HSE advises against the use of emery cloth on metalworking lathes - March 2016

Every year there are serious accidents involving the use of emery cloth on metalworking lathes, resulting in injuries such as broken bones, dislocations, lacerations, amputations and occasionally death as reported by the HSE.

Emery cloth is often used to deburr, polish or size a wide range of cylindrical, tapered and threaded metal components while they are held in the rotating chuck jaws of a lathe. Accidents occur when hand-held emery cloth is entangled in the rotating parts of the machine or where the emery cloth is snagged on the rotating component dragging the operator into the danger zone.

Due to this increased risk, Sponmech are pleased to introduce one of their latest safety products; Sanding Belt Holders for Lathes.

The sanding belt replaces the need for the operator to use emery cloths that have proven to be very dangerous and illegal. 

It is never acceptable to apply emery cloth directly by hand on a rotating CNC or manual metal working machine.

Holding strips of emery cloth wrapped around a rotating component is dangerous practice and may result in serious injury or even death.

The SBH sanding belt holder is clamped into the tool holder and the operator uses the lathe crosslide to apply pressue onto the product. This very timely device is brand new onto the safety market in the UK and replaces the unsafe practice of manual sanding on conventional lathes. 

The particular shape of the device and the tension springs allow to sand bars of different diameters. In order to keep always efficient the abrasive side, the belt can be rotated by means of the specific crank. Available in three different sizes.
