New for 2021, the Altendorf Hand Guard features the world’s first and only optical system that protects people, machines and materials. With its unique early detection system featuring two cameras, when Altendorf Hand Guard detects the user approaching the saw blade it retracts it away in the blink of an eye. The machine is not damaged and is ready for use again immediately. The detection system works for all materials, and even knows when the operator is wearing gloves.
No matter what industry you are in – with the Altendorf Hand Guard you not only get the greatest safety, but also flexibility and the highest precision. If a capacitive system only offers you a limited range of materials, the Altendorf Hand Guard optical system gives you almost all options for material processing. It works for all materials, e.g. non-ferrous metals, damp wood or plastics.
R&J Machinery is proud to present the new Altendorf Hand Guard, an outstanding leap-forward in safety and performance. And with safety comes performance – the Altendorf Hand Guard is available in two base specifications with class-leading features as below. A full-range of additional options can be configured, please enquire for details.
