The  highlight of the Format4 innovation forge: The new double-pivot circular saw unit. Pivoting in both directions (+/- 46) allows a completely new dimension in working with the panel saw:

  • Mitre cuts of frame parts with continuously overhead visible side
  • Complex compound cuts 
  • Grooves in a miter
  • and many more.
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)

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.


Every cut with the Format4 sliding table saw is a masterpiece of precision. For example, when cutting a pyramid, which is one of 18 predefined cutting programs.

Rabbets, grooves, notches, wrong mitre, rafter cut and various geometric shapes, in short videos we show you how it works: Enter workpiece shape and workpiece dimensions on the touch screen, follow the visual cutting plan - done.

*Please note that some of the cutting programmes shown are not possible on machines without double tilt.


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.

On demand, you can increase user-friendliness and shorten working distances with the ON and OFF buttons directly on the Format sliding table.

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.

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 handling of the overhead saw guard is simple and comfortable. The moveable extraction hood can be easily adjusted for pivoting in both directions without having to replace the hood. 


The overhead saw guard can be unlocked with one movement and completely swung away from machine table area. If desired, the overhead saw guard can be unlocked directly via a lever on the hood.

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
  • Upon request we can equip your kappa with LED lighting and an integrated tool compartment for 4 saw blades with a diameter of max. 400 mm, 1 saw blade with a diameter of max. 550 mm and 2 splitters.


    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 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!

    The convenient parts list holder with A4 clipboard is mounted on the overhead control panel, keeping your parts lists in sight at all times.
