Machine of the month
The GMM Rotex 39, available from Salem Stone, answers the need for high-speed, high-accuracy applications such as automated production lines, complex interior work, spiral staircases and other architectural pieces. This versatile saw is capable of producing accurate non-parallel, orthogonal and oblique cuts as well as complex profiles and circumference cuts all with a blade, the company reports. It features a rotating head rather than a rotating table, brushless motors, and linear bearings on the X-axis slide. The control accepts DXF files and can be loaded via a LAN network. The Rotex utilizes an innovative â€œSlab-Camâ€ technology to electronically select and position the cut to capture a desired area of the slab or to â€œnestâ€ multiple cuts to optimize the slab with state-of-the-art â€œdrag-and-dropâ€ operation.
