WA 8 TE Sliding Table
The Altendorf sliding table is renowned for its smooth and exact running. This is hallmark of an Altendorf. It all comes down to design: The table runs on large dumb bell rollers sandwiched between hard chromed guide bars. This guarantees absolute precision. The system’s large rollers ensure smooth action, meaning the table takes less effort to move. It glides as securely as if it were on rails. This quality running will endure decades of heavy load bearing in the constant presence of dust and chips. It needs virtually no maintenance. Each time the table moves, the brush fitted to the upper part automatically cleans the round guide bars. The system operates without any lubrication. The table’s hollow multi-chamber aluminium extrusion guarantees optimal torsion resistance and rigidity. The principle of the sliding table. Wilhelm Altendorf discovered that the only way to achieve an absolutely straight edge, which in turn is required as a reference edge for precise rip and crosscutting, was to guide a static work piece 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 aluminium sliding table in the 1950s we know of no better system than the double roller carriage in terms of smooth running, precision, torsion-resistance and low maintenance.
