FLEXBAR MACHINE CORP. introduced a new line of state-of-the-art machine safety guards featuring built-in LED lighting providing machine operators with “super bright” illumination of the working field. The Visorguard-LED’s continuous strip lighting is integrated as part of the safety shield, providing 6,000 K natural white light with a 170-degree beam angle. Auto-diffuse lighting produces no LED light hot spots.
Flexbar’s Visorguard-LED™ system is water- and coolant-proof and installs in minutes on CNC mills, conventional mills, drill presses, and more. The adjustable Flexbar® arm permits setting of the Visorguard shield at the correct height and angle for each set-up, then locks rigid. The special, wing-shaped shield flips up to load a part and down for machining. A special spring-loaded shaft allows the shield to stay put with no springback.
The built-in Visorguard-LED™ lighting is powered through a choice of two available system options:
- A compact, 12-V rechargeable battery pack with on/off switch provides at least four hours of lighting per charge. It can be attached easily to the shield’s side wing with included Velcro strips. A 12-V charger is included, too.
- The system can be powered through a 12-V direct-wire wall transformer with an 8-foot cable and on/off switch.
Replacement Visorguard-LED™ shields and power kits are available for current Flexbar Visorguard users who can conveniently upgrade their current system to LED lighting.
