Sliding table saw HAND GUARD

There can be no two ways about it when it comes to highest level of safety. But a system: HAND GUARD. The unique, two-camera early-recognition system not only protects your employees, but also safeguards your jobs and your cost estimation. We have done our job only when you have succeeded at your job.

Greatest safety for your craft

The HAND GUARD features at a glance.

Optical Safety System

Two cameras collect data for hand recognition from a wide space around the saw blade. As soon as intruding hands are detected there, the sawing unit is quickly lowered and quickly stopped within a quarter of a second.


The HANDS GUARD's 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 5/5.5 kW

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 aluminum profile.


HAND GUARD is not only safe, but also extremely versatile. HAND GUARD is a true all-rounder thanks to its wide range of configuration options. The safety system also works with gloves, can handle nearly every type of saw blade and is designed for virtually any material.
