The FORMAT4 kappa automatic beam saw fulfils the individual requirements of the discerning woodworker with efficient panel sizing with an excellent price/performance ratio, with a 2m² less space requirement than saws with the same cutting length.

The classic model convinces with the generous basic specification, with cutting lengths of 3,200 mm and 4,300 mm, two moveable support tables with air cushion function and a pressure device for an exact right angle cut when crosscutting. For perfect, chip free results, the main saw aggregate is equipped with a 7.5kW motor, has a max. 320 mm saw blade diameter and 68 mm saw blade projection. The intuitive touchscreen control concept ensures a quick and simple control of the machine.

The saw carriage with main blade and scoring blade running on ground and hardened round guides ensures an extremely smooth movement and an exact cutting angle.
The roller track supports the material pusher transport of panels and guarantees a precise feed of the panel material to the cutting line.
Solid steel clamps, pneumatically controlled, guarantee a safe and damage-free clamping of panel stacks (opening height 80 mm) and individual small panels.
The panel pusher, made from solid steel is guided on both sides and is equipped with a magnet measurement band system. The combination of a highly precise servomotor and solid material grips ensures maximum repeatability is achieved.
The constant speed of the saw carriage is variable and can be set between 1–40 m/min from the control panel. The rack and pinion system on which the carriage runs guarantees a constant cutting quality regardless of the material being processed.
The pressure device with rollers presses the workpiece against the fence and guarantees an exact 90° angle (for workpiece widths 50–1200 mm).
In combination with the cutting optimisation software a label can be printed for each workpiece with various information (order number, intended use, CNC program, which side is to be put through edgebander).
The simple design of the control panel and the clearly laid out menu guidance of the software control with a Windows based system, is intuitive in its operation. The kappa automatic can be equipped with Ardis cutting optimisation software. As an option, it can also be equipped with a label printer.
The pressure beam lowers itself before making the cut and presses the workpiece onto the saw table. This pressure holds the workpiece during the cut and can be manually regulated up to max. 3 bar. The pressure beam also carries out the extraction of the dust and chips created by the saw blade.  

The Format4 kappa automatic beam saw, guarantees simple operation and maximum efficiency with numerous software packages.
