Safety Precautions when using Cutting Tools

MTC is committed to manufacturing products that can be used safely as directed under recommended machining parameters. Cutting tools can break or shatter when in use due to the extreme forces of the machining environment. Cutting tools will generate chips while engaged in the work piece and can produce dust, swarf, gases and potentially sparks or fire. Caution and safety must be taken into account at all times to include the use of protective eye wear, machine safety guard barriers, proper ventilation, quick access to fire suppression equipment and other safeguards. In no way shall MTC be held accountable or liable for any costs, machine down time, injuries, or deaths resulting from cutting tool breakage or emissions.
