Granite Cutting Machines

Robo SawJet

Stone products are used in a range of residential and commercial applications. Cutting through granite, marble and other materials requires precision, while producing large quantities of stone countertop and other products requires manufacturing speed. A granite cutting machine offers the balance of precision and speed your facility needs.

Explore the features of BACA Systems granite saw machines to see how you can manufacture innovative components quickly and affordably. All four machines are fully automated to speed up the manufacturing process and eliminate errors in production.

Robolution Pro

Manufacturing stone countertops is easy with the Robolution pro. This innovative machine uses a powerful waterjet, saw and maneuverable arm to create complex miter cuts and detailed trim pieces.

Here are the of the advantages of choosing a Robolution Pro for your granite cutting machine:

  • Inside miter corner capabilities
  • Adaptive cutting technology
  • Power variable frequency drive and saw
  • Cuts up to 80 inches per second
  • Competitive maintenance scheduling
Robolution Pro

Inside miter cuts are possible thanks to the adaptive movement of both the saw and waterjet. A 26 horsepower saw and 60,000 PSI waterjet aren’t connected to a gantry system, but are fully automated on a robotic arm. This allows for fast, precise cuts.

Miter joints must be cut with extreme precision to avoid noticeable glue joints. Corners, backsplash panels and other features of custom countertops often come with noticeable glue joints, which reduces the quality of the final product. A flawless miter cut avoids downstream refining before the final glue process.

The Robolution Pro doesn’t have any whip lines or swivels, and the coils are easy to replace in just minutes. Every high-pressure line is accessible for routine maintenance and emergency repairs.

Compare the maintenance routine of the Robolution Pro with other automated stone cutting machines to see how you can cut down on repair tasks. The first recommended oil change is only after 10,000 hours or 5 years of operation. Reduced maintenance extends the lifetime of your machine and reduces downtime as you cut elegant countertops and other stone products.

Robo SawJet

Learn more about the robotic sawjet that started it all. The Robo SawJet was the first robotic model produced by BACA Systems, and it continues to deliver reliable operations and superior cutting flexibility.
