Altendorf F45

A masterpiece of technology and design

The comprehensively redesigned Altendorf F45 machine frame combines absolutely unprecedented torsion resistance with extremely low levels of vibration, while the smooth front and clear foot space on the floor enable you to operate closer to the machine and the workpiece. The famously smooth-running sliding table, which has received a number of design tweaks, remains the undisputed benchmark for precision cutting.

Altendorf WA6

Compact, cost-effective, fully featured

What to do when one has little space, plus a limited budget, but quality must still be maintained? When these requirements must be met by a sliding table saw, Altendorf's answer is: an Altendorf WA6. It's the smallest Altendorf there is. But in spite of its smaller dimensions, its considerable abilities are impressive: with its powerful range of equipment, it stands out even in the smallest space.

The Legend of Altendorf

Altendorf are responsible for the introduction of the first sliding table panel saws. Designed by Wilhiem Altendorf in Berlin back in 1906, Altendorf panel saws were used for his own production of furniture.

Nowadays, Altendorf employs over 260 people, has factories in Germany, China, and Brazil and sells over 2,600 sliding table saws per year into the wood, metal and plastic industries. As a company it is renowned as a specialist manufacturer of sliding table saws with a patented table mechanism, meaning that Altendorf panel saws are still the most desired woodworking machines on the market.

The current range of Altendorf products includes the F45, F45 Elmo III, Elmo IV, Elmo IIID, WA80 and WA6 panel saws. Only the WA6 is made in China in the Altendorf Factory, then shipped to Germany for assembly. All of the other panel saws sold into the European market are German made in full.
