With motorized tilt and rise/fall adjustment of main saw blade.

Machine frame control panel

All functions can be accessed easily on control panel present on machine frame. The tilt and the rise/fall of main saw blade can be easily controlled with the help of a button. Tilt angle is also shown on digital display.

Large Extraction Hood

The large extraction and the safety hood system coming with these Altendorf machines are designed to ensure optimized airflow. It is also possible to switch between the narrow and the wide hoods in a matter of seconds. The hood offers cutting heights with or without the scoring unit that can go as high up as 125 mm. It can also be fully swung away to one side.

Rip Fence

The rip fence is rather smooth and quite precise to adjust. It comes with hard chromeplated round bar which ensures effective and smooth movement of the fence. If you are looking to properly divide large panels, simply swing away the rip fence under the machine table level.

Crosscut Fence

The crosscut fence is robustly mounted and enables extremely precise cutting results of 90° angles. All the settings are very easy to read from the slanted scales. Flip stops are quite robust and wholly free of play. They can also be easily slid individually along full crosscutting range.
