Cutting miters with the saw blade and the waterjet, the M Series can handle everything from inside corner miters to complex arcs efficiently, while nesting pieces to save material and dramatically reduce downstream labor costs.
Cutting miters with the saw blade and the waterjet, M Series can handle everything from inside corner miters to complex arcs efficiently, while nesting pieces to save material and dramatically reduce downstream labor costs.
The powerful 26-HP VFD-driven saw and 60k PSI waterjet can cut quartzite, ultra-compact slabs, and porcelains with ease. The system can even handle variations in material thickness or warpage with BACA Systems’ adaptive cutting technology to produce perfect miter joints.
The M Series can be upgraded to add a second cutting table in the future, optimizing your investment, as your business grows.
The M Series performs miter cuts with both the saw blade and the waterjet, allowing the system to cut inside miter corners with ease. With simple, accurate calibration between the saw blade and the waterjet, miter cuts can be accurately transitioned between blade and waterjet, dramatically reducing downstream labor and manual finishing. The M Series also compensates for variations in material thickness and warpage with BACA Systems' adaptive cutting technology, to produce perfect miter joints with tight glue lines.
The M Series utilizes the accurate and rigid KUKA KR 210 robot, which requires no daily maintenance, maximizing production uptime for the system. The first scheduled maintenance for the robot is a simple oil change after 5 years or 10,000 hours of operation. Compared with gantry sawjet solutions that need lubrication and maintenance weekly, M Series users have far less downtime and cost to maintain their equipment. With over 600 robotic cutting systems in service, BACA Systems has a proven track record of providing reliable, easy to use cutting solutions that require minimal maintenance.

Equipped with a powerful 26-HP saw and standard variable frequency drive (VFD), the M Series excels at processing materials such as quartzite, ultra-compact slabs, and porcelains. The VFD provides the ability to control the RPM of the saw blade, allowing cut parameters to be optimized for each material type that is processed. The M Series utilizes the reliable, low-cost H2O Jet waterjet, cutting at 60k PSI, to provide a superior waterjet stream for sharp, clean cuts. For fabricators that need extra cutting speed, the system is available with an optional 90k PSI pump, allowing waterjet cuts to be processed twice as fast.
Adding an M Series to your fabrication process is the #1 way to increase profitability by reducing material cost by 10% to 15% through maximizing slab yield. In addition, M Series reduces the amount of downstream processing by reducing up to 4 hours of work on every slab completing all arc cuts, radius cuts, sink openings and faucet holes during the sawing process thereby reducing up to 4 hours of work on every slab. With an average cut time between 15-20 minutes per slab, you can let the saw complete 90% of your work.
M Series features a robotic motion system with gears and bearings that are completely sealed and designed to perform in extremely harsh environments. Gantry-based rack-and-pinion based sawjets utilize ball screws, rack and pinion gears, and bearings that are regularly exposed to silica dust, garnet, water, and other contaminants. Way covers on gantry-based sawjets aren’t sealed and can’t protect these components from wear and degradation due to exposure to the stone shop environment. As a result, these components are constantly wearing, and the tolerances of the equipment become less precise over time. In addition, it’s not a question of IF the gantry-based components will fail, but WHEN they will fail, resulting in unplanned downtime, lost production and revenue, and expensive repair costs to replace the failed parts. M Series customers don’t face these issues, as all drives are completely sealed, and precision is consistent from day one.
Investing in a single-table system allows fabricators to immediately start saving on material by allowing pieces to be nested closely together, and reduce downstream labor by performing more cuts in the sawing station. The M Series can be upgraded to add a second cutting table in the future, doubling production by allowing loading and unloading in one station while the robot is cutting in the opposite station. This allows the system to be cutting constantly, producing more countertops on the system each hour. Since gantry-based solutions cannot be upgraded, the only way to increase their production is to purchase another machine. M Series customers who add a second table dramatically reduce the capital equipment investment as compared to purchasing a second gantry machine.
The M Series is the fastest, most capable precision cutting system in the industry. Cutting miters with the saw blade and the waterjet, it can handle everything from inside corner miters to complex arcs efficiently, while nesting pieces to save material, and dramatically reduce downstream labor costs.
The powerful 26-HP VFD-driven saw and 60k PSI waterjet can cut quartzite, ultra-compact slabs, and porcelains with ease. The system can even handle variations in material thickness or warpage, with BACA Systems’ adaptive cutting technology, to produce perfect miter joints.
With the largest cutting table in the industry, the M Series can be upgraded to add a second cutting table in the future, optimizing your investment, as your business grows.
