Berlin, 1906: In order to produce his own furniture designs, Wilhelm Altendorf built a machine saw on which the workpiece is guided over the saw blade on a sliding table.

Over the course of the following century "the Altendorf” became a legend, and the company became the world market leader for sliding table saws. Today over 300 people work for Altendorf in countries all around the world. Every year 4,500 sliding table saws leave its factories in Minden, Germany, Qinhuangdao, China and Blumenau, Brazil, on their way to international customers working with wood, metal and plastics. The NEW F45 The new F45 is a masterpiece of technology and design. The comprehensively redesigned machine frame combines absolutely un-recedented torsion resistance with extremely low levels of vibration, while the smooth front and clear foot space on the floor enable you to operate closer to the machine and the workpiece.
The famously smooth-running sliding table, which has received a number of design tweaks, remains the undisputed benchmark for precision cutting and minimal maintenance. Complementing these winning features is the eye-level control unit, with which you determine the height and tilt of the saw blade plus, depending on your choice of control package, speed and other functions. The crisp new industrial design underlines the distinctive quality of the Altendorf brand, melding characterful design and timeless aesthetics. Wave goodbye to compromise: from now on you and only you decide what features your new F 45 will have. Which control unit you work with is entirely up to you, as is the choice of labour-saving features.
The most important thing to know is that there are three control units available, every one of which (!) allows you to move up to four axes and tilt the saw unit – to either side. And you can choose exactly the options you need irrespective of the control unit selected.
The new F 45 is the first and hitherto only sliding table saw to offer you these options. Only one decision have we taken out of your hands completely: whichever control unit you pick for your new F 45, it will be mounted at eye level. This configuration makes the operator's life much simpler, because the swivel-mounted display is always visible from any working position – even from the right-hand side of the saw blade. Fit out your new F 45 to your precise requirements: it really is time to wave goodbye to compromise.
