Machine of the Month
The Contour from Matrix Stone Products is a powerful CNC workcenter designed to automate the process of cutting and polishing sink holes. From its inception, the company's engineers focused on applying the power and versatility CNC controls in a compact footprint, along with a full-sized feature package. The Contour has been engineered to efficiently produce an endless variety of sink shapes to a high-quality polish without incurring long downtimes due to programming.
The operator can download DXF, DWG or IGES files to create programs, or create custom shapes with the easy-to-use CAD/CAM software. By using the custom tool library, the operator simply applies the selected tool group to the geometry of the sink shape, and the software does the rest. â€œGâ€ code programming is not required.
The Contour has a range of standard features to keep the process flowing and minimize set-up time. With the powerful Fagor CNC control, screen navigation and set-up functions are simplified, even for operators with little or no prior CNC experience. Features include a powerful 15-horsepower spindle, a versatile vacuum cup clamping system, integrated multi-directional slab positioning rollers and a three-axis, handheld remote pendant.
