You never work alone: exciting innovations from Altendorf Group America at IWF 2022

  • Press releases

Under the motto “You never work alone“, the Altendorf Group America with its Altendorf sliding table saws and Hebrock edgebanders will be presenting many exciting innovations at this year’s International Woodworking Fair (IWF). 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.


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 the market as well as adding new features to already established series. The Altendorf Group America knows what counts and thus acts, among other things, as a digital pulse generator for the trade.

More safety:


At IWF, the Altendorf Group America is presenting HAND GUARD, the world’s first certified AI- and camera-based safety assistance system for sliding table saws. This outstanding innovation will help to prevent a large number of reportable sliding table saw accidents 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. With HAND GUARD, injuries to fingers and hands are a thing of the past.
Also, HAND GUARD has been announced as a finalist for the renowned IWF Challengers Distinguished Achievement Award.
