Repar2 AR Roller Units – Lathe Safety

We have recently been experiencing very high demand for AR roller units for turning machines (lathes) from customers who want to ensure that their machines comply with the latest health and safety regulations.

One way to ensure compliance with the requirements of Regulation 11 of the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations is to conform to the best practice guidelines as set out in the European Safety Norm – EN ISO 23125:2015.

The basics for manually-operated lathes are as follows:

1. interlocked chuck guard
2. feed and lead screw protection
3. saddle or splash guard if the risk of ejection demands it (risk assessment)
4. rear fixed guard
5. emergency stop
6. spindle braking above 1.5hp
7. gear drive cover (fixed or interlocked)

In addition, Regulation 11(1) of the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 states:

“Every employer shall ensure that measures are taken in accordance with paragraph (2) which are effective (a) to prevent access to any dangerous part of machinery or to any rotating stock-bar; or (b) to stop the movement of any dangerous part of machinery or rotating stock-bar before any part of a person enters a danger zone.”

(5) In this regulation – “danger zone” means any zone in or around machinery in which a person is exposed to a risk to health or safety from contact with a dangerous part of machinery or a rotating stock-bar; “stock-bar” means any part of a stock-bar which projects beyond the head-stock of a lathe.

AR roller units provide part of the solution to ensure that your lathes are fully compliant and help to prevent operator injury. Roller boxes are sold as a pair and we offer a range of different box and blind sizes for a variety of applications.

These guards are manufactured to the highest standards by Italian company Repar2, the renowned expert in industrial safety products for the global marketplace. As the official UK agent and distributor for Repar2 we are pleased to be able to supply AR roller units directly to our customers.

We can visit your premises to perform a full risk assessment and/or deliver and install your roller unit after purchase, providing peace of mind that the product is fitted correctly and that your machinery is compliant.

Alternatively, you can order AR roller units directly from our website and install them using our detailed pdf instruction guide.
