Sliding Table Saws
As the inventor of the sliding table saw, Wilhelm Altendorf discovered that the only way to achieve an absolutely straight edge was to guide a static workpiece through the rotating saw blade by holding it firmly on a moving support. To begin with, Wilhelm Altendorf used a wooden push slide system to guide the workpiece. In the 1930s, Altendorf developed the double roller carriage. Since the development of the aluminum sliding table in the 1950s, there is no better system than the double roller carriage in terms of smooth running, precision, torsion-resistance and low maintenance.
Today, Altendorf is the #1 seller of sliders in the world. All models of Altendorf sliding table saws deliver the utlimate in accuracy and consistency of cut.
The WA series of Altendorf SlidersTM target the entry-level market. These sturdy machines are equipped with perfected, vertical guidance for accurate, square cuts over the full cutting length. They are torsion-resistant and inherently stable, providing smooth movement regardless of workload weight.
The F-45 series of Altendorf SlidersTM were designed to be a blend of innovation, dependability and quality. For an Altendorf user, that means the first cut delivers the quality and precision required for the final chip-free cut, regardless of material, including solid wood, plastics, and non-ferrous metals.
