R&J supply New Altendorf F45 Pro Drive at Londons Imperial college

R&J Machinery are very proud to have once again been chosen to supply Imperial College London with an Altendorf saw. This time the F45 Pro Drive was the preferred machine, with the option of a Digit LD cross-cut fence to allow 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. and displays angles in digital format, enabling a level of precision of ±1/100°. The length dimension is calculated automatically as a function of the mitre angle. Two flip stops with fine adjustment, two batteries and a charger being included. The machine was also specified with a motorised CNC Rip fence at 1300mm. The CNC rip fence has a traverse speed of 250 mm/s and an accuracy of ±1/10 mm.

The high-precision five-point recirculating ball spindle system needs little 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. We look forward to assisting Imperial college further in the future.
