Steel lathe chuck shields
Heavy-duty lathe chuck shields comply with ANSI and OSHA safety standards and protect individuals from flying particles and objects.
Lathe chuck shields provide a safeguard between individuals and point-of-operation or rotating hazards, and protect individuals from flying chips, sparks, coolant, lubricant, and other particles. The shield hinges left and rests at a 30° angle above the headstock, making it easy to change the chuck or workpiece. The operator doesn’t need to reach over the chuck to move the shield in and out of position. The front portion of the shield can also be hinged up to change the workpiece. These shields comply with OSHA and ANSI safety standards for lathes.

Annual Salary Survey
After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.
The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
