Number one for ease of operation and ergonomics

An overview of the key features.

Control panel on the machine frame

You can control the height and tilt adjustment of the main saw blade at the press of a button. The tilt angle is shown on the digital display.

Motorised rip fence

The motorised rip fence has a traverse speed of 250 mm/sec. 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 protect-ed by its integration into the aluminium profile. The fence automatically recognizes the position it’s in, especially when it reaches the danger area around the saw blade. It has an emergency cut-out to prevent the risk of crushing.

Crosscut fence with fixed 90° angle

The robustly mounted crosscut fence enables precise cutting of 90° angles. All settings are easy to read off the slanted scales. The flip stops are robust, free of play and are easy to slide individually along the full crosscutting range.


Sliding table

Table length 3,000 mm

The large dumbbell rollers guide the moving table with absolute precision between the hard-chromed guide bars. Robust though it is, the table responds even to a light touch, gliding smoothly and securely as if it were on rails. And it retains this ease of movement even after decades of hard work, dust and dirt.

WA 8 X - high performance cuts in any material

  • Aluminium
  • Solid wood
  • Plastic
  • Panel processing


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, WA 8 X 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.

WA 8 X 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 WA 8 X will make your panel-processing work even easier.
