turning machines

turning machines (Lathes) – BS EN ISO 23125

The basics for manually-operated lathes

  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)

The basics for CNC lathes

  1. full enclosure with interlocked point of operation access (Additional access points for maintenance and infrequent access may be fixed so a tool is required to remove.)
  2. provision for set-up mode with hold to run or two-hand control with reduced speed movement
  3. exhaust extraction (if risk assessment demands it – depends on levels of cutting oil/coolant mist generated)
  4. strong, properly-maintained vision panels capable of withstanding foreseeable ejections
  5. emergency stop
