BladeStop™ Bandsaw

Interfood Butchery Ltd is proud to have been chosen as the sole distributor in the UK and Ireland for the BladeStop™ range of bandsaws. Already proven in Australasia, this innovative technology is new to these two countries.

With thousands of conventional commercial bandsaws in daily operation in the meat processing industry around the world, evidence suggests their use can potentially result in serious incidents for the operators using them. Many of these result in deep and serious wounds to the machine operators that require hospital treatment. Some even result in amputation.

The innovative BladeStop™ system has been designed to minimise these incidents and their severity, by bringing the cutting blade to a complete standstill in only a matter of milliseconds. It does so by sensing the operator coming into contact with the blade. The speed with which it stops the bandsaw can be the difference between a minor cut and a serious injury. Available with two different sensing modes, the system is able to bring the cutting blade to a complete stop in no more than 0.015 secs. BladeStop™ greatly reduces the potential for serious injury, safeguards workers and can significantly improve operator morale, performance and productivity. For the meat processor, BladeStop™ dramatically reduces the potential for production stoppages caused by accidents, litigation and compensation payouts and can lower insurance premiums.

BladeStop™ is backed by Interfood’s after-sales service and support that is second to none. Prompt service, comprehensive maintenance contracts, further training and bespoke optimisation programmes ensure that customers get the most from their Interfood equipment.
