Solutions for the educational institution. Working safely with
HAND GUARD

The award-winning Altendorf HAND GUARD safety assistance system can be the right solution for many educational institutions:

Apprentices, young and inexperienced students or employees to be trained can take their first safe steps on a professional sliding table saw with the HAND GUARD safety assistance system. Integrative facilities where people with a disability work can also enable safer working through HAND GUARD.

YOUR SETUP. OUR SOLUTION.

Built-in guardian angels: HAND GUARD keeps a close eye on professionals – and those who want to become professionals. After all, safety comes first.

Pupils

A sliding table saw from ALTENDORF is a fine thing. Those who approach working with it need not be afraid. An LED band in the colours of a traffic light creates confidence and provides safety.

Apprentices

Those who have internalised the basics of safe handling of the sliding table saw learn the finer points in the next step. The camera-based safety assistance system helps with practical training.

Employees to be trained

ALTENDORF sliding table saws with the HAND GUARD safety assistance system are easy to operate. Even semi-skilled users quickly become professionals when handling them.

Advantages for teachers: Responsibility – Independence from materials – Future-proofing

With HAND GUARD, teachers can concentrate more on the essentials, on imparting knowledge. It does not matter whether the sliding table saw is to be used to process wet or dry solid wood, or plastics or workpieces made of aluminium.

  • The safety assistance system triggers automatically in a dangerous situation
  • After each triggering, images are stored in quick succession
  • Due to the camera-based technology, a large safety area is monitored to make it easier for people with handicaps to learn. Hands approaching the saw blade can be detected and recorded at an extremely early stage
  • Training on a state-of-the-art machine for sliding table saws and safety assistance systems

Advantages for students: Training – Confidence – Usability

HAND GUARD is an excellent safety assistance system and an asset for teaching and training. It supports pupils, vocational students, trainees and apprentices in correct hand posture and gives the user an additional level of safety.

  • An LED band on the protective bonnet shows in the colours of a traffic light in an easily understandable way whether the hand is “in the green zone” or whether danger is imminent
  • Before it can become dangerous, the safety mechanism is triggered
  • If danger is imminent, the saw blade disappears and stops in the saw table in a fraction of a second – without a bang or a fright
  • Operation is intuitive, the screen shows easy-to-understand instructions in plain text
  • No learning of error codes through dummy signals

HAND GUARD is the world’s first and only safety assistance system for sliding table saws to receive the GS seal for tested safety.

HAND GUARD has received certification from the German Employers’ Liability Insurance Association for Wood and Metal (BGHM) and, with the GS seal (Tested Safety), redefines the safety standard for sliding table saws on the world market. This means that the up to 120 reportable accidents per month in Germany in connection with sliding table saws can be almost completely prevented.

HAND GUARD – The world innovation

More safety, highest productivity and intelligent technology.
