The Guardian Bandsaw’s 3D vision system offers a new level of safety for meat processors, and is the result of a partnership between NZ company kanDO Innovation and SMC.

The Guardian Bandsaw safety system was developed in Auckland, New Zealand with the aim of offering meat processors peace of mind and real-time feedback.

Designed by kanDO Innovation as an improvement on old-fashioned bandsaws, the equipment uses the expertise of engineers with years of experience in the meat industry, according to the company.
