Emergency stop button can also be called "emergency stop button", the industry is short for short stop button. As the name implies, the urgent stop button is a measure that people can achieve protection by pressing this button quickly when an emergency occurs.


In various factories, visible red buttons can be seen in some large and medium-sized machine tools or electrical appliances. The standard red label should be marked with the same meaning of "emergency stop". This button can be called a rush button. This button needs to be pressed down directly.  It is possible to quickly let the whole equipment stop or release some of the transmission parts. If you want to start the device again, you must release this button, that is, just spin it around 45 degrees clockwise, and the pressed part will pop up. It is "release".


In industrial safety, all transmission parts must be protected directly or indirectly under abnormal conditions. The emergency stop button is one of them. Therefore, it is necessary to add a quick stop button to design some machines with transmission parts. And it should be set on the machine's surface which is easily pressed by the personnel, and there can be no shelter.
