Industrial reamers are used to make precise cuts in metal. They are essential tools in the manufacturing process, and they come in a variety of shapes and sizes. There are three main types of industrial reamers: chip reamers, straight blade reamers, and cylindrical cutters. Chip reamers have a sharp cutting edge that is designed to start small and then gradually widen the hole as it cuts through the metal. Straight blade reamers have a flat cutting surface that makes it easier to make straight cuts. Cylindrical cutters have a curved cutting edge that helps it cut through thicker pieces of metal.
The most common type of reamer injury is a hand injury. Other common types of industrial reamer injuries include finger amputation, eye injuries, and amputation of the entire arm. Reamer injuries can occur from a variety of sources, including: misalignment of the reamer in the tool, contact with the cutting edge of the reamer, and improper use of the tool.
When a reamer is not properly aligned, it can cause the tool to vibrate excessively, which can lead to blade injuries. Contact with the cutting edge of a reamer can also lead to cuts and lacerations. Improper use of a reamer can cause it to slip and jam, which can lead to other serious injuries.
If you are injured in an industrial setting, you may be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. You should speak with an experienced attorney about your rights and options.
