Designed specifically for the stone countertop fabricator, the Express 3200 from Regent Stone Products comes standard with many features that are generally sold as extras, the company reports. These features include: a heavy-duty cast iron bridge; a cast iron, fully synchronized and oil-filled rack-and-pinion gantry system that is sealed from the elements; and a direct-drive 20-hp motor with hand-held remote control.

The Z axis tilts to plunge cut to 45 degrees, with a motorized hydraulic tilting table that automatically turns to 45 and 90 degrees with digital readout of position. Rounding out the list of standard features is an automated cutting program.
