Scott’s award winning BladeStop™ bandsaw is uniquely designed to reduce the risk of serious injury by mechanically stopping the blade when the unit senses that the operator has come in contact.
With the fastest stopping time on the market!
Along with touch sensing capability, BladeStop is also supplied with the GloveCheck™ sensing system. GloveCheck detects the operator’s gloves moving at high speeds in a zone directly upstream from the blade and is ideal for high speed and hand-flick cutting tasks.
With revolutionary body sensing technology, BladeStop reduces the high risk of bandsaw operation related injuries, and unlike other systems on the market, employs a quick, simple and operator-friendly process.
