Industrial Woodworking Machines are used to make furniture, cabinets, and other wooden products. They come in a variety of shapes and sizes, and can be rented or purchased. The most common types of industrial woodworking machines are the CNC (Computer Numeric Control) machines. They use rotary tables to cut the wood, and are very accurate. Other types of industrial woodworking machines include the saws, routers, and planers.
Woodworking machines, whether powered by hand or motor, can be dangerous if not used properly. Whether a machine falls, kicks back, or springs out of control, injuries can and do occur.
When using a power tool, always use proper safety equipment, including a dust mask and eye protection. If you are ever in doubt about the safety of a project, please consult with an experienced woodworker.
Here are five woodworking machines that have led to serious injuries:
Jigsaws are one of the most popular woodworking machines because they are easy to use. However, they can be dangerous if not used correctly. A jigsaw can easily cut through flesh if not held correctly or if the blade gets caught on something. Injuries resulting from a jigsaw include lacerations and deep cuts.
Routers are another common woodworking machine that can be dangerous if not used correctly. Routers can easily gouge your wood surface and cause serious damage to your project. Injuries that can result from using a router include cuts, bruises, and even broken bones.
3) Band saw
Band saw injuries are common in the woodworking industry. Injuries can range from cuts and bruises to more serious injuries, such as lacerations and amputations. The key to preventing these injuries is to use a band saw correctly. Always wear safety gear, including gloves and a mask, and keep your hands clear of the blade. When cutting large pieces of wood, use two people to handle the band saw.
Planers are one of the most popular woodworking machines. They are used to create a variety of shapes, including rounds, squares, triangles, and other irregular shapes. Depending on the type of wood used, planers can produce a wide range of cuts. However, planer injuries can occur in a variety of ways. Some common ones include hand cuts, lacerations, and amputations from being caught in between the blades or moving parts.
If you have been injured by a woodworking machine, it is important to contact an attorney. There are many legal options available to you, and an attorney can help you decide which one is best for your situation. Depending on the type of injury you have sustained, an attorney may be able to help you receive compensation for your injuries.
