Machine Overview

Introducing the Altendorf WA8 X Panel saw

The Altendorf WA8 X is the perfect solution for workshops that require eye level control with a motorised rip fence. The eye level control panel of the Altendorf WA8X can be pivoted to the most convenient position for ease of use, allowing the control of the motorised rip fence, powered rise and fall and not forgetting the powered tilt. Our stocked WA8 X panel saws come with a 3200mm sliding table, 1300mm CNC rip fence and scorer. The sliding table is typically Altendorf, smooth running, accurate and incredibly reliable, due to the tried and trusted double roller carriage. The saw unit is quite powerful and well balanced as you would expect from this prestigious manufacturer, who have been making panel saws for over 111 years!

Our experienced sales team would be more than happy to discuss all available options to you either by phone, at our showroom or by appointment at your workshop.

Product Features

  • Eye level control panel - All functions are easily accessed on the eye level control panel. You can control the rip fence, rise/fall and tilt of the main saw blade at the touch of a button.
  • Large extraction hood - The large Altendorf extraction and safety hood system boasts a design which ensures optimized airflow. You can switch between narrow and wide hoods in seconds. The hood allows cutting heights of up to 125 mm (with or without scoring unit) and can be swung away fully to one side.
  • Motorized 1300 mm Rip fence - The rip fence is smooth in operation due to its recirculating ball spindle system and has an accuracy of +/- 1/10mm. If you need to divide large panels, you can swing the rip fence away under the level of the machine table.
  • Crosscut fence - The robustly mounted crosscut fence enables precise cutting of 90° angles. All settings are easy to read off the slanted scales. The flip stops are robust, free of play and are easy to slide individually along the full crosscutting range.
