LAKE ORION, MI -- BACA Systems, the leader in robotic sawjet technology for the stone fabrication industry, has been named the 2017 Americas System Partner of the Year by KUKA Robotics, a global manufacturer of industrial robots and factory automation solutions.

The award was announced at the 2018 KUKA Americas System Partner Summit, which took place on April 11. This is the second year in a row that BACA has earned the distinction from KUKA.

“KUKA is proud to recognize the 30 years of robotics experience that the BACA team is now applying to the stone industry to provide high-performance, high-quality solutions,” Chief Regional Officer Joe Gemma said. “Utilizing our KR Quantec foundry robots, BACA Systems has created an innovative automation solution that is changing the stone fabrication industry. Their dual table Robo SawJet empowers stone fabricators to produce full cut countertops on one table of a cell while unloading and reloading raw slabs on the other table.”

BACA Systems is the North American leader in providing robotic-based sawjets for the stone industry with more than 200 units in operation. “We’re honored to receive the award,” BACA President Scot Lindemann said. “We’re very pleased that KUKA values our commitment to the stone industry. We’re leading the charge in North America to improve stone fabrication operations, from productivity to safety.”

BACA’s flexible manufacturing systems are the most productive, reliable, and lowest cost to operate in the stone industry.
