Industrial subpresses are used to produce metal parts by stamping, forming, and welding. There are two types of industrial subpresses: die-casting and stamping. Die-casting is a process where metal is poured into a die, which casts the part. Stamping is a process where metal is heated and then pressurized. This creates a series of impressions that form the part.
Industrial subpresses are used in metalworking to reduce the size of parts by forcing them through a die using a pressure lower than that of the manufacturing process. While this technology is highly efficient, it can also be dangerous if not used properly. There are three main types of injuries associated with industrial subpresses: hand, arm, and shoulder. Hand injuries occur when workers reach into the die to change parts or remove stuck material. Arm injuries occur when the press force pulls the worker’s arm out from its socket. Shoulder injuries happen when the worker’s arm is pulled overhead, causing rotator cuff tears or impingement syndrome in the shoulder. To prevent these types of injuries, manufacturers need to follow safety guidelines specific to their individual equipment. For example, press designers should consider the weight and size of parts being formed, as well as how often parts will be moved. Additionally, workers should wear protective gear such as gloves and sleeves, and should never reach into the die without first verifying that it is safe to do so.
If you have been injured by a metalworking machine, you should contact an attorney. Metalworking machines are dangerous and can cause serious injuries. An attorney can help you file a claim against the machine’s manufacturer if the injury was caused by the machine, or the manufacturer may be liable for damages if they knew or should have known about the dangers of the machines and didn’t take appropriate steps to protect their customers.
