SCOTT BladeStop bandsaw technology

Monday, 16 April, 2018 | Supplied by: Scott Automation & Robotics Pty Limited

Bandsaws are an essential tool in the meat processing industry, but they also pose a high risk to the health and safety of operators. SCOTT, in collaboration with Meat & Livestock Australia, developed BladeStop.

The bandsaw technology is designed to reduce the risk of injuries for employees in the meat processing sector, while decreasing lost production time and compensation claims from injuries. The technology has also improved overall sustainability of the meat processing industry.

Key features include: stops the blade in 0.009 s; fast reset/restart capability; no bending of the blade after an emergency stop; and multi-industry compatible — not limited to meat processing.

It is available worldwide and is designed to stop the meat saw blade when the unit senses that a person, glove or both have come in contact with the blade, reducing the number of injuries.
