brand eins: so that all fingers stay on
- Press review
The renowned German business magazine “brand eins” visited us in Minden and talked to our colleague Karl-Friedrich Schröder, Head of Research and Development, about our HAND GUARD sliding table saw with safety assistance system.
“According to statistics from the German Statutory Accident Insurance, six accidents occur on table and sliding table saws in this country every day – almost always involving the hands. The numbers could drop and many people could keep their fingers if HAND GUARD, a protection system developed by Karl-Friedrich Schröder with colleagues from the Westphalian Altendorf Group, becomes established.”
