|All Cutting Tools||•Cutting tools have sharp cutting edges. Handling them with bare hands may cause injuries.||*Take precautions such as wearing gloves especially when handling tools and during installation.|
|•Improper use of tools and application of inappropriate cutting conditions may cause the tool to break and be expelled from the machine providing risk of injury.||*Ensure safety guards and goggles are used.
*Refer to handling explanatory notes and catalogues.
Use tools under recommended cutting conditions.
|•Impact load and rapid increase of cutting resistance due to excessive wear may cause the tool to break and be expelled from the machine providing risk of injury.||*Ensure safety guards and goggles are used.
*Exchange tools before excessive wear occurs.
|•Cutting tools and workpieces become extremely hot during cutting. Touching them with bare hands may cause burns.|
|•Expelled hot chips produced in cutting produces risk of injuries and burns.|
|•In cutting, sparks, hot chips and heat generation caused by tool breakage provides a risk of igniting a fire.|
|•Using machines, chucks, and tools with poor balance at high revolutions may cause tools to break providing risk of injuries.|
|•Handling machined parts with burrs using bare hands may cause injuries.|
|Indexable Inserts Type Tools||•If inserts and spare parts are not held securely, they may become loose and be expelled producing risk of injuries.|
|•Clamping inserts and spare parts too tightly by using tools such as extension pipes may cause them to break and be expelled.|
|•When applying high cutting speed, spare parts and inserts may be expelled due to centrifugal force.
Pay special attention on each safety guidline.
|Cutters and Other Rotating Tools||•Milling cutters have sharp edges. Handling them with bare hands may cause injuries.|
|•Poor balance or off center revolving of tools may cause vibration and chattering which could cause the tool to break and be expelled.|
|Drilling Tools||•Through cutting in cases when the workpiece revolves may produce a disk shaped peice with sharp edges when the cutting tool breaks through.|
|•Drills with an extremely small diameter have a very sharp point which may puncture the skin if not handled carefully. If the drill breaks during cutting, the broken pieces may be expelled.|
|Brazed Tools||•Weakening of the braze and breakage of inserts may cause injury.|
|Others||•Machine and tools may be damaged if they are used for purposes other than the prescribed application.|
