The SawStop system charges the saw blade with a small electrical charge. When the electronics detect a small change in the charge, the brake deploys, stopping the rotation of the blade before serious damage to a user’s hand can occur. The image on the right shows the deformation of the brake mechanism caused by the impact with the spinning saw blade.
