Smart-Cut 550 OPTIMA - Bridge saw with rotating head for kitchen top producers

The bridge saw SMART-CUT S/NC 550 OPTIMA is the ideal CNC cutting centre for kitchen top producers: with interpolated axes, equipped with rotating head and fixed work bench, designed to perform multiple machining operations which would otherwise require several machines, such as: cutting of slabs, shaping and dishing out of small blocks, engraving of inscriptions, drilling, etc. using either the diamond disc or the drills.

Equipped with a vacuum cup pick-and-place system, the machine handles the cut pieces thus optimizing the slab cutting and moves them in order to execute routings on their back-face(rodding) where the reinforcing rods will be cemented.

On request, the work bench can be equipped with a tilting top; in the bridge saw S/NC 550B OPTIMA version, the bench is equipped with a motorized conveyor belt so as to automate the loading and unloading operations.
