BladeStop™ is available worldwide and is uniquely designed to reduce risks of serious injury by mechanically stopping the bandsaw blade when the unit senses that a person has come in contact with the blade. BladeStop is available in two sensing methods. Upon sensing contact with the operator, the blade stops operating within 9 milliseconds. This can be a huge difference between having just a small skin cut or an amputated finger. GloveCheck, the second sensing system detects operator gloves moving at high speed in a zone directly upstream from the saw blade and trigger the BladeStop™ mechanism to stop the saw blade within 9 milliseconds.
