Safety Tips for your CNC Router

CNC routers are designed with safety in mind. However, there are certain safety rules you should always follow to prevent accident or injury.

CNC Router Machine Safety

  • Do not operate a CNC router in a damp or moist environment.
  • Never leave the room while your machine is routing.
  • Do not put any part of your body closer than 6 inches to the cutting tool when it is moving.
  • Always make sure you have inserted the correct bit for the job you are doing.
  • Check your horsepower is suitable for the material you are cutting.
  • Make sure that all workpieces are securely clamped down.
  • Do not force material into the router.
  • Don’t try to increase the depth of the cut by inserting less of the shank into the collet.
  • If the bit is acting up or breaks, shut down the machine straight away.
  • Do not use non-routing tools, even though their shanks may fit in the collet.
  • Clean the machine and the floor around it after every use.
  • Empty the vacuum bag frequently.
  • When the machine is working, always use eye and hearing protection.
  • Maintain your CNC router diligently. Replace worn part as and when needed.
