Repar2 IE Chuck Guard
Interlocked chuck guard for turning machines. Two models are stocked – IEA and IEB – and both are our go-to guards for Colchester and Harrison lathes. The diameter of the lathe chuck is usually the deciding factor on which model to choose.
The guards have a steel frame and standard models have easy-to-replace, 4mm-thick polycarbonate screens (code P). Laminated safety glass screens are available to order (code V) and are ideal for work with very hot swarf or particularly long abrasive offcuts.
IE guards are fixed to the headstock of the lathe with a micro-switched fixing attachment. The interlocked attachment is fitted with a removable, steel angle bracket which means that it can also be mounted on the side of the headstock. An adjustable friction pad is incorporated to aid controlled closing of the chuck guard and to help prevent it dropping quickly. The interlock is fitted into the mounting bracket and is a 2NC-1NO IP67-rated micro switch (code Mic 001). The safety interlock switch ensures that the guard must be in place before the lathe can be started.
DC injection braking is optional, as is our dual-channel safety control panel as well as an additional e-stop or kick-stop. Our ‘safety panels’ contain safety relays and dual-power switching contactors. This system provides redundancy and fault tolerance, and it complies with current Standards regarding safety-related parts of control systems.
