Festool, renowned global leaders in power saws and power tools now have the world’s safest technically advanced table saw with their new TKS 80 EBS.
Every year approximately 4,000 people are injured on circular saws, corresponding to 16 injuries per working day. Around 26% of serious accidents even result in an accident pension (German Social Accident Insurance (DGUV) statistics. With the new TKS 80 table saw, the risk of most serious cutting injuries during sawing is reduced drastically. While you concentrate on your work, Festool protects your most valuable tools – your fingers.
This is the first Festool saw with innovative SawStop technology for increased safety while sawing. If the saw blade comes into contact with the user’s skin, it stops immediately and disappears into the work surface – the risk of serious cutting injuries is no longer an issue with this new saw. The responsive sensor stops the blade within 5 milliseconds. An
Intelligent cartridge releases a pretensioned spring and pushes an aluminium block into the saw blade. After being triggered, the cartridge is replaced in just a few steps.
The saw also offers splinter-free cuts, fewer splinters on the upper surface of the material in mitre rip cuts by swivelling the saw blade to the left. It is also very flexible to use with a max cutting height up to 80 mm, an extendable work surface in length and width, with improved flexibility thanks to the angle stop.
