What Is a 5-Axis CNC Saw?

A 5-axis CNC (Computer Numerical Control) saw for the stone industry is a highly advanced machine used for cutting, shaping, and processing stone materials, such as marble, granite, and other natural or engineered stones.

Like all CNC saws, a 5-axis saw has a built-in computer system to guide cutting. Users enter their designs into the system, and the machine automatically follows the instruction series to fabricate the countertop parts. This reduces the workload on the operator while improving the accuracy and speed of countertop fabrication. Users also have the option of manual operations for easy quick cuts.

Features of a 5-Axis CNC Saw

  • Five Axes of Movement:
    • 1. X-axis: Horizontal movement (left-right).
    • 2. Y-axis: Horizontal movement (front-back).
    • 3. Z-axis: Vertical movement (up-down).
    • 4. A-axis: Rotational movement around the X-axis.
    • 5. B-axis: Rotational movement around the Y-axis.
  • Precision Cutting: Allows for intricate and precise cuts, achieving complex geometries and designs that would be difficult or impossible with traditional saws.
  • Automation: Reduces manual labor and increases production efficiency. The CNC system allows for programmable cutting paths and operations, enabling automated processing of stone materials.
  • Versatility: Capable of performing various operations, such as cutting, milling, drilling, and profiling, making it suitable for producing countertops, sculptures, architectural elements, and custom stonework.
  • High-Quality Finish: Delivers smooth and accurate finishes, reducing the need for additional manual polishing or finishing work.

Benefits of the Versa 5

BACA's Versa 5

The Versa 5 is the most versatile and flexible 5-axis interpolated cutting center designed for processing natural and engineered stone, ceramic, and ultra-compact materials.

This saw fully meets the very parameters—speed, accuracy, working strokes, and software interface—required for all tasks connected to efficient slab fabrication, encompassing trimming, de-tensioning cuts, mitering, multidirectional and curvilinear jobs, as well as inner cut-outs.

The Bridge and “Y” guideways of the Versa 5 are crafted from monolithic, heavily ribbed steel, normalized and zinc-coated for protection against rust in challenging stone environments. Additionally, frame parts and the worktable undergo hot zinc coating, ensuring durability and longevity in tough conditions.

The Versa 5 tilting table is hydraulically driven and constructed from heavily ribbed steel that is hot zinc-coated, ensuring resilience in demanding stone environments. With dimensions measuring 137.7” x 92.1”, this sturdy table is built to endure harsh conditions with ease.

The saw blade features powered automatic inclination, adjustable from 0 to 90 degrees. This function enables swift adjustment of the machine head angle without manual intervention. It streamlines complex cutting cycles, simplifying the process of creating miters, accelerating operations, and minimizing operator errors.

The Mechanical Touch-Probe, accompanied by management software, measures the material’s top surface, identifying slab thickness variations, uneven table surfaces, and any warping or bowing of the material. The Versa 5 software then automatically changes the trajectory of the saw blade ensuring accurate miters and dimensionally correct parts.

The Automatic Saw & Tool Wear Sensor, equipped with management software, detects the saw blade diameter and tool length effortlessly. This feature automatically adjusts the cutting tool’s depth, ensuring it penetrates through the material and just grazes the cutting table surface. By utilizing the Automatic Touch Probe, you eliminate the need for manual adjustment by operators, thus enhancing the longevity of the cutting table.
