Industrial Metal Cutting Planers are used in a variety of industries to cut metal. They come in a variety of shapes and sizes, and can be used for a variety of tasks. Common uses for industrial metal cutting planers include cutting steel, aluminum, and other metals. They can also be used to create intricate cuts in wood.
Metal cutting planers can be divided into two categories based on the type of blade used: contact and non-contact. Contact blades create an abrasive spark that cuts the metal while non-contact blades use a thrust mechanism to push the metal against an abrasive wheel, which then cuts it. Metal cutting planers can also be divided into three categories based on how the blade is supported: free-swing, fixed-angle and tilting bed. Free-swing blades are unsupported and move back and forth along the cutting edge, fixed-angle blades have a stationary blade that angles down as it moves towards the workpiece, and tilting bed blades move side to side on a bed that can also tilt. Finally, metal cutting planers can be divided into four categories based on how the user is supported: seated, standing or leaning on an arm or stand. Seated users are supported by their legs while leaning users are either seated or supported by an arm that swings from side to side like a pendulum.
Planer blade injuries are one of the most common types of machine-related injuries. They can occur due to a variety of causes, including operator error, equipment malfunction, and material inconsistency. Injuries can range from fairly minor cuts and gashes to more serious injuries, such as amputations.
