proud of this new guard. It was a joint development between us and Repar2 following a growing number of requests from our customers to supply a saddle guard for the largest turning machines.
The TC6XL is fixed in front of the lathe tool post on the largest lathes such as Binns & Berry, Broadbent, Churchill and Skoda. The screen swivels on a locking telescopic arm which is mounted to a swivel mount, which is in turn fitted directly to the tool post or to the front of the saddle via a right-angle bracket.
