The  highlight of the Format4 innovation forge: The new double-pivot circular saw unit. Pivoting in both directions (+/- 46) allows a completely new dimension in working with the panel saw:

  • Mitre cuts of frame parts with continuously overhead visible side
  • Complex compound cuts 
  • Grooves in a miter
  • and many more.
The clamping system is maintenance free and offers premium comfort for many years: Change saw blades effortlessly in literally no time at all.
The scoring unit blade width and height adapt automatically to the stored tool information and also to the respective teeth width of the main saw blade. Any changes to these standard scoring settings can be saved and retrieved when using the same tool in the future.

Removing the scoring blade when using large diameter saw blades is no longer necessary! The new Format4 parks the scoring blade at the touch of a button, leaving enough space for a large diameter blade, and in doing so, saves valuable production time. Additionally the park position also protects the scoring blade from resin.

A red LED strip immediately signals the operation of the scoring unit and offers even more working safety. (Option)

An alternative to the worldwide unique Format4 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.


Every cut with the Format4 sliding table saw is a masterpiece of precision. For example, when cutting a pyramid, which is one of 18 predefined cutting programs.

Rabbets, grooves, notches, wrong mitre, rafter cut and various geometric shapes, in short videos we show you how it works: Enter workpiece shape and workpiece dimensions on the touch screen, follow the visual cutting plan - done.

*Please note that some of the cutting programmes shown are not possible on machines without double tilt.


The rip fence is positioned by a motor and runs via a dust-free integrated ball spindle in the saw table. The 1/10 mm precision, the high positioning speed, as well as the simultaneous positioning of the crosscut fence, saw blade height and saw blade angle ensure precision and save valuable working time.

  • Optional with the x-motion
  • Standard on the e-motion model
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.

On demand, you can increase user-friendliness and shorten working distances with the ON and OFF buttons directly on the Format sliding table.

The tried and tested "X-Roll" sliding table with linear guide system is now equipped with a stainless steel latch plate which enables the sliding table to be locked in almost any position.

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.

The digital angle and length compensation module "digi-compensation plus" for X-roll or parallelogram outrigger tables compensate any changes in the length difference of the crosscut fence settings, as the angle is changed. The direct communication with the controls, also enables it to compensate the fence position of the crosscut stop to the width of the tooth and the tilt of the saw blade. This ensures that you always get an exact measurement without any recalibration when using different saw blades.
Infinite adjustment range –45 bis +45°. The LED display enables you to set the required angle to one tenth of a degree. Mitre length compensation is done via the vernier scale with the standard fence, with the CNC crosscut fence the length compensation is automatic.

On request, we will equip your Format4 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 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.
The crosscut fence on the outrigger is now even easier to tilt from zero to 45 degrees with the improved locking lever. The large dimensioned, ergonomic clamping lever can be used at every angle.

The outrigger table can be swung out of the way with ease! No more time consuming, complicated assembling and removing of the outrigger table. The outrigger table swing away system ensures extreme ease of use and at the same time can provide you with extra working space when you need it.


The handling of the overhead saw guard is simple and comfortable. The moveable extraction hood can be easily adjusted for pivoting in both directions without having to replace the hood. 


The overhead saw guard can be unlocked with one movement and completely swung away from machine table area. If desired, the overhead saw guard can be unlocked directly via a lever on the hood.

The newly developed overhead saw guard and dust removal system deliver perfect extraction results. The overhead saw guard, with its striking design, runs on linear guides that help to facilitate the height adjustment. The dust and shavings are sucked from the saw guard into the extraction pipe via a short hose. The dust extraction below the table encloses the complete saw unit. The dust channel is the perfect design to provide an optimum air flow and perfect main blade and scoring unit extraction results.
  • Easy clamping of workpieces with maximum flexibility, can be used on all panel saws and spindle moulders that have a sliding table
  • Easy set up due to magnetic fittings
  • Safety cylinder ensures maximum working safety
  • Pressure bar function is possible with every sliding table length
  • Locking height 95 mm
  • Clamping force approx. 300 kg
  • Upon request we can equip your kappa with LED lighting and an integrated tool compartment for 4 saw blades with a diameter of max. 400 mm, 1 saw blade with a diameter of max. 550 mm and 2 splitters.


    Your Format4 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 full surface and magnetic mounted supports on the outrigger table offer an increased support surface and guarantees a safe grip and a stable support for the processing of smaller workpieces.
    For crosscuts between +45° and –45°, the crosscut fence is set with a mitre scale, which is integrated into the sliding table. Quick attachment without tools is made possible by a T-slot and quick coupling on the side of the sliding table. The mitre scale and the magnifying glass on the fence stop, readable from the operating area, allow you to make precise adjustments.
    The ideal accessory for parallel cuts on the sliding table. Use your sliding table and the outrigger together with the rip fence to guarantee an exact workpiece positioning. The rip fence is clamped to the sliding table. The integrated scale from 25 to 1000 mm can be easily read through a lens.

    One of the valuable accessories in daily use on woodworking machines is the patented double mitre gauge from Format4. It enables double mitre cuts on workpieces of different widths at any angle. The input of the workpiece widths A, B and the input of the desired frame angle, is carried out on the integrated computer via the keypad. The resulting settings appear correct to within a tenth of a degree on the display. Just set the double mitre gauge at the calculated value and work away with a result of … pinpoint accuracy! The fence stop on the fence plates can be adjusted up to 1350 mm with the scale. Depending on the set angles, the length compensating vernier scale is available. This feature also enables you to set the exact workpiece length when making mitre cuts.

    At last: quick, comfortable and effortless, removal and installation of your outrigger table with the help of the transport and mounting unit. Another positive aspect: your outrigger can be conveniently stored away!

    The convenient parts list holder with A4 clipboard is mounted on the overhead control panel, keeping your parts lists in sight at all times.
