All cutting and grinding wheels are breakable and it is imperative that users take the appropriate precautions. Abrasive wheels that are damaged, improperly mounted or improperly used are dangerous and can cause serious injuries to any person in the vicinity.
Before starting the cutting or grinding operation, the wheel guard must be on correct position and fixed securely on the machine. the wheel guard must be capable of catching broken wheel fragments effectively and capable of withstanding the impact caused by wheel breakage. Only mount the wheel on machines designed for the operation. Never use force when mounting. Always use the mounting flanges supplied with machine and ensure they are clean, never modify them in any way.
