Stable-compact-precise, the Hammer saw aggregate

The Hammer saw aggregate impresses with smoothness, precision and extreme user friendliness. The large cutting height of 103 mm leaves nothing to be desired. Saw blades with up to 315 mm diameter can be lowered completely below the level of the saw table. The saw blade is simple to access and can be changed with ease.

Saw blade tilt 90°–45°

The blade can be tilted to any position between 90° and 45° and guarantees precise mitre cuts. End stops at the 90° and 45° position ensure the exact positioning of the settings, a large dimensioned scale makes the exact setting and reading of the value easy.

Grooving, slot and tenoning with the saw

Every hammer panel saw can be equipped with a prepartion for the use of specialised dado tooling. The dado tool can be fitted to the saw arbour and makes it possible to make various width grooves, tenons and slots of between 8 and 19.5 mm in width.

Scoring unit for laminated workpieces

The scoring unit ensures chip free cuts in laminated workpieces. The cutting width of the two part scoring blade can be adjusted accurately to the tooth width of the main saw blade using a ring set. The drive of the scoring blade is done mechanically, with it rotating in the opposite direction to the main saw blade.

The Format Sliding Table

The perform models are equipped with a large, heavy-duty format sliding table that will withstand heavier loads. The smooth and precise guiding system guarantees accurate cross, mitre and ­format cuts.

Outrigger table for heavy workpieces

The outrigger table provides additional surface support and precision when processing large dimensioned and heavy workpieces. In combination with a 900 or 1,300 aluminium crosscut fence and the crosscut extension your Hammer with outrigger table becomes a complete, large panel saw.

Index plunger

Angles at 5 degree intervals and at 22.5° may be cut using the index locating pins.

Crosscut fence for precise mitre cuts

Adjustable to any position between +45° and –45°, the crosscut fence ensures precise angled and mitre cuts. A scale integrated into the aluminium sliding table makes it easy to set precisely. The end stop for the 90° position guarantees absolute precision with repeat settings. The scale on the 900 mm long aluminium crosscut fence is angled towards the operator and makes it easy to comfortably read the exact setting. In combination with the crosscut stop with integrated magnifying glass, highly precise settings and as such absolutely exact results are guaranteed.

Rip fence on the saw table

The rip capacity on the saw table is adjustable between 0 and 900 mm. The scale that is integrated into the rail ensures the exact setting of the aluminium rip fence to the position required. The aluminium fence can be positioned at any position along the rip direction - when processing long workpieces you get a better support for the workpiece and high processing precision.

When carrying out angled cuts with a tilted saw blade it is possible to move the fence from the horizontal to the flat position. The narrow fence edge then enables the rip cutting of very thin workpieces.

3 knife quick-change, self-setting cutterblock system, the heart of every Hammer planer

The Hammer 3 knife quick-change, self-setting cutterblock system guarantees excellent planed wood surfaces and simple operating comfort. Since 1987 the cutterblock quick-change system has proven itself a thousand times over and our customers worldwide have saved on expensive additional investment in standard planer cutterblocks.

The advantages of the Silent-POWER® cutterblock at a glance ...

  • Sensationally quiet, noise emissions halved
  • Blade life up to 20 times longer
  • Four highly precise cutting edges on each knife

Solid planer tables for absolute precision

The strong ribbed Hammer planer and thicknesser tables are made from solid cast iron and ensure excellent precision in every situation. The width of the planing table equates to the planing width, which means that workpieces can be planed safely across the full length of the planing table.

Quick and simple: Depth of cut adjustment when planing

The large adjustment handle for the planing depth of cut is integrated perfectly into the machine design. The depth of cut adjustment of up to 4 mm can be carried out quickly, simple and precisely without having to release any locks. That is top class operating comfort.

The planer fence for exact joining and bevelling

The planer fence can be moved and fixed to any position across the width of the table. The planing fence is made of aluminium and can be tilted and fixed at any position between 90°–45°. Fine adjustable end stops ensure an exact 90° and 45° position. The precise workpiece guiding whilst joining and bevelling is helped by the long planing fence.

Dual-lifting planer tables

A space saving solution with optimum ergonomics: Planer tables tilt away from the user operating area, this ensures that working with your Hammer planer is as user-friendly as possible and also requires less workshop space. The simultaneous, dual opening and closing of the planing tables saves time and is extremely comfortable. The planing tables lock automatically at the 0° end position.

Maximum thicknessing height for big requirements

The maximum thicknessing height of 225 mm is a guarantee for the perfect processing of large and heavy workpieces. An even more precise, tenth of a millimetre accurate adjustment of the thicknessing height is possible as an option with a handwheel and integrated digital clock.

Perfect extraction technology - a clean solution

The aerodynamically optimised construction of the dust extraction hood with its ample chip space guarantees an ideal chip extraction and clean working surface.

The horizontal mortiser

The horizontal mortiser is mounted on the planer side.

Stability and operating smoothness - the Hammer spindle moulder unit

High precision with standard moulding work or use of heavy tools - The Hammer spindle moulder unit guarantees extreme smoothness and precision. The spindle diameter is 30 mm. The ergonomically laid out operating elements and the smooth tool change convinces with every application, day after day. Four well spaced, selectable speeds, 3,000/6,000/8,000 and 10,000 rpm, cover the optimum speeds of various different spindle tool diameters with ease. An important detail is standard with Hammer: the forward and reverse run of the spindle for your safety when moulding.

Strong motors - Optimal power transmission

The power transmission of the motor power to the saw arbour or moulder spindle is achieved using large dimensioned Poly-V belts and counter surface. The surface area which is increased through the V shape of the drive belt on the pulley increases the grip and ensures an almost perfect transmission of power from the motor to the saw arbour and moulder spindle.

Spindle

Standard: Moulder spindle Ø 30 mm for standard moulding tools. Ideal for "classic" moulding.

MF spindle system

With just a couple of turns of your hand, the spindle shaft can be swapped with varying diameters, without losing any of the settings.

Spindle fence: simple handling, maximum safety and precision

The Hammer spindle fence is suitable for tools with a diameter up to 220 mm. Both of the anodised aluminium fences can be easily set to the spindle moulder tool diameter being used. The adjustment for the depth of cut when moulding can be made on the outfeed fence plate with a range of –5 mm und +25 mm. The extraction connection diameter for the chip extraction on the fence is 120 mm. As an option, safety bars can be fitted into the aluminium fence for a continuous surface support and offer even more safety when moulding.

Multi fine adjustment system

Professional equipment: “220” spindle fence for max. tooling diameter 220 mm, MULTI adjustment system for spindle fence “220” enabling parallel alignment and quick setup

Safety bar guides

The safety bar guides are great for end-grain work (optional).

As an option: Adapt the table size to the workpiece dimension

Processing long and heavy workpieces without assistance - no problem with a Hammer! The Hammer table extension system has proven itself thousandfold, the world over. In just a few steps and without tools the table extensions can be mounted to every Hammer machine. The surface can be extended by 400 or 800 mm on each side of the working table. Which means that it is possible to increase your table length by up to 1600 mm!

Minimal space requirement - mobile in every workshop

Hammer woodworking machines are an absolute spatial wonder. The efficient machine design of a Hammer means that space can be found in even the smallest of workshops. As an option a rolling carriage can be fitted to every Hammer, offering mobility and freeing up additional space.
