In the paper industry, corrugating machines are used to create various types of paper products, such as boxes, bags, and sacks. One of the most important steps is producing the correct paper size. This process begins by feeding a continuous stream of paper through a tubular corrugating machine that smooths and crimps the sheet into specific shapes. As you can imagine, this type of machinery can be quite dangerous if not handled correctly.
The most common type of injury caused by a corrugating machine is a laceration. A laceration is a tear in the skin that may extend beyond the surface of the skin. Lacerations may be caused by the blade on the corrugating machine or by contact with the spinning drum or belt.
Other injuries that can be caused by a corrugating machine include cuts, bruises, and abrasions. If you are injured by a corrugating machine, you should seek medical attention immediately.
Here are some of the more serious injuries caused by these machines:
– Corrosion of the eyes: When metal pieces on a corrugating machine contact the eyes, it can cause serious damage.
– Broken bones: When a person is hit by a piece of machinery, it is not uncommon for them to fracture their bones.
– Head injuries: When a corrugating machine hits someone in the head, it can cause serious brain damage or death.
If you have been injured by a corrugating machine for paper, you should contact an attorney. Corrugating machines are heavy and can travel a long distance when cutting sheets of paper. If you are injured, the machine may be responsible for your injury. An attorney can help you understand your legal options and seek compensation for your injuries.
