Abrasives are often the fastest and most efficient way to get jobs done and meet production goals. As with all industrial processes, there is some risk associated with their use, both for the operators of the equipment and those around them.
Potential hazards include: mechanical injuries from contact with moving parts, burns from sparks and hot parts. In the long term, damage from dust, noise and vibration may also occur. The use of PPE is not all we could do to protect workers.
Choosing the right abrasive products is also important. 3M™ offers the Cubitron™II 982CX Pro Fiber Disc for fast sanding with less pressure. Getting the job done in less time reduces operator exposure to vibration.
If you would like to know how 3M™ Abrasives could help reduce the risks associated with abrasives, please contact our sales representatives or write to B2B@robod.pl.
