Industrial Vertical Turning And Boring Machines (Metalworking) are used to create intricate shapes and patterns out of metal. They work by using a variety of tools to cut, shape, and drill holes into the metal. This process is used in a variety of industries, including manufacturing, aerospace, and construction.
Vertical turning machines are usually divided into two categories: rotary and turret. Rotary machines use a gearbox to turn a shaft while the work is being done. Turret machines use a series of rotating drums or turrets to perform the cutting and shaping. They are faster and more accurate than rotary machines, but they are less versatile.
Vertical Turning And Boring Machine injuries can occur in a variety of ways, from slipping and falling to being struck by the machine. Injuries can also occur when parts of the machine come into contact with workers. Slip and fall accidents are the most common type of injury sustained by workers in vertical turning and boring machines. Workers may become trapped between the machine and a wall or floor, or lose their balance and slip. Falling debris can also cause serious injuries. When parts of the machine come into contact with workers, they may be struck in the face, head, arms, or other areas. This can cause serious injuries, including lacerations and fractures. Objects that fly through the air, such as screws and nuts, can also cause serious injuries.
Other than the injuries listed above there, other common injuries include:
-Cuts and scrapes from the machines rotating parts
-Sprains and strains from being pulled or pushed by the machine
-Crushed fingers from the rotating parts
If you have been injured by a vertical turning or boring machine, you should contact an attorney. These machines can be very dangerous and if not used properly, can result in serious injuries. If you have suffered a injury as a result of a metalworking machine, please do not hesitate to contact an attorney to discuss your legal options.
