Industrial Grooving Machines are used in a variety of industries. They are used to create intricate designs on various surfaces, including metal, plastic, and wood. The machines use a rotating blade to create the grooves. They are typically very accurate, and can produce high-quality results quickly.
The most common type of injury caused by grooving machines is called a “grooving arm” accident. In these accidents, the operator’s hand or arm gets caught between the rotary cutting tool and the workpiece, causing serious injuries. Other types of injuries that can occur include slips and falls, cuts and burns.
Some other more common types of injuries include:
-Strains and pulls: These injuries occur when the force applied to the machine causes the arm or tool to stretch or pull on the worker’s body.
-Jams and stuck tools: When tools get stuck in the grooving machine, it can be difficult to free them without causing further injury. This can lead to strains and pulls.
-Burns: Grooving machines can produce hot metal edges that can cause burns if they come into contact with the skin.
If you have been injured by a grooving machine, contact an attorney as soon as possible. This type of injury can be very serious and require legal representation.
