  • Press releases

Under the motto “You never work alone”, the Altendorf Group with its Altendorf sliding table saws and Hebrock edgebanders brands will be presenting many exciting innovations at this year’s IWF in Atlanta. The main focus here will be on products and innovations in the areas of safety, efficiency, digitalization and service for the woodworking trade of tomorrow.

Minden, August 5, 2022 Traditional craftsmanship continues to represent an important pillar of our society as well as a major economic factor. Accordingly, the Altendorf Group’s Research and Development team has been working on bringing new products to market as well as adding new features to already established series. The Altendorf Group knows what counts and thus acts, among other things, as a digital pulse generator for the trade.

More safety:


At the IWF, the Altendorf Group is presenting HAND GUARD, the world’s first AI- and camera-based safety assistance system for sliding table saws. This outstanding innovation will help to prevent the up to 120 reportable sliding table saw accidents per month in Germany in the future. For this reason, HAND GUARD has received the German Occupational Safety Award. But that is not all: the system has been certified by the German Employers’ Liability Insurance Association for Wood and Metal and, with the GS seal, redefines the safety standard for sliding table saws on the world market. The Altendorf Group knows what counts – and that is, among other things, “Maximum safety in the trade”. With HAND GUARD, injuries to fingers and hands are a thing of the past.

More efficiency:

New K and F series

The Altendorf Group is committed to always getting the most out of its products and has added many new features to its popular Hebrock K-Series and F-Series edgebanders.

More digitalization:

Connectivity and voice control

Visitors will be able to discuss the topics of machine connectivity and voice control concepts for edge banding machines with the Altendorf Group team at the trade show booth.


More service:

Personal dialog and services with added value

Altendorf customers are always just a click away from their personal contact. A comprehensive service and dialog offering includes an online configurator for sliding table saws as well as individual application advice and a service line for support questions of all kinds.

The Altendorf Group will be presenting information on the products on show and all other innovations at the IWF Atlanta trade fair from August 23 to 26, 2022 in the Georgia World Congress Center, Booth: B4835.
