In 1906, Wilhelm Altendorf built a saw for the manufacture of his own furniture designs, in which the workpiece was guided on a sliding table through the saw blade.
In the following century, "the Altendorf" became a myth and the company became the world market leader for the machine type sliding table saw. Today, more than 260 people work for Altendorf worldwide. The production site in Minden, Germany, and in Qinhuangdao, PR China, which was built in 1995, leave 2400 sliding table saws per year on their way to international customers in the wood, metal and plastics processing industry. Since the founding of the company and the invention of the sliding table, Altendorf has become synonymous throughout the world for this type of machine.
The Altendorf Group, headquartered in East Westphalia, is the international market and technology leader for the machine sizing range.

saw blade height and tilt (up to 46° in either direction), depending on machine specification, CNC rip fence, CNC crosscut fence, scorer and VARIO. The white keys are used to enter the numerical values.

Altendorf MAGIS is the new digital, graphical operator guidance system that makes complex workflows straightforward. Cut by cut, the intelligent MAGIS software guides users through the predefined cutting sequence clearly and reliably. Operators can expect savings in both time and material as a result.
Altendorf MAGIS always keeps the big picture in view: it acquires the relevant data from the cut optimisation package, detects the saw specification and then incorporates this information into the visualisation. Easily understood symbols displayed on a tablet guide the user through the necessary steps. The loaded dimension specifications for manual fences or automatic adjustment of motorised fences are clearly visible and simplify work from the outset. The system can also be used to label finished workpieces with information including a barcode that can be read with a scanner to access instructions for subsequent processing. This means that every single machine operator in the production process knows exactly what needs to be done next.
