WA 6 Our introductory saw

Altendorf WA 6

Concentrated quality.

Everyone wants to make a good cut. Our WA 6 offers exceptional value for the money in a number of different ways. The smallest saw in Altendorf’s line of products meets all requirements in terms of features, power, reliability – and, especially, price. It is the perfect introductory model for customers who put quality first.

Small, but Altendorf

The special equipment of the WA 6 leaves hardly anything to be desired.

RAPIDO scorer system

The RAPIDO is the professional tool for the scorer unit. Adjustment is continuous and precise, so the RAPIDO can be fine-tuned to match the cutting width of any main blade. Compared to working with shims, where you have to take the blade off the machine to alter its width, the RAPIDO saves up to 10 minutes, as the blade stays on the machine during adjustment. Range: 3 – 3.8 mm.

Crosscut fence

The DUPLEX fence makes it possible to cut any angle between 0 and 90° very quickly, precisely and variably. Set it to 45° and a mitre cut can be made on both sides of the workpiece without further adjustments. Dimensions are set using a magnifier / measuring scale. Stops to 1,350 mm.

Large extraction hood (PSV)

The PSV comes with a small hood for 90° cuts and a wide hood for mitre cuts. They cover both the main and scoring blade. The hood can be adjusted to any material thickness and is self-locking.

Sliding table

The WA 6 is available with a 1,600, 2,000 or 2,600 mm sliding table incl. steel guides.

The WA 6 – as multifaceted as your projects

  • Aluminium
  • Solid wood
  • Plastic
  • Panel processing

Aluminium

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 6 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.

Plastic

WA 6 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 6 will make your panel-processing work even easier.
