Founded by kanDO Innovation in 2015 in order to address the need for improved safety and detection systems in the meat processing sector, Guardian Bandsaw has now developed a new bandsaw.

Replacing traditional bandsaws, this product provides customers with a range of high-tech features including: real-time feedback; higher speed of vision and braking systems; no damage to the blade during braking; video capturing of trip events and E-stops for review; and email alerts when trips occur.

It also focuses on safety by providing an automatic safety check prior to operation and a unique 3D vision system which includes a protection zone around the blade.

After working with SMC in the past, Guardian Bandsaw Director Keith Blenkinsopp collaborated with SMC to further advance their product and ensure the efficient control of their technology.

“In listening to Keith’s requirements, the brief was to offer a compact tidy and efficient system to control the pneumatic requirements of the machine, thus we recommended SMC’s EX260 Ethernet module mounted on our SY3000 series Valve Manifold,” said SMC Branch Manager for New Zealand Peter Wilson.

SMC’s SY series of all-purpose valve manifold offers flexibility, improved space savings of 29%, increased flow rates of up to 1500 L and greater cost savings.

Designed to match with the company’s EX fieldbus system, it offers an array of compatible protocols, reduced wiring time, an IP67 rating and a self-diagnosis function. The units are set with rubber and metal seals that are designed to last for decades and therefore further safety requirements.

“It speaks volumes when you are confident enough to offer a perfectly matched solution on trial and know that it will 100% deliver. Rather than offering a sales pitch, SMC allows our products to speak for themselves,” said Wilson.
