TWO CAMERAS FOR EARLY DETECTION
HAND GUARD is based on the early detection of a dangerous situation. Two powerful cameras determine the exact position of the hand in relation to the saw blade. In the process, differently defined situations are optically recognised and classified. The cameras constantly collect data that is processed by a powerful hand detection programme. If the system detects a hazardous situation, the danger is eliminated in a quarter of a second.

QUICK LOWERING AND QUICK STOP IN A QUARTER OF A SECOND
Within a quarter of a second, the saw unit is lowered quickly and the saw blade is also stopped quickly.

SYSTEM STARTS BEFORE HAND CONTACT
HAND GUARD detects the dangerous situation at an early stage so that the user and the machine can react in time. After the system has been activated, work can continue immediately. There is no downtime, as people, machine and material are protected.

SAFETY FOR EVERY APPLICATION
Thanks to the optical recognition technology, HAND GUARD also works when working with suitable gloves. In addition, the system can be used with all conventional saw blades (Ø 250 to 550 mm) and can process all materials, such as non-ferrous metals, damp wood or plastics.
