Sliding Table Panel Saw

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.

To use a grooving cutter “Dado cutter”

To use a grooving cutter “Dado cutter”



Slot cutting is possible with Format-4 panel saws. The use of adjustable dado tools, specifically developed by Format-4, can be used thanks to the removable circular saw flange and the table insert.

Scoring unit

Scoring unit



There are two versions available for the operation of the scoring unit: Classic or Automatic. Classic: the height and lateral setting of the scoring blade is adjusted manually from the top of the saw unit table. Automatic: scoring saw blade height adjustment is electrical, and the side adjustment is manual. When the scoring unit is switched on, the scoring blade rises to its pre-set position automatically. When the main blade is switched off, the scoring blade automatically sinks back under the table. First class comfort!

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

"Easy-Lock" tool free saw blade change

"Easy-Lock" tool free saw blade change



The clamping system is maintenance free and offers premium comfort for many years: Change saw blades effortlessly in literally no time at all.

Simple, safe & quick - "Quick-lock" saw blade clamping

Simple, safe & quick - "Quick-lock" saw blade clamping



An alternative to the worldwide unique Format-4 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.

Positioning control of the rip fence

Positioning control of the rip fence



The rip fence is positioned by a motor and runs via a dust-free integrated ball spindle in the saw table. Fence positioning is accurate to 0.1 mm, this combined with fast positioning speed and that the saw blade height and tilt can be adjusted simultaneously, ensures precision and significant reduction in working time.

  • Automatic measurement correction when the rip fence is laid flat
  • 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 along the full rip capacity

  • “X-Roll” outrigger table

    “X-Roll” outrigger table



    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.

    Main operating switches on sliding table

    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” sliding table, 10 year guarantee

    “X-Roll” sliding table, 10 year guarantee



    “X-Roll”, making 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, maximising precision over the lifetime of the machine. A 3 way dust protection system ensures clean, dust free guide rails. This is obtained through silicon wipers, brushes and concave tracks. Your X-Roll sliding table guidance system is backed by a 10 year factory guarantee.
    • Clean, dust-free gui­de rails thanks to special silicon wipers.
    • Hardened-steel tracks ensure accuracy and durability.
    • 10 year guarantee

    Parallelogram outrigger table

    Parallelogram outrigger table



    The solidly built parallelogram outrigger table enables mitre cuts from –45° 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”.

    Angle adjustment and fence length compensation:

    Angle adjustment and fence length compensation:



    No reading errors due to scales and vernier. No time-wasting with 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.

    Outrigger table

    Outrigger table



    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.

    Telescopic crosscut fence

    Telescopic crosscut fence



    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.

    Digital accuracy

    Digital accuracy



    On request, we will equip your Format-4 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.

    Electronic digital display can be read from every position.

    Electronic digital display can be read from every position.



    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 can be clearly seen and read from the operating area. Additional functions such as the input of incremental measurements make your daily working life easier. Further highlights:

  • Brightly illuminated red LED display facilitates the reading of values
  • No batteries are required as it is directly connected to the machine’s power supply
  • Recognises automatically whether the fence is in the vertical or horizontal position
  • Measurement compensation of the saw blade tooth width

  • Swing away overhead saw guard

    Swing away overhead saw guard



    The overhead saw guard is height adjustable and can be swung away. The average depth for especially wide work-pieces is 608 mm.

    Always at hand - Additional storage options in the front tool compartment

    Always at hand - Additional storage options in the front tool compartment



    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!
