Panel saw drive unit 133
A masterpiece of engineering. The ultimate in precision and smoothness
This precision guiding system will carry maximum loads without compromising the smooth and accurate stroke of the sliding table. The “X”-configuration of the roller bearings optimally distributes workpiece weight to all sides. With a roller bearing system, the full width of the bearing is in contact with the guiding track. With no single point of contact between the bearing and the guiding track as found on conventional ball bearing systems, the roller bearing will never wear a groove into the guiding track. This ensures play-free guiding for the lifetime of the machine. The “X-Roll” system is backed with a 10-year factory guarantee.
... FORMAT-4 Premium machines for premium requirements
Slot cutting is possible with Format-4 panel saws. The use of adjustable dado tools, specifically developed by Format-4, can be used thanks to the removable circular saw flange and the table insert.
There are two versions available for the operation of the scoring unit: Classic or Automatic. Classic: the height and lateral setting of the scoring blade is adjusted manually from the top of the saw unit table. Automatic: scoring saw blade height adjustment is electrical, and the side adjustment is manual. When the scoring unit is switched on, the scoring blade rises to its pre-set position automatically. When the main blade is switched off, the scoring blade automatically sinks back under the table. First class comfort!
A red LED strip immediately signals the operation of the scoring unit and offers even more working safety. (Option)
The clamping system is maintenance free and offers premium comfort for many years: Change saw blades effortlessly in literally no time at all.
An alternative to the worldwide unique Format-4 saw blade quick change system "Easy-lock" is now the "Quick-lock" clamping system, which with the use of just one tool makes it quick and easy to change the saw blade.
The rip fence is positioned by a motor and runs via a dust-free integrated ball spindle in the saw table. Fence positioning is accurate to 0.1 mm, this combined with fast positioning speed and that the saw blade height and tilt can be adjusted simultaneously, ensures precision and significant reduction in working time.
The 8x ball bearings, integrated guide rollers and bearings of the outrigger table ensure an incredibly smooth operation upon maximum loading capacity. The support rail is moved along an “X-Roll” guiding system and is fast and fine-adjustable. The LED display enables you to set the required angle to one tenth of a degree. The fence can be tilted to any position between -45° and +45° and guarantees precise mitre cuts.
As an option, it is also possible to equip the saw with the wireless push button control “ON” switch of the main blade and scoring blade to the sliding table, speeding up the work process further.
“X-Roll”, making a difference:
The solidly built parallelogram outrigger table enables mitre cuts from –45° to +45°. The surface available for the workpiece remains the same regardless of the angle setting. The digital display of the angle setting is accurate to 1/100th of a degree. The angle/length compensation is carried out using either a Nonius scale or “digi-compensation plus”.
No reading errors due to scales and vernier. No time-wasting with arduous approximations of angle values. The advantage of the FORMAT-4 degree index is that the stop is set and fixed without losing time or making reading errors.
The outrigger table with workpiece roller is large in its design and the eight ball bearing guide rollers in the support arm ensure an extremely smooth movement, even when under maximum load.
The telescopic fence enables crosscuts of up to 3200 mm. Top class engineering and ease of use are features which are a part of the standard equipment. The scale and the magnifying glass on the stop ensure precise adjustments and settings from the operating area.
On request, we will equip your Format-4 with the digital telescopic fence. Below, you see the cleverly integrated electronic digital scale with values correct to 0.1 millimeter. Additional functions, for example the setting of successive measurements, make your daily working life easier.
The rip fence can be fitted with an electronic digital display. The perfect integration of the electronic unit allows you to turn the display around 90°, so the values can be clearly seen and read from the operating area. Additional functions such as the input of incremental measurements make your daily working life easier. Further highlights:
The overhead saw guard is height adjustable and can be swung away. The average depth for especially wide work-pieces is 608 mm.
The tried and tested tool compartment positioned directly at the front of the machine has now been made even more practical with the addition of two magnets for the storage of the riving knife and the scoring blade. There will also be the possibility to attach the edging shoe directly to the machine for storage. So everything is always in its place!
Your Format-4 can be optionally fitted with a spraying unit. High performance lubricating oil can be sprayed directly onto the saw blade, transported via piping from the spraying unit.
The new Kappa 400, a lot of saw for your money!
