Grinding carbide is not dangerous if done by professionals. For individuals without operational experience, training in the operation of grinding machines is necessary, as any mechanical operation has certain risks.

I. Safety risks of grinding carbide

  • Mechanical Failures: Malfunctions in the grinding machine, such as transmission system anomalies, could lead to equipment damage or operator injury.
  • Electrical Shock: The use of grinding machines may pose electrical shock risks due to malfunctioning protective devices or damaged cables.
  • Noise and Vibration: Long-term exposure to noisy and vibrating environments may cause hearing loss or other health issues for the operator.
  • Swarf and Coolant Splashes: May harm the operator’s respiratory system, skin, and eyes.
  • Insufficient Protection: The lack of adequate protective measures, such as safety glasses, earplugs, and gloves, may increase the risk of injury.
