Following descriptions are from the manufacturer's web site:
The way the SawJETô operates is revolutionary. Most stone countertops are shaped in such a way that they have many straight lines. The saw head on the SawJETô rotates 360 degrees and is fully programmable, which enables the saw to make straight cuts in any direction on the slab. Straight edges can be cut five to six times faster with a saw blade than with a traditional abrasive waterjet and without the high operation cost of conventional machines. The SawJETô also enables the fabricator to machine small granite or quartz parts without the use of backer boards or plastic or rubber bumpers, which can compress and cause stone to crack.
The SW-257 features a dual table configuration and a 50 Hp abrasive waterjet with a standard 10 HP saw (a 15 HP saw unit is a standard option). The saw unit is capable of running 10î to 14î saw blades. As with all Northwood Machine Manufacturing Company machines, the SawJETô features the industry-leading GE Fanuc control system, cast-iron drive systems, zero-backlash, ground ballscrews with rotating nut technology, and zero-hassle support.
