After the success of BladeStop since its launch in January 2014, the company has added another level of safety in its GloveCheck equipment which can identify a glove in front of a saw.
BladeStop reported the risk of operator injury is further reduced by sensing the glove in front of the saw, or if the fingers are obscured under the meat, the BladeStop body sensing system will detect contact with the blade, and in both cases stops the blade in under 15 milliseconds.
MAR Innovation Manager – Stuart Shaw says “when we demonstrate Glovecheck people are amazed at the speed of the system and that the operator glove is not damaged by the saw. Glovecheck takes our BladeStop technology to a whole new level. We really have a great product to support meat processors and other bandsaw users in reducing serious injury risk for their bandsaw operations”.
Glovecheck is available as a factory fitted option on new BladeStop saws, and also as a retrofit option for existing BladeStop installations.
