Nelsa Machine Guarding Systems.pdf - .PDF file.

Procter Machine Guarding is relaunching the Nelsa range of high-quality machine shop guards, backed by a commitment to high standards of customer service.

This range of standard guards was originally developed by EJA and is now being manufactured in the UK under licence by Procter, meaning that the guards are, once again, available on short deliveries.

Included in the range are slide and swing-aside milling machine guards, just-swing-aside milling machine guards, sliding lathe shields, saddle-mount lathe shields, lathe chuck guards, Safetispeed drill guards, magnetic safety-chip guards and grinding wheel guards.

These are all available in a variety of sizes to suit the majority of machine tools in use throughout the UK.

Where appropriate, the guards are supplied complete with interlocks for incorporation within the machine’s safety-related control system.

Designed to be mounted easily on machine tools with minimum effort, the guards are intended to help employers to comply with health-and-safety legislation such as the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations (PUWER), but without hindering production.

The company claims that high-quality materials and finishes, together with proven designs and robust construction, ensure a long, trouble-free service life.

In addition to guaranteeing quick deliveries, Procter is providing full technical support for the Nelsa guards.

If customers are unsure of the model of guard required or if they have any other questions, they can speak to a Procter engineer who will provide advice.

If necessary, an engineer will visit the customer’s site to survey the machine tools and recommend the right guards.

In the event of the standard guards being unsuitable, Procter can design, supply and install bespoke guarding that will comply with relevant safety standards and legislation, as well as being designed to maximise productivity.
