Robo SawJet

Industry-Leading Technology

The Robo SawJet stone cutting saw was the ORIGINAL robotic based sawjet introduced to stone fabricators, and today BACA systems has more robots running in North American stone shops than all of our competitors combined. Our experience and commitment to innovation has resulted in over 400 successful installations for stone processing to date.

Overview

The Robo SawJet is our programmable Saw and Abrasive WaterJet cutting system. Robo SawJet combines traditional stone processing technology with lean industrial machine technologies to provide an affordable and reliable system for your cutting operations. Robo SawJet utilizes a KUKA robot equipped with the simplicity of a conventional saw in combination with the flexibility of abrasive waterjet technology. The system features BACA’s Easy-2-use, Ready-2-Use programming software and an intuitive operator interface to automatically generate cutting paths with a few clicks of the mouse. Programming can be accomplished at the machine on the factory floor or in the office remotely. The system also uses less floor space than traditional gantry or bridge style machines.

Features

Lowest Maintenance

The KUKA KR210 robot is designed for its first maintenance to be a simple oil change at 5 years or 10,000 hours of operation. Compared with gantry sawjet solutions that need maintenance weekly, users of this robotic stone cutting machine realize far less downtime and cost to maintain their equipment.

Faster Speeds

Robo SawJet comes standard with high pressure coils on all six (6) axes. This allows the robot to move much faster from cut to cut. This also means that high pressure lines can be replaced much quicker than lines on gantry sawjets that are packed into cable tracks.

More Productivity

The dual table Robo SawJet allows loading and unloading in one station while the robot is cutting in the opposing station. This allows the system to be cutting constantly, allowing more countertops to be processed by the stone cutting saw each hour.

Less Cutting Time

The Robo SawJet system uses a 26 HP saw motor equipped with a 16″ saw blade, giving you the power needed to cut at the highest speed possible. A variable frequency drive (VFD) is standard, giving you the control needed to cut any material with ease.

Increased Yield

The sawjet process eliminates the need to move saw cut pieces between cuts by finishing cuts with waterjet where the cut would damage an adjacent piece. The PC based RoboCut software included with the system automatically decides where the stone cutter machine’s saw cuts and waterjet cuts are needed, programming the cuts with one mouse click.

Reduced Handling

Robo SawJet can cut faucets, arcs and sink openings, reducing the need to move pieces to secondary stations to complete these cuts. In addition, cutting these items in the sawing process reduces labor and frees up time for other activities. Cutting sinks and arcs in the sawing process can reduce time on CNC machines, reducing the bottleneck at these stations while reducing costs related to tooling wear.
