Serious accidents on the sliding table panel saws are a thing of the past - successful woodworking in safe hands with PCS®.

Prevent accidents at the speed of light.
When the risk of an accident is detected, PCS® triggers the lowering of the saw blade under the saw table at the speed of light. The functionality, based on the electro-magnetic law of repulsion, allows for an extremely short response time of a few milliseconds.

Surveillance of danger zone with approach detection.
Upon detection of an unexpected, fast approach within the saw blade area, PCS® triggers the safety mechanism, lowering the blade. The safety environment surrounds the saw blade and protects against access from all directions.

Absolutely damage free, immediately ready for use.
The PCS® safety lowering mechanism works damage free and at no extra cost. The sliding table panel saw is immediately ready to use again at the push of a button. PCS® works without consumable parts and therefore completely adjustment and maintenance free.

    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 tool information that has been saved in regards to the tool diameter and width of the teeth. Any changes to these standard scoring settings can be saved and retrieved when using the same tool in the future.

    You now no longer need to remove the scoring unit when using large diameter saw blades. At the touch of a button the new Format4 will park the scoring blade, 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)
    Fast, uncomplicated and totally without tools: Changing the saw blade on the new Format-4 machine is incredibly simple simply incredible! The patented power transfer system ensures that the required pressure on the flange is applied. A clamping lever is used for the tool free clamping of the riving knife. Maximum operating safety and maximum productivity are guaranteed with Format-4.

    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.

    10.4" TFT screen CNC-control panel

    Due to the integration of the Format4 cutting optimization system into the machine and operating concept, all phases of processing can be carried out quickly, efficiently and centrally. No training is necessary as the user interface is intuitive, clear and easy to use.

    Not only does the label printer enable the workpieces to be labeled correctly, it also enables a logical post-processing. This makes it possible to load programs for subsequent processes on the CNC and edgebanders simply by using the bar code scanner. Save valuable production time with the label printer and increase productivity, quality and as a result, your profit.
    When processing work pieces after they have been cut using an edgebander or CNC machine, the labels with bar code will help to increase the efficiency of your production

    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”, guarantees precision and smooth operation! This precision guiding system will accept maximum loads without compromising the smooth and accurate movement of the sliding table. The “X” configuration of the roller bearings optimally distributes work-piece weight to all sides, with the full width of the bearing 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 warranty.
    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.
    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 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.

    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°. With the LED display you can set your required angle accurate to a tenth of a degree. With the e-motion models this is integrated into the TFT screen. Miter length compensation is done via the vernier scale with the standard fence, with the CNC crosscut fence the length compensation is automatic.
    No reading errors due to the vernier scale. No more time wasted due to ­arduous approximations of angle values. The advantage of the Felder degree index is that the stop is set and fixed with-out losing time or ­making reading errors. Highly precise index positions allow for the accurate ­production of polygons like 5.625º (32 sided), 11.25º (16 sided) and 22.5º (8 sided). In addition, index positions at 15º, 20º, 25º, 30º, 35º, 40º and 45º can be used when working with the fence in both the fore and aft positions on the outrigger. Every index position is equipped with a length compensator and individual fine adjustment. This highly precise Felder degree index system is adjusted at the factory. This cost effective index system integrates well into the machine design and will increase your productivity.

    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 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.
    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. You no longer have to worry about the hassle of mounting and dismounting the outrigger table. The swing away system of the outrigger table ensures extreme ease of use and at the same time can provide you with extra working space when you need it.


    The e-motion models can be equipped with the CNC controlled crosscut fence. The controlled crosscut fence can be used on both sides of the outrigger and is equipped with two fence stops. The maximum adjustable length measures 3400 mm. The extendable component can be removed to save space. The length compensation takes place automatically depending on the set angle.

    • Electronic crosscut fence with 2 crosscut stops and extendable to a maximum of 3400 mm
    • automatic angle/length compensation

    The FORMAT4 overhead saw guard is integrated nicely into the machine design. It is easy and convenient to use. With only a flick of the wrist the saw guard can be moved and tilted completely away from the machine area. The dust extraction hood adjusts itself automatically to the work piece height and always provides optimal working safety and dust extraction performance.

    The maintenance free linear laser is mounted to the overhead saw guard and can be adjusted to any position. The easily visible cutting marker makes it easier to trim or cut along cracked wood.
    If desired, the kappa 550 can be equipped with a remote lock release.
    The newly developed overhead saw guard and dust removal system deliver perfect extraction results. The overhead saw guard, with its striking design, is on linear guides making it very easy to adjust the height. 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 from an exctraction point of view perfectly designed, providing 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
  • Magnetic fitting makes it easy to install and adjust
  • Safety cylinder ensures maximum work safety
  • Pressure bar function possible with every sliding table length
  • Locking height 95 mm
  • Clamp. force approx. 300 kg
  • 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!
    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 the miter-scale that’s integrated into the saw sliding table. Quick attachment without tools is made possible by a T-slot and quick coupling on the side of the saw sliding table. The miter scale and the magnifying glass on the fence-stop, readable from the operating area, allow you to make precise adjustments up to 43/80 inches.
    The ideal accessory for parallel cuts on the sliding table! Take advantage of your sliding table and the outrigger together with the rip fence which guarantee the exact positioning of your workpiece. The rip fence is clamped to the sliding table. The integrated scale from 25 to 1000 mm is easily read through the lens.

    One of the valuable accessories in daily use on woodworking machines is the patented double mitre gauge from Format4. It enables double miter cuts on workpieces of different widths at any angle. The input of the of the workpiece widths A, B and the input of the desired frame angle, is carried out on the integrated computer via the keypad. Das Einstell­ergebnis erscheint zehntelgrad­genau am Display. Just set the double miter gauge at the calculated value and work away with results of … pinpoint accuracy! The fence stop on the fence plates can be adjusted up to 53 inches with the scale. Depending on set angles, the length compensating vernier scale is available. With this you can also set the exact workpiece length when angle cutting.

    At last: Quickly, comfortably and without any effort, you can now remove or install your outrigger table with the help of the transport and mounting unit. The outrigger with the crosscut fence attached is now conveniently stored away!
