Bench grinders are not exactly the safest pieces of equipment out there. You always need to make sure that you recognise the core hazards associated with this tool. One of the best ways to ensure that machine operation remains safe, you should mount an e-stop for the bench grinder.
If you have a six or eight-inch bench grinder, we have the pedestal and emergency stop kit just for you. From the creators of industrial and utility bench grinder comes the heavy-duty E-Stop and Pedestal kit from Abbott & Ashby.
The e-stop is for any emergency when you need to stop the machine from running. This way, you avoid any hazardous event with just a touch of a button. The e-stop button helps prevent injuries or reduce the severity of specific damage currently in progress.
The innovation joins the forces of two systems, so you only have to purchase one. You can now grind and finish while ensuring your safety. As a push stop button, you halt the operation of the machine quickly using your hand or even your knee if the former is not free to do so.
You can use the kit to convert a ten-amp machine so it can have its own emergency stop. Several types of electrical machinery now need this specialised switch control equipped. A grinder is not an exception. It can be a dangerous tool, but an e-stop switch can help save lives and prevent further hazards.
The pedestal is constructed with steel sections that can resist wear and tear. It supports both six and eight-inch (150mm and 200mm) bench grinders. You do not need bench space to utilise the kit. It is designed for those with limited workspace. Also, it comes with all the tools required for setting up and installation.
