With an industry-leading stopping time of milliseconds, BladeStop is designed to protect band saw operators and is available in two sensing methods. Since the release in 2015 BladeStop has over 400 installs globally and is dramatically reduced the number of serious incidents to the band saw operators.
BladeStop’s body sensing system senses an operator making contact with the blade and stops operating within milliseconds, leaving the operator with a small skin cut rather than a horrific injury or amputation.
GloveCheck, the camera sensing system detects operator gloves moving at high speed in a zone directly upstream from the saw blade, triggering the BladeStop mechanism to stop the saw blade before operator contact with the blade.
