Altendorf’s sensored rip fence safety zone
The safety clearance of the CNC-driven rip fence in front of the saw blade is 180 mm for all Altendorf F 45 sliding table saws. To make this zone even safer, Altendorf has introduced a sensor in the saw unit’s tilt segment to distinguish saw blade’s tilt state. If the sensor detects a non-tilted blade, the fence can be moved and positioned up to 50 mm in front of the saw blade rapidly. If the sensor detects even just a slight tilt however, the CNC rip fence is immediately slowed down and approaches its specified end position only under constant manual confirmation by the operator. This optimisation increases not only safety but also productivity, especially if the cutting plan involves many narrow parts. To learn more on the new benefits, follow the link below.
