Saw Units + Options

Choose between one-way and two-way tilting saw units.

One-Way Tilt
Altendorf F45 One-Way Tilt Saw
Altendorf F45 One-Way Tilt Saw

Drives for one-way tilt with manual speed adjustment
The motors are manufactured specially to Altendorf’s specifications and have been optimized for use in sliding table saws. They provide up to 20% more torque than conventional electric motors with no increase in power consumption. The three-speed units operate at 3,000, 4,000 and 5,000 rpm and are adjusted manually.

M51100 5.5kW (7.5HP) three speeds
M51101 7.5kW (10HP) three speeds
M51102 11kW (15HP) three speeds

VARIO drive for one-way tilt
This drive offers infinitely variable speed control between 2,000 and 6,000rpm. Matching speed precisely to the material increases not just cutting quality, but also the service life of your saw blades, which, in turn, helps to reduce your costs.

M51103 5.5kW (7.5HP)
M51104 7.5kW (10HP)
Altendorf F45 Extended Cutting Height
Altendorf F45 Extended Cutting Height

Extended cutting height for one-way tilt
This option is fitted out for one- way tilt with a large extraction hood for a maximum saw blade diameter of 550mm and a saw blade projection of no greater than 204mm. The maximum saw blade diameter when used in combination with a scorer unit is 500mm, which corresponds to a saw blade projection of 179mm.

M64080 Only in combination with a motor rated at least 5.5kW (7.5HP).
Two-Way Tilt
Altendorf F45 Two-Way Tilt Saw
Altendorf F45 Two-Way Tilt Saw

Saw unit tilts up to 46° to either side
The ability to tilt the saw unit to either side makes the F45 an even more versatile cutting machine. There is no need to adjust the extraction hood either, as it simply follows the saw unit. The entire movement, from full tilt one way to full tilt the other, takes just 12 seconds. One of the main applications for the two-way tilt function is the sawing of internal mitres, which can be done easily and safely using the crosscut fence. Just as straightforward are simple bevel cuts and compound mitres. VARIO infinitely variable speed control (2,000 – 5,000 rpm) makes operation even faster and more user-friendly, while the extremely compact design of the synchronous motor allows it to be linked to the saw shaft with a rigid connection, eliminating at a stroke the potential for faults associated with indirect belt-based linkages. The tilt adjustment feature, which is firmly anchored at the centre of mass of the saw unit, has already proven its mettle 10,000 times over in the one-way tilting F45: in short, it simply does not twist! The maintenance-free tilt quadrants use a tongue and groove connection system with automatic lubrication.

M18500 5kW (6.8HP)
M51059 Additional charge for 6.5kW (8.8HP)
Altendorf F45 Extended Cutting Height
Altendorf F45 Extended Cutting Height

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.

Today, 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.
