Procter Nelsa offer 2 distinctive options of Milling Machine Guards JSA (Just Swing Aside) and SSA (Slide and Swing Aside) which between the two types will cover virtually any milling machine type with the added option of bespoke designs available

Milling Machine Guards - JSA Just Swing Aside 

Key features and benefits includes:

  • Operator friendly proximity guard
  • Unrestricted front access
  • Ease of adjustment

Suitable for Tool room machines, R & D workshops, and small batch production Machines

The JSA-1E Interlocked Vertical Milling Machine Guard is suitable for Bridgeport Series 1 vertical milling machines or similar.

Its operator friendly proximity guard provides protection without the usual constraints of a full table guard. When not required it simply swings aside allowing full operator access to the machine table for setting and measurement etc.

Not only is it suitable for tool room machines, but also R & D workshops, prototype work and small batch production machines. It has a three sided framed polycarbonate screen with support arm and mounting bracket with an optional right hand side cut-out for access to quill feed arms (common to Bridgeport machines). Adjustment is easily attainable in both Z and Y axis.  The guard can be fitted to either the left or right hand side of the machine, the standard being on the left.

Key features and benefits includes:

  • All round visibility 
  • Unrestricted front access
  • Ease of installation
  • Two sliding quill access panels as standard

Suitable for Horizontal, Vertical, Universal & Turret milling machines

The patented Slide & Swing Aside Milling Machine Guard has been designed to meet the stringent guidelines laid down by both legal requirements and industrial necessity.  It is manufactured using impact resistant clear polycarbonate and gives good visibility, immediate access and maximum operator protection.  Its unique design ensures that the guard does not impair the performance or the versatility of the machine.

This is the first guard of its kind which enables either small workpieces or large castings fitting and overhanging the milling machine table to be completely protected, but at the same time giving immediate and complete access to the piece part or casting being machined.  Each of the front panels can slide to the right or left and swing aside on their own axis out of the way, finishing in a position parallel to the end panels. 

The advantage of the Slide and Swing Aside movement is that you can obtain immediate access to the whole length of the table for loading and unloading large workpieces, and although the panels slide aside they will not take up any more room than the actual length of the table. 

Where large castings are being machined or the need to turn vice at 90 degree which overhang the front of the table, you can slide the guard forward and lock into the position required. 

Now the SSA guard is supplied with two sliding quill access panels as standard it allows the operator to gain access to the quill or controls at the head of the machine without opening the main sliding front doors allowing the guard to be interlocked at all times.

The Guard

The guard is supplied in two separate assemblies which are mounted at each end of the table.  A flat bar drilled at one end with a rectangular locating block welded the other end is positioned at each end of the table in one of the "T" slots and the parallel sole bars are clamped to the mounting plate by two socket cap screws.  The two parallel sole bars support a kingpost to which a pivoting bracket is fitted supporting a ball bearing sliding track to which the polycarbonate transparent front panels are fixed.  The two assemblies can easily be moved forward or backward across the table by slackening the two socket cap screws each end and moving to the required position.  Ideal for those situations where the vice needs to be turned at right angles and overhangs the front of the table.
