In our country there are numerous cases of work-related accidents caused by wood cutting-off machines.
This is the new HANDSAFE wooden saw, which automatically stops the machine when the human skin touches the disc. This sensor/brake system is exclusive to SIMA, and acts by detecting human tissue in a matter of milliseconds and activating the almost immediate stop (40 hundredths of a second) of the turn of the disc, to prevent the operator from suffering damage to his hand.
The detection of the hand or fingers during wood cutting is performed by the ISS (instant stop sensor), which reacts to moisture, resistance and conductivity of the human skin. An engine brake stops the disc in less than a second. In addition to protecting the operator, the machine is not damaged by this sudden stop: just restart it to carry on working.
