Altendorf at AWISA 2016


After 2 years in the making, the 2016 AWISA show has come and drawn to a close in what seems like a blink of an eye. Located for the first time in Melbourne since almost 20 years ago, the show was a success with greatly higher number of visitors than the previous show.

At the heart of the panels section of the show was the Altendorf stand, showcasing various technologies contributing to superior cutting performance. Making an appearance are the new generation of F45 panel saws, these machines revolve around offering businesses the ability to choose what they need. It was a strategic decision with the new line of F45’s, to deliver the best of Altendorf targeted to the exact needs of the user.

Altendorf’s Panel saw range does not stop there however. The saws on display also featured the classic WA8 all the way down to the Start45, an incredibly value oriented machine for the entry market. Whether you’re an individual just starting out in the industry or a well-established joinery or cabinet making shop, there’s a machine for every business.

If you missed the show or would like to find out more in-depth information on the full range of Altendorf’s offerings, please visit the showroom or contact Altendorf Asia Pacific on 1800 558 258.

More flexible and efficient than ever: the Altendorf F 45 ELMO III D.


When nothing but the best will do, the obvious starting point in sliding table saw technology is the F 45 ELMO. And thanks to Altendorf, the best just got even better: the F 45 ELMO III D includes a saw unit that can be tilted to 46° in either direction for even greater flexibility when cutting straightforward bevels and compound mitres.

The fact that the saw blade tilts towards the workpiece brings improved ergonomics too, as heavy workpieces can be processed without awkward manipulation. Workpieces with delicate surfaces can be processed with the good side uppermost for even cleaner cutting.

Not everything has changed though: motorised axes automatically position the sawblade height, the cutting angle and the rip fence dimension after the values are keyed into the 12" touch screen and the start button is pressed, in true Altendorf F 45 ELMO III style.

If you would like to find out more in-depth information on the operation of the new saw, please contact Altendorf Asia Pacific on 1800 558 258.

Troy Notman is that lucky winner and attended the Sydney show on Friday 17th July. The tour aptly kicks off in Minden Germany, home to Altendorf Head Quarters since 1919 when Wilhelm Altendorf first relocated from Berlin. The tour will then take Troy and guest to Munich, Vienna Austria and finally picturesque Venice Italy.

The celebrations kicked off in Melbourne, moved to Brisbane and finally Sydney. Altendorf Open House 2010 proved to be a sucess featuring the latest in European technology and promoted Altendorf’s quality line of Panel Saws, Edgebanders, Beamsaws as well as the latest and greatest in CNC technology. The MasterClass software demonstrations featuring Spazio3D CAD CAM software were popular with visitors and were held periodically during the course of the day at all events.
A unique piece of Altendorf history was also presented to visitors. The first was a 1959 WA80 which at the time was the world’s first Aluminium sliding table. Also on display was a 1935 WA8 which had been in continous use for 75 years in a workshop until 2009 when it was traded in (still working!) for a new Altendorf panel saw.



This year Altendorf Asia Pacific celebrates 10,000 machines into Australia, a monumental milestone we are celebrating by opening our doors nationwide and giving away a European Tour for two.

To validate your entry, simply visit any event held in Sydney, Melbourne or Brisbane on the dates specified.

We will be demonstrating the latest in panel processing technology and based on popular demand, will be conducting Software integration workshops.



Altendorf Asia Pacific enjoyed its first time as an exhibitor at the Design Ex 2010 Exhibition held at Darling Harbour, Sydney. Altendorf’s recent expansion into Cad-Cam software means that Design Ex becomes a valuable forum to meet interested customers. The Altendorf Softlink Team came together to provide demonstrations of their Spazio3D software to attendees. The Spazio3D software is a design software that can stand alone or be integrated to manufacturing with the addition of modules. ‘Designers and Architects I spoke to at the exhibition were enthusiastic about the powerful design capabilities of the software,’ said Product Manager, Ernie Brillantes. ‘I have worked with many software products over the years and Spazio3D really is in a league of its own.’

The Spazio3D software is expandable to include complete manufacturing functionality. The Altendorf Softlink Team is available to provide live demonstrations and talk about your business needs.
