Altendorf Sliding table saws


Making the best even safer.

There can be no two ways about it when it comes to highest level of safety. But a system: HAND GUARD. The unique, two-camera early-recognition system not only protects your employees, but also safeguards your jobs and your cost estimation. We have done our job only when you have succeeded at your job.

Greatest security for your craft

The HAND GUARD features at a glance.

Optical Safety System

Two cameras collect data for hand recognition from a wide space around the saw blade. As soon as intruding hands are detected there, the sawing unit is quickly lowered and quickly stopped within a quarter of a second.

Elmo Drive

The F 45 ElmoDrive incorporates the most advanced and comprehensive control technology available for sliding table saws. The operating concept employs a large 12” touchscreen that enables you to select the axes and the software functions.

Motor rating 5/5.5 kW

The Vario motors are manufactured and optimised specially for use in sliding table saws. They provide up to 20 % more torque than conventional electric motors without increasing power consumption.

CNC rip fence

The CNC rip fence has a traverse speed of 250 mm/s and an accuracy of ±1/10 mm. The high-precision five-point recirculating ball spindle system needs little maintenance and, along with the motor, is well protected by its integration into the aluminium profile.

With the help of this machine, you can cleanly cut aluminium with sharp contours and to within a tenth of a millimetre.

Solid wood

The variety of grains lends a very special look to solid-wood furniture. The furniture is robust and stable. It also offers a degree of high quality that you can feel. The trimming, ripping and refinement of wood and boards create a different challenge. Discover our feature options that are specially designed for the processing of solid wood, features that turn the job into child’s play.

HAND GUARD cuts all commercially available plastics in any desired form. The machine can easily handle even complex composite materials like carbon composite plates – and it can cut them to within a tenth of a millimetre! Learn more now about plastics processing with Altendorf.

Panel processing

Panel processing is a job that creates new challenges for carpenters and cabinet-makers day in and day out. Commercially available half-size panels are usually too large and, in the worst case, require two people to handle them. Added to this are scrap panels that could possibly be used for one thing or another at some point in the future. Before long, a pile of scrap wood has formed, and no one can find what he or she needs in it. The features offered by our HAND GUARD will make your panel-processing work even easier.
