The cutting cycle is fully automated for virtually unattended operating:
1. the marble or granite strip to be cut moves forward while resting on the feeding belt which slides on the milled bench of the machine, and halts close to the pneumatic stop (if existing).
2. a movable aligner to bring the strip into square before starting the cut, is housed on the front part of the machine, opposite the spindle-holding beam.
3. the cut is performed while the spindleholding beam moves orthogonally with respect to the conveyor belt.
Once the cut is carried out, the saw blades lift before getting back to their starting position, and the strip - cut into tiles - is transferred outside the machine, while a new strip to be cut enters the machine.
