Bosch GTS1041A REAXX™ Jobsite Table Saw Takes User Safety to the Next Level and Also Saves the Blade

Bosch Active Response Technology™ delivers flesh-detecting technology
to help reduce potential serious user injury


MT. PROSPECT, Ill.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#Bosch–Safety comes first on any construction jobsite, especially regarding a
table saw where a momentary lack of focus could have permanent
consequences. Bosch, a power tool industry technology leader, extends
its heritage of award-winning table saw design with the introduction of
the REAXX™ Jobsite Table Saw – the first saw with the company’s
flesh-detecting Active Response Technology™.

The Bosch Active Response Technology platform helps reduce the risk of
injury to users by combining advanced Bosch sensors and electronics with
mechanical injury-prevention systems. The Active Response Technology
system on the REAXX table saw detects human flesh that comes in contact
with the blade and rapidly drops the saw blade below the tabletop. This
high-speed action helps reduce the potential of serious user injury.

Fast Reset That’s Quick and Easy

After activation, the system can be reset in less than 60 seconds. A
dual-activation cartridge enables activation for two incidents before
replacement is needed; just rotate the dual-activation cartridge and
reset the drop mechanism and the REAXX table saw is ready to go without
damaging the blade. All necessary parts, instructions and wrenches are
located onboard the saw, including storage for extra dual-activation
cartridges.

“The REAXX Jobsite Table Saw is not a reinvention of the table saw
category. Actually, the REAXX saw builds on the Bosch heritage of
precision cutting tools and adds an extra layer of user safety,” said
Jim Stevens, product manager, Robert Bosch Tool Corporation. “Bosch is a
leader in the portable table saw market, and it makes sense that the
REAXX Jobsite Table Saw incorporates great precision with the latest
user interface and injury mitigation technology.”

The Bosch REAXX on-board control system is an intuitive,
easy-to-understand LED light panel that communicates and manages saw
operation and indicates saw status.

• Green means the saw is ready for use

• Yellow means the saw is in bypass mode and will not react to blade
contact; this mode can be used for cutting conductive materials that
could potentially activate the Active Response Technology system

• Red means the saw is not ready and will not function until the user
corrects an issue

• Blue light means the saw requires service

Users can access a REAXX Android™ phone app, which uses near field
communication (NFC) to provide saw registration, saw status and
troubleshooting steps, lockout options, performance information, number
of activations remaining and service requirements. In addition, an iOS
phone app is available that provides information about saw registration
and troubleshooting steps.

Legendary Bosch Table Saw Capability

Like all Bosch table saws, the Bosch REAXX saw includes a modular blade
guard, the Smart Guard System. This primary safety device provides a
physical barrier between the user and the saw blade, as well as offering
protection against kick-back. Active Response Technology is integral to
the REAXX Jobsite Table Saw and is intended to be used with the Smart
Guard System to provide the operator with an added level of protection.

Bosch REAXX has a 15 amp, 4.0 hp max motor that generates 3,650 rpm.
It’s jobsite ready because it works with onsite generators for a truly
portable solution for mobile trade professionals. Cutting varied
materials requires maximum horsepower and excellent cutting speed. The
Bosch REAXX Jobsite Table Saw offers these attributes along with
electronic control soft-start, constant response electronics and
overload protection. Advanced electronics reduce the intensity of motor
startup and maintain cutting speed under load.

Bosch REAXX is able to cut most non-conductive materials, including
treated lumber without excessive water content.

Additional precision features include an optimized rail system that
boasts a pre-squaring SquareLock™ Rip Fence, which is engineered for
precision. Prior to locking, the fence glides along the rail and locks
into place for solid and consistent cutting performance. The table is
sturdy cast aluminum sized to rip up to 25″ on full-sheet materials (4
ft. x 8 ft.); an on-board rear outfeed support provides an extra 18″ of
support for longer workpieces. A rugged sub-base is built to withstand
daily abuse related to transport, storage or jobsite conditions.

Easy Transport on Any Jobsite

This full-featured jobsite table saw can be easily transported to and
from the job thanks to the Bosch Gravity-Rise™ Stand, which sets up in
seconds. The stand includes 8″ treaded wheels and is sized for easy
pickup truck loading or unloading.

The Bosch REAXX Jobsite Table Saw will be available June 1, 2016. To
