Huot’s safety tool covers provide an extra measure of security for proprietary CNC tooling and confidential manufacturing processes. The CNC safety covers allow the operator to select the correct tooling while visitors or personnel are touring non-secured manufacturing areas. For tooling identification, covers can be written on with a dry-erase marker. The safety covers protect valuable CNC tooling from damage that can occur when retrieving or storing tooling. The covers also keep staged tooling clean and ready for fast setup. When reaching in to retrieve tooling, workers’ arms are protected from being cut, thus minimizing time and costs from accident injuries, the company says. The safety covers are held in place with keyhole slots molded into their base and shoulder bolts installed on the ToolScoot. A simple twist releases the cover for tooling retrieving, and another twist locks the cover back in place. The tooling covers are built for use with tapers 30, 35, 40, 45, 50, HSK 63A or HSK 100A.
