Having proper wiring in a machine shop is important to prevent serious
injuries. Machine shops are full of electrical equipment and tools that
require electricity to function. Our Marietta electricians know how to
properly install and repair machine shop wiring to ensure all equipment
receives the electricity it needs to function correctly, as well as help
prevent a fire hazard and other dangerous situations.
Factors to Consider
If you own a machine shop, it is important to hire professional electricians
to handle any wiring or rewiring projects. Our team will work quickly
to ensure all your systems are fully functional. We will consider the
unique needs of your machine shop, such as the type of tools you use,
the size of the wiring to support your electrical amperage needs, and
the number of circuits and subpanels required to maintain an adequate
flow of power to the tools and equipment in your machine shop.
Safety Is Important
When installing wiring in a machine shop, it is important to follow building
codes and safety regulations set forth by the Occupational Safety and
Health Administration (OSHA). This can help keep your employees, students,
or others in your shop safe from electrical hazards and fires. Machine
shop tools, such as abrasive chop saws, belt sanders, drill presses, metal-cutting
bandsaws, table saws, and vertical milling machines, require a lot of
amperage to operate. If multiple tools will be used at the same time,
it may be necessary to install multiple circuit breakers.
It is also important to install lighting on a separate circuit. That way,
if a circuit breaker trips because of a tool, the lights will still be
able to stay on. Whether your machine shop is for your own personal enjoyment,
or it is a work station for students or employees, it is important to
hire a professional electrician to install correct wiring to meet your
specific electrical needs.
