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.

The kappa 400 x-motion has the option of a scoring unit with 2 controllable axes:

The kappa 400 x-motion has the option of a scoring unit with 2 controllable axes:



  • The vertical and horizontal position of the scoring blade in relation to the main blade can easily be set from the control panel
  • The information relating to the scoring blade can be saved in the tooling database appropriate to the saw blade. The next time the saw blade is required, the scoring blade automatically positions itself appropriate to that saw blade.

  • Safety made visible - Scoring unit operation display

  • 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 blade 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

    “digi-compensation plus” - digital angle/length compensation

    “digi-compensation plus” - digital angle/length compensation



    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.

    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.

    Spraying equipment for the processing of non-ferrous metals and plastics

    Spraying equipment for the processing of non-ferrous metals and plastics



    Your Format-4 can be optionally ­fitted with a spraying unit. High performance lubricating oil can be sprayed directly onto the saw blade, transported via piping from the spraying unit.

    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!
