PCS ® safety function on the Kappa 550 E-motion sliding table saw

PCS ® the leading operator safety system, the award-winning PCS ® system, is the next step in innovation for sliding table saws worldwide. Researched and developed by Felder Corporation – USA, the PCS ® safety system is a revolution in safety for the sliding table saw operator. Serious accidents are now a thing of the past – PCS ® activates the preventive contact system, which detects human tissue before it comes into contact with the saw blade. Kappa 550 E-motion sliding table saw with saw blade safely retracts and is ready to use again at the touch of a button.

  • PCS detects accident hazards prior to contact with the saw blade.
  • PCS eliminates dangerous situations in milliseconds.
  • PCS is 100% safe and will not damage the machine and the saw blade.
  • PCS allows safe operation near the saw blade.
  • PCS supports grooving.
  • PCS is ready for reuse at the push of a button.
  • PCS does not require additional cleaning and maintenance cycles.
  • PCS operates without an additional external power source and without the need for external sensors or video systems.
  • PCS is resistant to dirt.

The integrated PCS ® for the Kappa 550 E-motion sliding table saw is a great function that ensures absolute operator safety. The basic line of sliding table saws with strong and safe cutting capabilities is always the preferred choice in each customer’s workshop.

Highlights of the Kappa 550 E-motion chainsaw

Intuitive smarttouch control with modern touch screen: All axes of the machine can be conveniently and intuitively controlled by the central operator with a 15″ touch screen. In-house software with a graphical user interface, a multitude of programs, a USB interface and a ready-made network connection makes work easier and ensures maximum efficiency and productivity. USB interface helps inputing and exporting data prepared for network connection and remote maintenance.

Cutting programs and control panels for maximum needs

Program memory

  • Tools Database (includes Scorer Location for 2-axis scorer and scorer control)
  • General program editing
  • Programs for the respective function
  • Memory of the last five input values
  • Tool database import and export, program memory
  • Remote maintenance via Teamviewer


  • Stop position
  • Motion of axes in steady mode
  • Increment method of shaft
  • Computer
  • Admin function

Cutting program/outrigger board function/cross-cutting fence:

  • Wrong Miter
  • Compound Miter Cut (except for controlled cross-section fences)
  • Processing cutting diagram of cutting optimization software
  • Bevel cutting

Cutting programs/functions associated with controlled railings:

  • Tilt saw
  • Groove
  • Notch

E-motion Plus control extension: On request, the “smarttouch” machine control system can be extended with other programs for geometry functions: angle bar, parallelogram, trapezoid, polygon, stairs, triangle, pyramid, cube, slot / mortise, corner bench

There is a video to guide the cutting program: Each cut with the Format4 sliding table saw is a masterpiece of precision. For example: when cutting a pyramid, this is one of 18 predefined cutting programs.

Grooves, grooves, notches, wrong caps, truss trim and various geometric shapes; in short videos we show you how it works: Enter the workpiece shape and size on the touch screen, follow the intuitive cutting plan – done.

Intelligent control software: Intuitive operation via smart 15″ touch control with capacitive touchscreen in a modern design.

  • Instrument database (includes scorer position with 2-axis scorer and scorer control)
  • Program editing (general)
  • Memory of the last five input values
  • Tool database import and export, program memory
  • Remote maintenance via Teamviewer
  • Parking location (ripping barrier, scorer control)

  • Processing cutting diagram of cutting optimization software
15” touch screen, label printing unit and smart stop

Ardis cutting optimization software: Due to the integration of the Format4 cutting optimization system into the machine and the operating concept, all processing stages can be carried out quickly, efficiently and centrally. No training is required as the user interface is intuitive, clear and easy to use.

MLabel printer for automation production line: Label printers not only allow the workpiece to be accurately labeled, but also allow for streamlined post-processing. This allows programs to be loaded for further processes on CNC and edge banding machines simply by using the barcode scanner. Save valuable production time with label printers and increase your productivity, quality ; and, as a result, profits.

Remote key control: The overhead saw guard can be unlocked with one motion and rotates completely away from the table area. If desired, the overhead saw guard can be unlocked directly via a lever.

X-roll sliding table 10 years warranty by the manufacturer: “A masterpiece of engineering”, ensuring precision and smooth operation! This precise guiding system will accept the maximum load without affecting the movement of the sliding table. The “X” configuration of the bearing optimally distributes the workpiece weight to all sides, with the full width of the bearing in contact with the guide groove. There is no single point of contact between the bearing and the guide rail as found on conventional ball bearing systems, the rolling bearing will never wear the groove into the guide rail. The “X-Roll” system comes with a 10-year factory warranty.
