Flexbar Machine Corporation introduced a new line of machine safety guards, Visorguard-LED, featuring built-in LED lighting.
The LED strip lighting is integrated as part of the safety shield, providing 6000K natural white light with a 170-degree beam angle.
The system is water and coolant proof. The adjustable arm permits setting of the Visorguard shield at the correct height and angle for each setup, then locks rigid. The wing-shaped shield flips up to load a part and down for machining. A spring-loaded shaft allows the shield to stay put with no spring back.
It is powered through a choice of two available system options:
- A compact 12-volt rechargeable battery pack with on/off switch provides four hours of lighting per charge. It can be attached to side wing of the shield with included Velcro strips. 12V charger is also included.
- System can be powered through a 12V direct wire wall transformer with eight-foot cable and on/off switch.
