We offer high-quality services in cutting materials such as marble, Dekton, granite and quartz to create beautiful and long-lasting countertops and floors.
The Robo Sawjet 2.0 is an upgraded version of Sawjet technology, combining a saw and a waterjet to make precise cuts in hard materials like stone, marble, and granite. The benefits of the Robo Sawjet 2.0 include:

Increased Precision: The Robo Sawjet 2.0 uses advanced 3D mapping and control technology to make precise cuts with minimal tolerance. This ensures that the cuts are clean and consistent, resulting in a higher quality of the final product.

Improved Efficiency – The Robo Sawjet 2.0 is capable of fast and accurate cuts, significantly reducing production time. The combination of the saw and the waterjet allows cutting hard materials more efficiently and with less waste.

Versatility: This system can cut a wide variety of materials, including stone, marble, granite, and other hard materials. This makes it a versatile tool for various applications in the construction and design industry.

More than 25 pieces daily, with a sophisticated shapes

Cutting a large number of pieces with sophisticated shapes can be a challenging task, but having efficient technology can make a significant difference.

It's worth noting that the specific technology and approach may vary depending on the industry and the materials being cut. If you can provide more information about your industry, the materials involved, and any specific requirements or constraints, I can offer more tailored advice.

Maintenance and Calibration

Regular maintenance and calibration of your cutting equipment are crucial for consistent and accurate results. Ensure that your machines are properly calibrated, sharp blades or laser optics are maintained, and any necessary adjustments or repairs are promptly addressed.
Less risk of damage: The Robo Sawjet 2.0 uses the water jet to cool the saw and the material during the cut. This helps reduce heat generation and minimizes the risk of material damage, which in turn prolongs the life of the saw.

Automation and Productivity: With the ability to schedule cuts and let the Robo Sawjet 2.0 do the work autonomously, productivity is improved and reliance on human labor is reduced. This allows companies to increase their efficiency and reduce operating costs.

Enhanced Safety: The Robo Sawjet 2.0 is equipped with advanced safety features such as obstacle detection sensors and emergency stop systems. These features ensure a safe working environment and reduce the risk of accidents.

Overall, the Robo Sawjet 2.0 offers greater precision, efficiency and versatility compared to traditional hard material cutting systems. These benefits translate into a significant improvement in productivity and the quality of work performed.

The importance of having adequate equipment to cut dekton and porcelain

Dekton, among other alternative stone materials, continues to grow in popularity for applications such as countertops, flooring, and both interior and exterior wall cladding. Being a hard dense product, it is crucial to use appropriate tooling during the fabrication process. Carlos Sustaita, production director for STA Granite, provides several important tips of advice for those working with compact sintered stone.

Why do products such as Dekton need special/different tools than those that are used for cutting granite and marble?

Material hardness is the key to understanding why you need different tools to fabricate Dekton. The material has a
very high density (ultra-compact), which means that if you don’t use proper tools, you can either break the tool or the material or even worse, damage the machinery.

The cutting process requires trimming the edges to release tensions. Then you have to follow cutting recommendations, which include using plenty of water, the proper speed, feed rate, etc. Once you follow the rules, it’s a piece of cake.
When doing edging on Dekton, What is the difference in the process compared to a natural stone?

In this sense, Dekton’s edge is very easy to work with since the material is very homogeneous, and it is easy to get very good results. Any fabricator can do it well on the first attempt.

What are some common mistakes that fabricators are making when it comes to cutting this material? And, what are some common mistakes with doing edging or doing sinkholes or something?

The main mistake is trying to fabricate Dekton as if it was a granite or quartz composite. You will fail if you use the same tools, speed rates, and so on. Another common mistake is trying to cut Dekton in uneven support. It is a common source of problems too.

Sometimes people ask about what machine is best to cut Dekton. I believe the key is not the machine but the tools and proper maintenance. I have seen people with very modest equipment doing amazing things and the other way around.

7 Keys for Cutting Ultra-Compact and Sintered Dekton and Porcelain Materials

1. Water

It may seem too simple or too intuitive to matter, but less than adequate water AND hoses positioned incorrectly is the most common error causing headaches among cutting these materials.
2. Check your table level

One of the more overlooked aspects of successful cutting is, to the degree that your table is not level in the horizontal plane, vibrations will occur. This unevenness can result in chipping and likely breaking the edge of your slab.
3. Buy the right blade

As cliche, as it may sound, choosing the right blade for the material you are processing, is critical.
4. Removing tensioning strips

While each manufacturer of ultra-compact and sintered porcelain materials may, or may not have tensioning strips built into the perimeters of each slab, if they are not removed before cutting, the slab is at higher risk of cracking or breaking.
5. Feed rate and RPMs

Using the same feed rate and RPMs you may be accustomed to when cutting other materials can be a recipe for trouble. Unlike fabricating more common materials such as marble and granite, we’ve seen the most success cutting ultra-compact and sintered porcelain materials when following a systemized approach is used.
6. Avoiding Plunging

While plunge cutting tends to be of little concern for most sawyers when cutting ultra-compact and sintered porcelain materials it can pose big problems resulting in cracking or breaking your slab.
7. Cutting Sinks

Projects requiring a sink cut-out can be an obstacle many fabricators dread. Since we already know plunging is not the ideal way to go about this, what are your options? When preparing a sink cut-out, it is advised to drill each of the four corners with a 1/2” core bit before to start initiating cutting.
