Poly-Carbonate Chip Shields For Milling Machines
These specially designed, quality-constructed chip shields are ideal for milling machines and place a barrier between flying chips (swarf), sparks, coolant from the machine, and the operators or other employees in the area. They can easily be moved in or out of position which provides for quick tool and part changes.
These shields are quick and easy to install. They attach directly to existing head machine bolts so they do not require drilling or tapping.
The Shield Construction
These shields are constructed of high-impact poly-carbonate material. Attached at the bottom of each section of the shield is durable, flexible neoprene material to keep flying chips and swarf contained as the bed moves up and down. The front shield is mounted on a heavy-duty universal steel arm which is used to swing it back into the exact position it was in before tool or workpiece changes. The arm is 29″ long and has an adjusting knob for raising and lowering the shield. The shield itself can also be used to hold a print.
