Revolutionizing Safety in the Workplace: The BladeStop Bandsaw

The BladeStop bandsaw, developed by Scott Technology, is a game-changer in the world of bandsaw safety. Designed with operator safety in mind, bandsaws are known to be one of the most dangerous pieces of cutting equipment used in protein and industrial applications, with operator injuries and amputations being a common occurrence. The BladeStop bandsaw aims to reduce this risk by mechanically stopping the blade within a fraction of a second when it senses that the operator has come in contact with it.

BladeStop boasts the fastest stopping time on the market, with over 1500 units in use across 30 countries. Its dual sensing feature, with options for body sensing and Glovecheck, provides maximum protection for the operator. The bandsaw also offers a range of models to suit different processing requirements and species of all sizes. Additionally, the new coated jaws on the bandsaw provide longer service life by extending the number of triggers by 50%.
