ALTENDORF WA80 TE
with motorised rise/fall and tilt adjustment of the main saw blade.
The Altendorf sliding table is renowned for its smooth, precise running. The large dumbbell rollers guide the moving table with absolute precision between the hard-chromed guide bars. Robust though it is, the table responds to even a light touch, gliding smoothly and securely as if on rails. And it retains this ease of movement even after decades of hard work, dust and dirt.
The STEG second support makes sizing large panels more straightforward for the user.
ON / OFF SWITCH
The practical option. The on/off switches are always right where you need them, at the end of the sliding table. The four keys switch both the main and scoring blades on and off. This option allows you to load a large workpiece before switching the machine on, thus improving safety and convenience. The keys can be operated without you having to switch specially between the machine operating panel and the sliding table switches.
The motorised servo drive for the sliding table moves even the heaviest of workpieces back and forth easily during cutting, taking the physical strain off your body – and your back in particular. The electronic sensor control handle responds to the lightest of touches, so you can maintain an upright and relaxed posture throughout the cutting operation. The TIP-SERVO-DRIVE cannot be used in combination with the on/off switches on sliding table option or the vacuum clamping in sliding table option.
Particularly energy-efficient LEDs render the hazard area around the scorer highly visible.
Altendorf Main Motor
The Altendorf WA80 drive has one-way tilt with manual speed adjustment. The motors are manufactured especially to Altendorf's specifications and have been optimised for use in sliding table saws.
- 4.0 kW (5.5 HP), single speed (basic spec)
- 5.5 kW (7.5 HP), three speeds
- 7.5 kW (10 HP), three speeds
Scoring unit with motorised adjustment: The scorer prevents chipping out on the underside of laminated panels. The rise and fall is motorised, the lateral adjustment manual. When the scoring blade is switched on, the scorer moves to the heights stored. When either the main or scoring blade is switched off, the scorer moves back under the table. The scorer has an independent 0.75kW (1HP) motor and turns at 8200 rpm.
RAPIDO scoring tool: The RAPIDO scoring system makes it easier and quicker to adjust the cutting width to match that of the main blade. How quick? About three minutes, max! Compared to working with shims, there you have to take the blade off the machine to alter its width, the RAPIDO saves at least ten minutes, as the blade stays on the machine during adjustment. Adjustment is continuous so the RAPIDO can be fine-tuned to match any main blade. Adjustment range: 2.8-3.8mm. Dia = 120mm
CROSSCUT FENCE WITH FIXED 90° ANGLE
The crosscut fence with fixed 90° angle allows precision cuts on workpieces of different lengths and formats. The fence can be easily slid from the front to back position without lifting. The basic specification includes stops to 3 200 mm, adjustable using the graduated scale.
CROSSCUT FENCE WITH DIGIT L
For 1/10 mm accuracy when setting the length dimension. The display shows all stop settings applied. The central measuring and display unit calibrates the entire system in one operation. High-capacity batteries and a charger are included.
PARALLELOGRAM CROSS SLIDE
Accurate and wear-free, this system features a robust 90° locking mechanism that ensures the right-angle position is absolutely repeatable. The fence can be angled by up to 47° in either direction. The integrated digital display shows the angle with an accuracy of 1/100° for optimal precision. Also included is length compensation, which is simply set using a scale when the fence is angled. Stops to 3 500 mm.
PARALLELOGRAM WITH DIGIT LDDeveloped specifically for the new parallelogram cross slide (PQS), this display unit (90 mm diagonal) shows the distance to all stops digitally at the same time. Length compensation is straightforward once the fence has been set to the required angle. The fine adjustment of the distance to the stops is accurate to 1/10 mm and the angle is displayed as in the standard parallelogram cross slide. This reduces set up time to an absolute minimum. The high capacity batteries can be recharged very quickly using the integral charger provided. The DIGIT LD displays the angle digitally, enabling a level of precision of +/− 1/100°. The length dimension is calculated automatically as a function of the mitre angle. Including two flip stops and fine adjustment of the angle.
CNC CROSSCUT FENCE UNO 90
The CNC crosscut fence UNO 90, which is fixed in the 90° position, makes it possible to complete both square cuts and mitre cuts with great precision. The flip stop has a maximum travel of 1 900 mm. If greater length is required, the extension supplied can be fitted manually to give a maximum dimension of 2 900 mm.
CNC CROSSCUT FENCE DUO 90This fence features two CNC stops with a maximum travel of 3 500 mm. It is fixed in the 90° position. Workpieces can be positioned against either side of the fence. The CNC crosscut fence DUO 90 is not compatible with the F 45 ProDrive control unit.
CNC CROSSCUT MITRE FENCE DUO FLEXThe DUO Flex fence can be angled manually by up to 47° for easy and convenient square cut and mitre cuts. It includes automatic length compensation and two motorised flip stops (travel to 3 500 mm). It is not necessary to lift the fence to switch between the front and rear positions on the cross slide. Workpieces can be positioned against either side of the fence, which makes it possible to complete compound mitres and mitre cuts at acute or obtuse angles in a single operation. The CNC crosscut fence DUO Flex is not compatible with the F 45 ProDrive control unit.
CROSSCUT MITRE FENCE
This patented Altendorf fence, with integral length compensation, can make both square cuts and mitre cuts. The mitre angle can be adjusted continuously over a range of 49° with a graduated scale and the robust, free-sliding zero-play flip stops can be positioned individually at any distance up to a maximum of 3 500 mm. The outer stop docks into the roller-stabilised telescopic extension for distances longer than about 1 700 mm. When cutting mitres, length compensation means measurements to the stops are accurate whatever the angle. Simply slide the fence to the desired angle, line up the pointer with the same angle on the length compensation scale, then set the flip stop to the length required.
CROSSCUT MITRE FENCE WITH DIGIT L AND DIGIT LDFor 1/10 mm accuracy when setting the length dimension. The display shows all stop settings applied. The central measuring and display unit calibrates the entire system in one operation. High-capacity batteries and a charger are included. The DIGIT LD also displays the angle digitally, enabling a level of precision of +/− 1/100°. The length dimension is calculated automatically as a function of the mitre angle. With integral length compensation. Including two flip stops and fine adjustment.
ONE-SIDED MITRE FENCE
The one-sided mitre fence enables precise cutting of mitres. It is easy to set and can be positioned on the sliding table with the minimum of effort.
CROSSCUT SUPPORT ROLLER
Additional cross slide with floor support roller. This accessory is well worth considering if you plan to be sizing large and heavy workpieces of up to 250 kg. Recommended floor rail: flat steel, 10 x 60 mm (length = 2x table length + 500 mm). The floor rail is to be provided by the customer.
CROSS SLIDE EXTENSION
The fixed cross slide extension (up to 650 mm) with two separate supports makes it easier to saw wider/longer workpieces.
RIP FENCE WITH MANUAL ADJUSTMENT
Setting the fence manually is easy; the precision fine adjustment makes for great accuracy. The hard-chromed round bar system ensures the fence moves smoothly. The rip fence can be swung away below table level in one action when preparing to divide large panels.
RIP FENCE WITH DIGIT X
Digital cutting width display for the rip fence with manual fine adjustment. This electronic measuring system ensures rapid and precise adjustment of the rip fence. Recurring dimensions can be reproduced exactly and checked on the DIGIT X display. The correction for the rip fence position is shown digitally on the machine control unit’s LCD display when working with the saw blade tilted. The system is not subject to wear and is unaffected by dust. Dimensions are corrected automatically when the fence is switched between the up-right and the flat position.
CNC RIP FENCE
The CNC rip fence has a traverse speed of 250 mm/sec. and an accuracy of +/–1/10 mm. The high-precision five-point recirculating ball screw system is low maintenance and, along with the motor, is well protected by its integration into the aluminium profile. The fence detects its position automatically, especially in the danger area around the saw blade, and has an emergency cut-out to prevent the risk of crushing. Dimensions are corrected automatically when the fence is switched between the upright and the flat position or when working with the saw blade tilted.
VACUUM CLAMPING SYSTEM
Altendorf is the first in the world to apply proven vacuum clamping technology to sliding table saws. The system, which is integrated into the sliding table itself, has at its heart a powerful vacuum pump that generates a vacuum via pairs of suction grippers arranged in the sliding table. The various suction zones positioned along the length of the sliding table can be activated individually at the touch of a button, allowing the vacuum to be matched optimally to each workpiece.
Panels of wood, plastic and non-ferrous metals remain securely in position on the sliding table throughout even complex cuts such as angles, long mitres and cuts to an outside dimension. Another touch of a button is all it takes to release the workpiece. Vacuum clamping improves reliability, precision and convenience and helps to eliminate manual operating errors.
All table lengths feature the same five pairs of suction grippers. Each pair can be activated separately.
Additional pairs of suction grippers are available on request.
Not compatible with TIP-SERVO-DRIVE.
MANUAL QUICK ACTION CLAMP
The alternative to the pneumatic clamp. The manual quick-action clamp can be positioned on the sliding table easily and is equally easy to fix in place, ensuring the workpiece is reliably retained on the table and against the crosscut fence. It has a clamping height of up to 200mm and provides extra safety at very little extra cost.
PNEUMATIC PRESSURE BEAM
This is an ideal solution for securely retaining workpieces of up to 80 mm thick, making it particularly useful when working with long and thin materials such as veneers. It comes in two separately-controlled pieces. A 6 bar pneumatic connection is required.
DUPLEX DOUBLE SIDED MITRE FENCE
DUPLEX fences make it possible to make mitre cuts at any angle between 0 and 90° with speed and precision. At 45° a mitre cut can be made on both sides of the workpiece without moving the fence. Dimensions are set using a magnifier, a measuring scale and a length compensation scale for frequently recurring angles. All DUPLEX fences can be positioned anywhere along the entire length of the sliding table.
DUPLEX DThe DUPLEX D provides the same functionality as the DUPLEX plus a digital angle display that shows values to an accuracy of 1/100°. Digital angle display and analogue length scale for adjustment, integral length compensation for frequently recurring angles. Batteries included.
DUPLEX DDAn exclusive Altendorf development, the DUPLEX DD has been patented worldwide. The high precision DUPLEX DD electronics incorporate automatic length compensation and calculate the distance to the stops as a function of the angle on both sides of the fence and display both figures digitally. Checking of measurements, complicated calculatiuons and test cuts are all unnecessary. Allows for crosscutting to 1 350mm or 2 150mm.
Long narrow work pieces can be cut parallel or into a conical shape with absolute accuracy using the PALIN fence. As the fence itself is flush with the sliding table in the vertical plane and the work piece is laid sideways against the stop, there is no reduction in cutting length and workpieces of differing lengths can be cut without moving the fence up and down the sliding table. With the measuring system removed, the fence acts as an additional workpiece support. Also available in a digital form as PALIN D.
Mounted on the eye-level control panel, the clip board allows you to attach your cutting lists so you have your ongoing jobs in view at all times.
LASER CUTTING LINE MARKER
The laser cutting line marker shows the cutting line clearly for all cut lengths, which is useful when trimming or cutting marked jobs such as steps. Use it to save both time and materials.
The practical toolbox is a closable container capable of holding up to six tool carriers (maximum saw blade diameter 550 mm) ready for use. This option requires a minimum sliding table length of 3 000 mm. The basic toolbox includes 4 saw blade carriers.
COOLANT SPRAY DEVICE
Use of a coolant spray device is recommended when working with plastics with a low melting point and for certain light metal alloys. Your Altendorf will cut nonferrous metals and plastics cleanly, with sharp contours, to within a tenth of a millimetre.
