The Altendorf WA 80 table saw machines

WHAT MAKES THE ALTENDORF WA 80 TABLE SAW TECHNOLOGY SO USEFUL?

As two of the main products in the long history of Altendorf, the pair of WA 80s have the right specifications to beat manual sawing – and competitor products – hands down. Whether you are after a reasonable cutting width, machines you can adjust to provide a new cutting angle or a CNC rip fence option, these incredibly versatile sliding table saws deliver every time. What's more, they have been engineered to provide excellent contact between the blade and the workpiece at all times.

Altendorf's table saw technology – basic equipment

The Altendorf WA 80 comes in two variants, the WA 80 TE and the WA 80 X. Both of these sliding table saws offer the same advantages over manual sawing and have the same width and height dimensions. The pair are closely associated in terms of price and can be used in similar settings. In fact, they also come supplied with some great features which they both share. Although these are referred to as Altendorf basics, many of them are much more than mere entry-level features.

For example, each has a digital display to show the tilt angle the blade has been set at so you do not need to constantly monitor this in a manual sense. Indeed, there is a motorized rise and fall adjustment system for the main saw blade that comes as standard – a technology that can also be used to alter the angle of the blade without the need for any manual controls. In addition, when the crosscut fence is fixed at a right angle there is the possibility to operate the manual adjustment system using a graduated scale of up to 3,200 mm which is more than enough for most woodworking firms, to say the least. Lastly, the 4 kW power output of both the WA 80 Altendorf sliding table saws means that 4,000 RPMs can be generated when the workpiece makes contact with the blade, helping to ensure precise cutting every time.

Spatial requirements for the Altendorf WA 80 table saw range

This is an important consideration for any woodworking business that is looking for a high-quality table saw machine at the right price. Both Altendorf WA 80 machines have a saw protrusion of 150 mm at its maximum and can accommodate a saw blade diameter 450 mm at the most. With an adjustment to the blade angle of 90°, the saw blade protrusion can be set to anywhere between zero and 150 mm. A corresponding adjustment to an angle of 45° means that range is reduced from zero to 103 mm.

The longest dimension of the Altendorf WA 80 sliding table is 4,300 mm, something that includes an infinitely adjustable top carriage locking mechanism. The maximum cutting length when using a clamping shoe or a crosscut fence is 4,010 mm. The table height is 910 mm and it should be mentioned that this height is designed to be the optimal level for most operatives who are handling wood with the table saw.

Finally, with a crosscut fence, the maximum length possible is 3,200 mm while the corresponding length when a crosscut-mitre fence is used is 3,500 mm. In short, these saws have the right width and length characteristics to fit in perfectly in most factories and workshops across the United States. A tremendous amount of flexibility to operators. There again, depending on the control package selected, the speed of operation and other functions can be fine-tuned, too. Once they have found the F 45, or a product in the even more extensive Altendorf WA series, many woodworking businesses realize that their search for a top-notch powered panel saw is over. Altendorf really does have sliding table saws of all shapes and sizes to suit every kind of enterprise.

ACCURATE: THE ALTENDORF WA 80 TE


The Altendorf WA 80 TE is a machine that offers a great deal of dependability, for example, by offering a rip fence cutting width of 1,000 mm which can be adjusted with ease. An additional floor support option means that it can handle workpieces with a greater length - up to 4,300 mm - but even without this accessory, a very respectable sliding table length of 3,400 mm is possible. A RAPIDO scoring system with a generous adjustment range is one of the popular accessories for the Altendorf WA 80 TE and this can be backed up by a handy LED illumination system, too, if wanted. Furthermore, you can opt for a laser cutting line marker for this Altendorf machine, as well, another way of ensuring accuracy is maintained at all times.

ERGONOMIC: THE ALTENDORF WA 80 X


Looking for a machine that is a little different for the price you pay for it? If so, then the Altendorf WA 80 X may well be for you. It has a CNC-controlled rip fence rather than a manual one. It also offers an eye-level control panel which is a big advantage in some furniture manufacturing plants. This machine offers operators the chance to use on/off switches on the sliding table itself. In addition, the  Altendorf WA 80 X can be supplied with a pneumatic hold-down beam for its sliding table which helps operators to ensure their workpieces make perfect contact with the fast-spinning blade more easily. A single-sided miter fence is another accessory worth mentioning plus the range of DUPLEX double-sided mitre fences, some of which can be adjusted digitally. Lastly, there is a PALIN parallel cutting device that you can choose to invest in, too, an accessory that can be utilized with the machine seamlessly and fine-tuned with ease for different sorts of cutting task.
