Altendorf Hand Guard

Developed to the highest demands, with unbeatable safety

New for 2021, the Altendorf Hand Guard features the world’s first and only optical system that protects people, machines and materials. With its unique early detection system featuring two cameras, when Altendorf Hand Guard detects the user approaching the saw blade it retracts it away in the blink of an eye. The machine is not damaged and is ready for use again immediately. The detection system works for all materials, and even knows when the operator is wearing gloves.

No matter what industry you are in – with the Altendorf Hand Guard you not only get the greatest safety, but also flexibility and the highest precision. If a capacitive system only offers you a limited range of materials, the Altendorf Hand Guard optical system gives you almost all options for material processing. It works for all materials, e.g. non-ferrous metals, damp wood or plastics.


Two Models, One Promise: Safety, Flexibility and Precision

R&J Machinery is proud to present the new Altendorf Hand Guard, an outstanding leap-forward in safety and performance. And with safety comes performance – the Altendorf Hand Guard is available in two base specifications with class-leading features as below. A full-range of additional options can be configured, please enquire for details.

Precision machinery since 1906

Altendorf are responsible for the introduction of the first sliding table panel saws. Designed by Wilhiem Altendorf in Berlin back in 1906, Altendorf panel saws were used for his own production of furniture.

Today, Altendorf employs over 260 people, has factories in Germany, China, and Brazil and sells over 2,600 sliding table saws per year into the wood, metal and plastic industries. As a company it is renowned as a specialist manufacturer of sliding table saws with a patented table mechanism, meaning that Altendorf panel saws are still the most desired woodworking machines on the market.
