As durable and effective as nature itself: Sliding table saws by MARTIN.

If you want to work with wood, you must learn to love it. You need to love its versatility and warmth and be captivated by the varied applications of this original material. We have designed specific sliding table saws for people like you; not only do these facilitate your work as much as possible – they also yield perfect results.

The sliding table saw – a must in every workshop.
A sliding table saw has a very central position in medium-sized workshops and industrial enterprises. It is still one of the most important if not THE most important standard machine in every carpenter’s / joiner’s workshop. Because of the constant technical development like the dual tilting saw blade (invented by MARTIN in 2006) and the saw’s unbeatable flexibility make it an all-purpose machine for every workshop.
MARTIN sliding table saws convince by their sturdiness, sophisticated technology and excellent economic value. It is taken for granted in the industry that a MARTIN stands for maximum precision and productivity. This has been made possible by modern control concepts, high quality engineering and practical details.
A MARTIN sliding table saw can be perfectly adapted to the requirements of every workshop. Whether you are looking for a scoring saw unit, a certain cutting width, or a special cutting length – you will find what you need at MARTIN!
Here you will, for example, always find a rip fence with a scale. Because with our motorized rip fence manual adjustment also becomes time saving child’s play. In the outermost position, the fence can simply be lowered and, as an option, this can also be done from the operating position. Nevertheless you can also opt for fence adjustment by hand wheel. This unique solution you can only get from MARTIN.
One of the special features of the MARTIN sliding table is its hardened steel guideways. This principle was implemented on our sliding table saws in 1959 has steadily been optimized. The unbeatable technical advantage of this system is the smooth and precision guidance of the table. It is a testament to MARTIN’s quality that the hardened steel guide strips are permanently lubricated in oil. The hardened guide strips are cleaned every time the operator strokes the table which is the only way to make sure, that the surfaces are unaffected by dust and chips. Another important quality feature is that MARTIN generally does not use any plastic parts in the construction of this component which is so important for the cutting quality and overall life of the machine. The table lip that is bolted to the main sliding table extrusion – unique for saws and only available here at MARTIN – makes it easy to repair damage caused by large diameter deflected saw blades. The table can be locked down every 20 mm along the length of the machine and this way the table can be fixed in exactly the positon that is best for the work at hand – irrespective of whether you want to work with jigs or position a workpiece.
The cutting height of our saws varies from 130 to 204 mm depending on the diameter of the saw blade and the model.  Depending on the model, the saw blade can be tilted by up to 46° to the right or to both directions by up to 46°. This way you are perfectly flexible right from the start.
A central function of a sliding table saw is the trimming of workpieces. But those woodworkers who have intensively studied the possibilities of this machine will find that in addition also rabbets, grooves, mitre cuts, compound mitres, mortising and tenoning operations, incremental cuts and much more can be performed on this saw. For all these operations you have very powerful tools at hand today that intuitively guide you through the work process. This merely requires the operator to know which tool he must use for the task at hand. When the operator has made his choice the electronic aids play out their strengths to the full. The productivity rises and the error rate drops.
Another important aspect that has become increasingly important in the past decades is industrial safety. Thanks to the numerous innovation, options and accessories the sliding table saw has developed to become a comparatively safe machine. Cutting height and angle are automatically referenced to the fence, blade guards are controlled and dust emission is reduced to a hardly measurable minimum. Workpieces are held in place by a number of clever clamping devices in order to minimize the danger of moving pieces. To respond as best as possible to the high cost pressure, companies these days pay special attention to an optimal exchange between work preparation and machine. Here interface functions to the common industry-specific optimisation programmes achieve the best results.
Those who think that with a sliding table saw you can only machine wood or wooden composites have another thing coming. A sliding table saw undoubtedly is a classic among woodworking machinery but it has long since also conquered the world of aluminium and plastic machining. Both materials can be perfectly cut with a modern sliding table saw assuming you have the right equipment and suitable accessories. Even special materials like carbon-fibre composites (CFC) can be cut with a perfectly equipped machine.
All these aspects considered, it soon becomes clear that in a workshop that is up-to-date a productive all-round machine – a modern sliding table saw – should not be missing.
