  • works with single-pass cutting for marble of various lengths and thicknesses, guaranteeing precision and high productivity;
  • its solid structure supports and handle heavy slabs;
  • the supporting surface is comprised of a thick, motorised rubber belt, offering two speeds: a fast one, to approach the required measurement, and a slow one, for precise material positioning;
  • it is fitted with pneumatic clamps, to hold down the slab, synchronised with the cutting phases;
  • it allows the operator to perform made-to-measure cuts thanks to manually adjustable recessed reference marks fitted on the bench;
  • it operates with motor/spindle, with belt transmission, with the possibility of rpm variation based on the material being cut;
  • it is possible to adjust the disc cutting depth on the belt, taking disc wear into account, thanks to the automatic up/down movement of keyboard adjustable spindle carriage;
  • it has an inverter that manages the forward movement of the spindle carriage to adjust the cutting speed;
  • in the final phase, the spindle carriage slows down to facilitate the cutting process;
  • it includes quick spindle carriage return, reducing processing times;
  • the on-board PLC controls the various processing phases, offering the operator a broad choice of processing cycles;
  • it features a touch screen for man-machine interfacing, to: set the cutting cycles, control processing progress in real time, check parts operation and quantity of cut material.

Made-to-measure cuts with joystick

The operator brings the material up to the disc for the first cut, and performs cross cutting. The cross cutter allows the operator to perform made-to-measure cuts or cutting at set lengths. The lengths can be set using the alphanumeric keypad or the keys of the simplified “intuitive” system.

Sequential automatic made-to-measure cutting

The operator assigns the lengths to the buttons (max 6) and can also set one of the following sequences: cutting sequence with different measurements; cutting sequence with a single repeated measurement or several repeated measurements. The cutting sequences can be combined with several widths of the material, and entered in a database that the operator can then use.
