WEST BROMWICH, U.K. - eTradeWire -- The West Bromwich-based company manufacturers a range of bespoke guards and covers for a range of fixed and portable machinery such as CNCs, lathes, hydraulic presses, surface and pedestal grinders.

Clients include global brands such as Timberwolf.

A spokesperson said this week "Producing machine guards is a natural fit with our expertise and machinery, but it was only when we were approached by a client to make a machine guard that we realised this potential. Since then we have been approached by clients across a wide range of sectors to manufacture guards and covers for a whole range of machines.

"Quality is more important here than with almost anything else we make - people's wellbeing and even lives are at stake. So it is very heartening that clients trust our quality."

Machine guarding is mostly used where a hazard cannot be eliminated or substituted with a safer alternative. The most common machine guard type is a fixed guard which forms a barrier between the machine and the operator and prevents contact with the machine.
