Having an experienced engineer walk new users through the use of a Bar bending machine helps increase safety by having someone who knows what is or isn’t normal for that equipment supervising.
Check the placement of the object: Proper placement of the object to be bent is very important. So select the correct bending angle beforehand. Make sure the object (to be bent) is placed parallel to the bender table before you commence your work.
Warming up: When the weather is cold, warm up the Bar bending machine by setting it in motion and allow it to operate for a few minutes before using it.
Wear protective safety equipment: Needless to say that the operator must wear the following protective safety equipment to protect himself from any scrap metal or sharp equipment.
Safety Goggles – To protect your eyes from flying particles or rods.
Thick Gloves – To make it easy for you to handle pieces of equipment while protecting your fingers and palms at the same time.
Thick Footwear – For efficient operation of the foot pedal.
Thick, protective clothing and headwear; if instructed.
Watch your hands: While placing the object on the Bar bending machine, the operator must be very alert and careful about moving his hands on the Bar bending machine. Otherwise, lack of attention can cause severe accidents.
Be careful with foot pedal operation: For safety purposes, the same person who operates the bar bender must operate the foot pedal also.
Handle wet metal sheets with utmost care: The wet surfaces contain moisture, which when mixed with dirt and oil can make the surface of the sheet slippery; thereby making it slippery and hard to grip.
