BladeStop Bandsaw

Scott Automation BladeStop
Scott’s award-winning BladeStop Bandsaw is designed to reduce the risk of serious injury when operating the machine. The device mechanically stops the blade when the unit senses that the operator has come in to contact with the machine. The revolutionary technology can sense the presence of a body and will immediately halt production to ensure the operator is safe. Along with this body-sensing technology, the BladeStop is also supplied with the GloveCheck sensing system which detects the operators’ gloves moving at high-speeds in a certain zone directly upstream from the blade. This system is ideal for high-speed operation and for production that requires a hand-flicking motion.

“Safety is becoming an ever-increasing focus in meat processing and nowhere more so than in the operation of bandsaws which pose one of the highest risks in terms of potential injury to those who are using them. The BladeStop Bandsaw is uniquely designed to reduce the risk of serious injury by stopping the blade in milliseconds when the unit senses that the operator has come into contact with the machine. Contact us for more information.”


Scott Automation BladeStop Bandsaw

The BladeStop bandsaw has the fastest stopping time on the market, ensuring the absolute safety of the operator. Unlike other systems, the BladeStop provides a quick and simple, user-friendly process. With a fast restart functionality there is no need to change the blade between stops. This device places the operators safety as its top priority, and there are many other benefits that come with having the BladeStop device. It boosts workers-morale as it removes the fear and risk of injury, which in turn also reduces production time lost from injuries that may occur without the BladeStop. It also greatly reduces worker’s compensation cost and reduces insurance premiums, providing an increase in budget.
