Cutting Edge has partnered with new zealand based manufacturers, kando innovation, to launch the state-of-the-art Guardian Bandsaw to customers in the UK & Ireland. Designed from the ground up as a safety bandsaw system, the Guardian uses a combination of high definition cameras, lasers and a unique braking mechanism to stop the blade within a fraction of a second when a risk of injury is detected.
The highly advanced braking system sets the Guardian apart from competitors not only in the speed of the stoppage, but also by simultaneously de-tensioning the blade to prevent damage to the mechanism or the blade itself.
The safety bandsaw system also provides detailed reporting, powerful data analytics and video recordings including an instant alert system when a trigger event occurs. This information can be combined in customised and secure dashboards, allowing technical managers and supervisors to train operators, reduce risks and improve performance.
Sam Tinsley, Managing Director at Cutting Edge, said this about the launch: “We are incredibly proud to be working in partnership with world-leading innovators like Kando to offer our customers the latest solutions & technology available from across the globe. At Cutting Edge we are driven by the needs of our customers and the Guardian Bandsaw positively answers two major demands from the industry: improving safety in what has historically been a high-risk area, and providing an unrivalled level of management information to improve efficiency.”
