Preventive Contact System – PCS
Every woodworker (and woodworking company) has ten good reasons not to compromise when it comes to working safety – PCS prevents accidents and guarantees dexterity and a quality handshake forever!
Today, all state-of-the-art saws and panel saws need to have standard safety equipment such as a splitter and an overhead saw guard in accordance with the applicable DGUV accident prevention regulations. For some years, there has also been a technical solution that largely prevents cuts due to instant blockage of the saw blade, but it destroys the saw blade as well as the saw unit. The consequential costs for the repair are the price that you have to pay for saving one or more fingers. Until now, because there is a better way.
Accidents at the manufacturing units are a thing of the past. The world of innovations from Felder group introduces further safety measures to restrict accidents and limb loss. The patent-pending Safety Innovation PCS is available as an option with the Format4 kappa 550 sliding table panel saw and supplements the existing standard protective equipment.
A revolution in safety systems for sliding table saws
Funded by the Austrian Research Promotion Agency (FFG), the Felder Group developed PCS in cooperation with the Vienna University of Technology. Specifically, the worldwide patented safety system detects human tissue in the danger zone and makes the saw blade disappear in a few milliseconds as if by magic. It is suddenly sunk under the table when danger threatens.
