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.
