Safety Advices

All the INTEGI tools that are shown on this webpage must be used in a proper manner in order to get a correct result on the workpieces as well as to avoid any possible personal injuriy. Knurls, as parts that plunge into workpieces, are manufactured in special-alloy HSS and heat-treated to confer them the necessary hardness and resilience to carry out the duties they have been designed for. Notwithstanding the aforementioned, chips can be tossed away at high speeds and, on occasions, very hot and may cause wounds if they impact against eyes or the skin.


Safety advices:
