Industry Panel Saws

Panel Saw kappa automatic 100 Anniversary Model

Scope of application

The Special Edition Model to mark the 70th anniversary of Otto Mayer Maschinenfabrik, a Felder Group brand since 2019. 

The two long-established companies celebrate with an anniversary edition of the successful kappa automatic beam saw. The joint know-how, the consolidation of all synergies and the shared values of the two mechanical engineering companies have made this common path so successful over many years.

In the production facilities in Hall in Tyrol and Lossburg-Lombach, the joint anniversary model with its unique additional equipment has now been created:

► 13.5 kW motor
► Scoring unit positioning control, accurate to a hundredth of a millimetre via touch screen
 Additional double-finger package clamp
► Thermal label printer directly on the machine
► Ready for network connection

The largest pressure beam saw and panel beam saw in the kappa automatic range meets the requirements of the most important factors of modern production thanks to both its structure and its standard equipment.

  • The automatic cutting height adjustment for an optimal saw blade entry angle and perfectly smooth saw trolley movement ensure a high-end cutting edge finish.
  • The dual measuring system guarantees maximum repeatability.
  • The pressure bar opens in relation to the height of the material, reducing the time required to move the material and hence ensuring maximum productivity and the shortest cutting cycles.
  • An ever increasing factor in production are the energy costs. Our "Green Line package" with its controlled extraction gates and direct control of the motors can reduce energy consumption by up to 30%.
  • One of the lowest operating noise levels, helps the environment and protects the health of the operator.
  • Pneumatically controlled, solid steel clamps ensure secure and damage-free clamping of panel stacks (90 mm opening height ) and individual small panel materials.

MAYER. Technically perfect, precise and durable

The Otto Mayer machine factory has been producing panel-sizing and pressure beam saws for processing panel materials made of wood, plastics, non-ferrous metals and basic materials since 1950. The many years of experience guarantee quality and reliability at the highest level.

The constant speed of the saw carriage is variable and can be set between 5–100 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.

A main and scoring saw blade guarantee perfect and chip free cutting results with a cutting height of 77/100/118/139 mm. Combined with the cutting direction against the fence, a first class high end cutting result is achieved.


The controlled kappa automatic pressure bar does not open completely whilst processing, but instead only by the height of the material, enabling quick production cycles with maximum efficiency.

The modular cutting optimisation software uses the material list to calculate the most economic cutting process taking the cutting times and amount of waste into consideration. Compatible with the majority of construction and design programs it is also possible to calculate the amount of material and length of edge required, cutting times and/or be connected to a warehousing system with material administration. 
With the lifting table/panel warehousing system attached to the rear of the machine, it makes it possible to load the saw, panel by panel. The panels required can be loaded directly from the stack of panels onto the saw.  
The automatic pressure device guarantees that the workpieces lie precisely against the mitre fence when cross-cutting (workpiece width 50–1200 mm).
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. Connecting the machine control to existing systems or networks is of course possible. The kappa automatic can be equipped with Ardis cutting optimisation software. As an option, it can also be equipped with a label printer. 
The material positioning unit is equipped with two measuring systems that constantly monitor each other. The combination of a highly precise servomotor and solid material grips ensure maximum repeatability. The measuring system is separate to the drive system and is completely free from wear and tear.
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).

Solid steel clamps, pneumatically controlled, guarantee a safe and damage-free clamping of panel stacks (opening height 90/105/130 mm) and individual small panels.

The roller track supports the material pusher transport of panels and guarantees a precise feed of the panel material to the cutting line.
Unloading tables with air cushion technology guarantee a smooth handling of the material and a constant production flow especially when processing stacks of panels. Wheel conveyors situated near the material pusher ensure a gentle positioning of the material. For particularly pressure sensitive material the clamping pressure of the clamps can be adjusted using a manometer.
Pneumatic veneer fences are available for panel cuts of veneered panel materials with a veneer projecting edge or laminated panels.
The polished machine table is particularly advantageous when processing sensitive materials and also offers an unlimited useable life.

The greenLine Package available for the kappa automatic models reduces the extraction volume required by up to 30% through a controlled extraction gate on the pressure bar. Additionally the motors use up to 30% less energy due to the reduced travel time after the cut. With a certified noise emission of only 73.5 dB the kappa automatic is one of the quietest beam saws in its class.
