  • Entry
  • Associated product(s)
Two-hand controls are widely used in the industrial field. Fields of application include pressing, spot welding, punching and print finishing or wood working. A characteristic feature of the two-hand control is the fact that both hands are fixed. The desired action is started only by the simultaneous pressing of both push buttons of the two-hand control panel.
