SawStop ® Safety System:
The patented SawStop safety system prevents serious injury by stopping the blade within 5 milliseconds of detecting contact with skin. A small electrical signal is applied to the blade which the safety system continually monitors. When skin contacts the blade the signal changes because the human body is conductive. The signal activates the safety system. An aluminium brake springs into the spinning blade stopping it cold: the blade’s angular momentum drives it beneath the table: power to motor is cut off.
Quick release, zero-clearance insert:
The ICS comes standard with a quick release zero-clearance insert. No tools are needed to remove the insert or clamp it back in place. A positive latching mechanism lets you know that the insert is securely in place.
Every time the saw is turned on, the saws runs through a diagnostic check to make sure the safety is fully operational and ready to detect contact with skin.
A unique aerodynamic design draws dust off the blade. Air foils inside the shroud transforms the turbulent air into a directed stream. The patent-pending system collects over 95% of the dust created during a cut, setting a new standard in the industry.
Blade guard/riving knife mounted:
The blade guard and riving knife are held in place with an easy- to- use clamp that requires no tools which means operators can quickly switch between the two. The clamp has several micro adjustments to ensure alignment between the blade and splitter or riving knife.
T-Glide Industrial Fence System:
The ICS comes standard with a T-style fence system that includes 4mm gauge steel rails for accuracy and rigidity, widely spaced glide plates for smooth travel, micro adjustments to fine-tune alignment, and magnified indicator lenses for easy measurement.
True vertical elevation system:
The rack and pinion elevation system operates on a vertical slide rather than arc (like most saws). The vertical elevation system ensures exact blade alignment at all elevation levels and blade angles.. A further advantage to the vertical elevation system is the consistent relationship of handle turns to elevation changes. This is something that customers might not notice at first, but it’s something that they’ll really appreciate as they use the saw over time.
