The job of cutting and sawing aluminium requires extreme precision. Altendorf sliding table saws have proven themselves for years in the aluminium-processing industry. As the perfect tool for cutting and sawing aluminium, HAND GUARD does the job with extraordinary precision and can be used individually. 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.
