Stone Polishing Machine

Stone Polishing Machine

Before the development of computer numerical control, which automated much of the stone-cutting process, fabricating a stone countertop could take many weeks and a lot of hands-on effort. The advent of CNC allowed the programming of specifications so that the machine operator rarely had to intervene, or even be present during most of the processing — but the large pieces of heavy stone still had to be moved from the router to the stone polishing machine.

Our specially designed Edge XL and Sink Pro+ products are router, edger and stone polishing machines all in one, saving you time and effort as well as streamlining your stone fabrication process. These efficiencies can have a significant impact on your bottom line.

Designing the Ultimate Countertop

It all starts with the slab. Before the fabrication process can begin, granite is carefully selected and a layout that highlights the finest and most beautifully patterned parts of the stone is designed. Since this countertop is likely to be the focal point of your customer’s kitchen, great care should be taken to utilize the best aspects of the slab.

Once the countertop’s design template is set, the stone is moved to the CNC routing machine to be cut, edged, polished and finished with laser-focused precision — and all in one location.

Programming Our CNC Router, Edger and Stone Polishing Machines

Our PC-based CNC technology is easy to program. However, if you prefer, you can import a CAD drawing that includes all the specifications necessary to complete the project into the system and begin production that way.

The water-equipped spindle on our routers keeps the cutting tool cool throughout the process of removing the necessary pieces from the interior of the countertop and carving the edges. Our machines cut and polish the finished edges at the same time, without needing to move the stone to a separate piece of equipment for polishing.

Our machines can cut the edges of the stone to your client’s specifications, using a variety of standard options:

Stone CNC Machine
  • Square
  • Mitered
  • Bullnose
  • Demi-bullnose
  • Beveled
  • Eased

We also offer several specialty classical edges, including:

  • Dupont
  • French Cove
  • Ogee

Utilizing the Features of BACA Systems’ Edge XL

Our Edge XL router, edger and stone polishing machine has many special features and benefits:

  • Industry-leading technology that streamlines the process and saves time
  • 3-axis, high-rail gantry stone milling
  • Stress-relieved structural members
  • Precision ground or machined components
  • Laser-aligned axes for accuracy
  • PC-based control center with a high-resolution, 21-inch color monitor
  • 60-position tool rack

These features allow for ease of use and a variety of customization options. The Edge XL also includes several user-safety features such as doors that prevent entry into the work area when the machine is in use.

Using BACA Systems’ Sink Pro+

Like our Edge XL, the Sink Pro+ is a 3 axis CNC router, edger and stone polishing machine that is flexible and easy to program. Some of the Sink Pro+’s unique features include:

  • 24 tool-change locations for flexible tooling
  • Easy tool access
  • Ability to hold multiple tool profiles

As with the Edge XL, water is connected to the spindle for cooling during the cutting and edging processes. Both of these machines offer pioneering technology, efficient processing and ease of use. They can reduce your fabrication time, and as a result, increase your shop’s production and profitability.

There’s a reason why our machines are consistently among the most popular at the annual Coverings Conference in Florida and customers can’t wait to see our latest innovations. Our stone CNC machine technology yields state-of-the-art equipment for stone fabrication. With our unique core bit and water-cooling system, these machines are excellent for fabricating an endless variety of countertop stones.

5 Axis CNC Router

5 Axis CNC Router

At BACA Systems, we create state-of-the-art equipment to handle a wide range of custom stone solutions. Our team of professionals can help you upgrade your custom stone fabrication facility with the precision of a 5 axis CNC router. 

Explore the features and benefits of one of our CNC routers and see how you can provide custom-fit pieces to your customers at reduced costs and lead times.

What is a 5 Axis CNC Router?

A 5 axis CNC router is an industrial cutting tool that handles stone, wood, steel, plastic, and corrugated materials. Applications include construction projects, custom cabinetry, and countertop production. These machines allow rapid completion of custom building products, as well as copies, increasing the efficiency of your business.

Like all CNC routers, a 5 axis router has a built-in computer system to guide cutting. Users enter their designs into the system, and the router automatically follows the instruction series to carve the workpiece. This reduces the workload on the operator while improving the accuracy and speed of project completion. Users have the option of manual operation when needed.

Features of a 5 Axis CNC Router

A 5 axis CNC saw is the pinnacle of speed, precision and versatile cutting power. These innovative machines are capable of moving in five axes, so they are capable of creating the most complex cuts and shapes.

A miter saw blade allows up to a 90-degree tilt. An extra-large cutting table can easily process a full slab of quartz, granite or other stone materials. A covering of rubber pads enables you to process materials without any surface scratches or excessive friction.

Select a CNC saw from BACA Systems for a specialized stone manufacturing machine. A one-inch water line cools the blade as it cuts to prevent excess heat. It also allows faster cuts as the blade speeds through your stone or other countertop material.

Applications of a CNC Router

Our 5 axis CNC router is designed for stone cutting, but these dynamic machines are capable of far more. Many 5 axis routers are capable of cutting wood, steel, corrugated materials and plastic. Thanks to the unique core bit and water cooling system, your BACA Systems router is best used for countertop materials.

Glide through quartz, marble, granite or other hard surfaces to create stunning selections for your facility. Whether you’re a custom cabinetry manufacturer or a licensed construction company, a stone fabrication CNC router is an excellent investment to create your own custom pieces.

Benefits of a BACA Boss Saw

BACA Boss Saw

Choose a leading 5 axis CNC router. The BACA Boss Saw is a cutting-edge machine capable of quickly turning a blank slab into a number of stunning stone products. Your team will enjoy dramatically faster cut times compared to hand cutting a custom piece. Explore the other great benefits of this saw before discovering how you can order one today.

A Boss Saw is equipped to handle faucet holes, arcs, sink cut-outs and other precision cuts. A sturdy steel structure promotes reliability for years to come as you power through slab after slab of durable materials.

Compared to other CNC machines, the Boss Saw has a noticeably smaller footprint. If space is limited in your facility, enjoy a space-saving device that is the foundation of your custom countertop production. A cutting table measuring 78.75 inches by 137.80 inches is large enough for full slabs at a time. Tilt it up to 85 degrees for safe and convenient loading and unloading.

If there’s a specific cut or application that this machine doesn’t handle, simply upgrade it. There is a range of complementary systems that reduce wait time and improve cutting efficiency for your Boss Saw.

Speed Label allows you to easily catalog all of your workpieces to reduce the risk of error. BACA Pure is an eco-friendly water filtration system that is designed to work directly with your CNC router. A Robo Lift, Jib Crane or other devices from our facility can take your manufacturing line to the next level.

While the Boss Saw has many built-in features for versatility, it can also be upgraded to handle different projects. If you need to increase the capabilities and improve the cutting time of your system, you can add the following tools:

  • Robo Lift – quickly and safely moves heavy workpieces
  • Speed Label – catalogs workpieces to maintain organization
  • Jib Crane – lifts up to 2,000 pounds with manual 360-degree rotation
  • Baca Pure – water filtration system allows your shop to recycle greywater

These features, along with the specialized core bit, make the Boss Saw uniquely suited to countertop fabrication. Cut through granite, marble, quartz, and other hard counter surfaces with speed and precision.
