OUR INTELLIGENT SAFETY SYSTEMS

FOR EVEN MORE SAFETY ON THE SLIDING TABLE SAW

Ever since the very first use of a saw blade for processing wood and other materials, the wood industry has been researching intensively for newer and more efficient ways to make working on saws and other woodworking machines safer. Because: mistakes happen. Even the most experienced employee. That makes us human.

A first, important step was the further development of the existing table saws by Wilhelm Altendorf, which ultimately led to the invention of the sliding table saw in 1906. Since then, we at Altendorf have also been dealing with the topic of "safety on sliding table saws". Starting with little helpers who fix the workpiece securely on the sliding table, such as our pneumatic quick-action clamp, to intelligent safety systems that react early and eliminate a dangerous situation before it can even arise.

Protect yourself and your employees with our safety systems for the Altendorf sliding table saws. Read on to find out more.


OUR GUARDIAN - ALTENDORF HAND GUARD

Our Hand Guard safety system is based on the early detection of a possible dangerous situation. With the help of two cameras, the system recognizes whether and to what extent such a situation exists. This data is in turn processed by a powerful hand recognition program. If the safety system detects a hazardous situation, the hazard is eliminated within a quarter of a second.

ALTENDORF HAND GUARD AT A GLANCE

  • Early detection of the danger
  • No damage when triggered
  • Ready to use again immediately
  • Suitable for all materials
  • No work restrictions
  • Also works with gloves
  • Can be used with all saw blades

AN INTELLIGENT SAFETY SYSTEM WITH MANY ADVANTAGES

Our hand guard warns you of a possible dangerous situation with an optical signal. So it does not interfere directly with your way of working, nor does it restrict you at work. Should a dangerous situation nevertheless arise, the safety system reacts in a matter of seconds: the saw unit is lowered quickly and the saw blade is stopped quickly. After triggering the system, the machine is immediately ready for use again. There is no damage to the machine or saw blade - the productivity of your company is maintained.

HIGHEST PRECISION AND SAFETY - ALTENDORF RIP FENCE SECURITY

With our safety system for the motorized rip fence, you now work even more precisely and safely than before. The intelligent sensor system already recognizes workpieces with a width of 115 mm. It determines the exact point in time at which the workpiece was completely cut and moves the rip fence away by 4 mm to expose it. Say Goodbye to cuts and kick-back effect!

ALTENDORF RIP FENCE SECURITY

  • No more traces on the cutting edge
  • No kick-back effect
  • Easy and safe removal of the workpiece
  • Can be activated via the control
  • Works from a workpiece width of 115 mm
  • Intelligent sensor technology

SAFE REMOVAL OF YOUR WORKPIECES MADE EASY

With our safety system "Rip Fence Security" the workpiece is automatically exposed at the rip fence after the cutting process. This enables you to push your workpiece past the saw blade easily and safely without leaving any marks on the cutting edge. It also prevents the material from being thrown away, known as a kick-back. The workpiece cannot wedge between the saw blade and the rip fence. Find out more about our new system now.
