The kappa 400 has dado capability. Used with the massive specially designed Format4 dado cutter head clean, precise dado cuts from 1/4”–3/4” (6–20 mm) are guaranteed.

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 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.

The rip fence is positioned by a motor and runs via a dust-free integrated ball spindle in the saw table. With an accuracy of .004” (.1 mm), the rapid and simultaneous positioning of the rip fence, saw blade height and cutting angle ensure precision, increased productivity and higher profits.
  • Automatic measurement correction when the rip fence is horizontal
  • Rip fence park position
  • No collision possible with the saw blade due to the coordination of the tool database by the positioning control
  • The rip fence can be swung away at any point across the full rip capacity
  • The integrated guide rollers of the outrigger table ensure an incredibly smooth operation upon maximum load capacity. The bearing rail is moved along a “X-Roll” guide and is fast and micro-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” makes a difference:
  • Extremely smooth and precise sliding action! With the roller-bearing system there is no single point of contact between bearings and guiding track, maximizing precision over the lifetime of the machine.
  • Clean, dust-free guide rails obtained by special wipers and brushes.
  • Smooth movement of the sliding table ensured by hardened steel, ground-bearing tracks.
  • 10-year-warranty
  • The new and solidly built parallelogram outrigger table enables infinitely variable miter cuts from -45° up 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 due to 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 126”. The easy to read scale along with the magnifier on the fence stop ensure precise settings and adjustments for repeatable and accurate cutting.

    On request, we’ll equip your Format4 with the digital telescopic fence. Below, you see the cleverly integrated electronic digital scale with values correct to 4/1000” (0.1 mm). Additional functions, for example the setting of successive measurements, make your daily working life easier.

    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!

    For the processing of non-ferrous ­metals, your Format4 can be ­fitted with spraying equipment. This enables high performance lubricating oil to be sprayed directly onto the sawblade.

  • The vertical and horizontal position of the scoring blade in relation to the main blade can easily be set from the control panel
  • The scoring blade setting information can be stored in the tooling database for the main sawblade used. When the same main sawblade is used again the scoring blade will reposition itself for that particular blade.

  • Position control of the saw blade height
  • Position control of the saw blade angle
  • Automatic cutting depth compensation when tilting
  • Saw speed display
  • Control for variable saw blade speed (Option)
  • Positioning control of the rip fence with automatic measurement correction when the saw blade is tilted (Option)
  • All possible functions also available in touch control mode
  • 99 storage locations in the tool database
  • 9x 99 storage locations for cut programs
  • Program with stored functions (grooves, row of grooves, rabbets, wrong miter, mitered cuts, calculator)
  • 1406-kappa-x-motion-standard.png
    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.

    kappa 400

    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 are clearly and exactly readable from the operating area. Additional functions such as the input of successive measurements make your daily working life easier. Further highlights:

    • Bright, easy to read LED display
    • No batteries are required due to a direct connection to the machine's power supply
    • Automatic recognition of vertical or horizontal fence position
    • Measurement compensation of the saw blade tooth width
