F 45

Our masterpiece

Our masterpiece for your success

An overview of the F 45’s key features.


The F 45 ElmoDrive incorporates the most advanced and comprehensive control technology available for sliding table saws. The operating concept employs a huge 12” touchscreen that enables you to select the axes and the software functions.

Motor rating 5.5 kW (7.5 HP)

The motors are manufactured specially to Altendorf’s specifications and have been optimised for use in sliding table saws. They provide up to 20 % more torque than conventional electric motors without increasing power consumption.

CNC rip fence

The CNC rip fence has a traverse speed of 250 mm/s and an accuracy of ±1/10 mm. The high-precision five-point recirculating ball spindle system needs little maintenance and, along with the motor, is well protected by its integration into the aluminium profile.

CNC crosscut fence

This patented Altendorf fence, with integral length compensation, makes it easier to perform bevel cuts and mitre cuts precisely in one function. The set angle can be adjusted continuously over a range of 49° with a graduated scale.

The F 45 – as multifaceted as your projects.


The job of cutting and sawing aluminium requires extreme precision. Altendorf sliding table saws have proven themselves for years in the aluminium-processing industry. As the perfect tool for cutting and sawing aluminium, HAND GUARD does the job with extraordinary precision and can be used individually. With the help of this machine, you can cleanly cut aluminium with sharp contours and to within a tenth of a millimetre.

Solid wood

The variety of grains lends a very special look to solid-wood furniture. The furniture is robust and stable. It also offers a degree of high quality that you can feel. The trimming, ripping and refinement of wood and boards create a different challenge. Discover our feature options that are specially designed for the processing of solid wood, features that turn the job into child’s play.


HAND GUARD cuts all commercially available plastics in any desired form. The machine can easily handle even complex composite materials like carbon composite plates – and it can cut them to within a tenth of a millimetre! Learn more now about plastics processing with Altendorf.

Panel processing

Panel processing is a job that creates new challenges for carpenters and cabinet-makers day in and day out. Commercially available half-size panels are usually too large and, in the worst case, require two people to handle them. Added to this are scrap panels that could possibly be used for one thing or another at some point in the future. Before long, a pile of scrap wood has formed, and no one can find what he or she needs in it. The features offered by our HAND GUARD will make your panel-processing work even easier.

The dimensions are approximations


Our safety system for motorised rip fences enables you to work even more precisely and safely. The intelligent sensor system is capable of recognising workpieces starting at a width of just 115 mm. It determines the exact point in time when the workpiece was completely cut through and moves the rip fence by 4 mm in order to expose the workpiece. Cutting marks and kick-back effect farewell!


HAND GUARD will warn you about potential dangers by flashing an optical signal. As a result, it does not interfere with your work style or constrain you as you work. Should a potentially dangerous situation occur nonetheless, the safety system will react within seconds: The entire saw unit quickly slows down, and the saw blade abruptly stops. After the system has been activated, the machine can immediately go back to work. No damage to the machine or saw blade occurs – the productivity of operations remains intact:
