The MARCO is the new breed of 4 axis bridge saws for the stone industries. It has a full CNC controller which coupled with the very easy to use front end program makes this machine one of the most versatile saws available in the market. The most innovative part of this saw is the fact that the head/blade can rotate around the full 360 degrees; thus allowing the operator to make angled and circular cuts. It's CNC brain allows the operator to use the machine in four different modes: Manual, Parametric, Semi Auto and Full Auto.
Semi-Automatic & Manual
In the 'Semi-Automatic' mode, the operator can program up-to 9 lines of cuts each, with a maximum of 99 repetitions.
In the 'Manual' mode, the operator can position the blade to the first line of cut and choose to perform a blind or an End-to-End Cut. The operator can enter the transfer width for the next cut and click on the move button on the software application. The CNC controller positions the bridge to the required width at an accuracy of 0.1mm.
Full Automatic Mode
In the fully Automatic mode, the operator draws the necessary profiles using a standard CAD software and imports the file in dxf format. This file can then be imported into the Marco Software. An automatic cutting speed is preset and by clicking on the go button, the machine cuts all the necessary profiles.
The Marco software comes with programmed profiles whose dimensions can be altered on the go. Most of the common profiles for islands, counter tops etc are available in this module.
Blind cut limits can be programmed into automatic cuts by defining the Start and End points for each cut. If Start and End points are not defined, the cuts will be 'End-to-End' or 'Through' cuts.
The Saw head can be rotated to a full 360 degrees. Bridge transfers are always parrallel to the blade angle. Cutting direction is always the in line with the blade.
A high pressure hydraulic RAM attached the table frame tilts the table towards the front to a 80 degree angle to the ground. A simple selector flip switch is mounted to the side of the hanging pendant.
