VTL Vertical Turning Lathe Guard
The OSHA/ANSI expectation is that the VTL guard is completely covering the work piece and the VTL chuck. This initiative prevents the operator from reaching under, over, and through, thus prevents the operator from getting pulled into the machine. Additionally, they expect the guard to remain up and locked in place until the table comes to a complete stop. Odiz Safety has a solution that is up to but not limited to the following options:
