PITTSBURGH, Feb. 13, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — While safety in the workplace is a top priority for the manufacturing industry, accidents involving equipment and machine operators still occur. Fortunately, an inventor from rock Hill, S.C., has reduced that risk for plastics foam manufacturing workers.

He developed POLYSTYRENE FOAM SHEET CUTTER to enhance workplace safety specifically for extrusion machine operators in the manufacture of foam plastic sheets. As such, it eliminates the need to perform these cutting operations by hand. Thus, it not only saves time and effort but prevents injuries and worker absenteeism as well. Its compact size and lightweight construction also make it easy to operate. Other reasons for its appeal are convenience, effectiveness and an affordable price. In addition, its simple design minimizes production costs.

The inventor’s work experience inspired the idea. “This was invented to enhance safety for extrusion machine operators,” he said, “to keep them from being injured by the winding mechanism.”

The original design was submitted to the Charlotte sales office of InventHelp. It is currently available for licensing or sale to manufacturers or marketers.
