Cylinder reboring machines are used to remove the damaged inner liner from a cylindrical object such as a boiler or pressure vessel. The inner liner is made of metal and is usually in a state of severe damage. The machine uses cutting and piercing methods to remove the damaged liner.
There are many different types of injuries that can occur while working with cylinder reboring machines. Here are a few of the most common:
– Hand and arm injuries: The chief cause of hand and arm injuries on reboring machines is sudden jerking motions, which can cause the operator to lose control of the machine. Injuries from this type of movement can include cuts, scrapes, lacerations, and broken bones.
– Cylinder nozzle injuries: When the nozzles on a cylinder reboring machine get too close to each other or to the workpiece, they can create intense heat and pressure that can cause burns. nozzle injuries also often result in lost fingers or hand injuries.
– Back and spinal cord injuries: When a worker is operating a cylinder reboring machine with heavy loads or improper posture, they may strain their back or spine in an effort to move the machine. This type of injury can lead to chronic pain and disability.
