Combined disk and Waterjet cutting centre for the production of cut to size slabs

The cutting unit consists of a spindle prearranged to hold a diamond disk and a Waterjet head, it rotates around its axis (4th axis) and is provided with motorized inclination from 0 to 55° (5th axis).

Combicut combines and alternates the cutting with disk and Waterjet according to preset programs and/or at will: this al-lows to optimize cuts thus ensuring waste minimization (there is no need to move the slab or the workpieces).

It is also pos-sible to perform complex rectilinear and curvilinear cuts as well as inclined cuts. Combicut conforms to the CE accident-prevention and UL/CSA North-American (optional) standards.

Version without foundations is available

In the standard version of the machine, cement shoulders are provided by the buyer. On request (optional accessory), COMBICUT can be supplied with shoulders consisting of metal structures, which do not require foundations and are simply fixed to the floor.

Version with automatic system for worktop exchange

COMBICUT comes standard with a fixed worktop consisting of a steel tray (with "gradually deteriorating" blades) that supports the slab during machining.

On request (optional accessory), COMBICUT can be supplied with a system for the automatic exchange of worktops that steps up productivity: the uncut slab and its cutting scheme are prearranged outside the machine while COMBICUT is cutting another slab, then the two worktops are swapped automatically thus saving time.

Top-of-the-line Waterjet system

The Waterjet pump system is supplied by KMT/Waterjet Systems that will also pro-vide the buyer/user with the international guarantee service on the Waterjet cutting system.

Heavy-duty cutting spindle

The suitably dimensioned cutting spindle is provided with inverter for the non-stop variation of the disk rotation speed and cut-tracing laser displaying the cutting direction.

The cutting unit (cutting spindle with disk and Waterjet head) ro-tates around its axis by ±190° (4th axis), thus giving competitive advantages: an unrivalled cutting precision and speed.

Motorized and programmed inclination of the cutting unit

The inclination of the cutting unit (cutting spindle with disk and Waterjet head) is automatic, motorized and can be pro-grammed in any position from 0° to 55° (optional 5th axis) in order to perform inclined cuts in either the plunge-cut or step-cut mode, required, for instance, when V-grooves are to be machined.


COMBICUT is equipped with a latest generation Siemens Sinumerik 840D SL computer numerical control (CNC) with digital control on PC architecture and a Personal Computer with Intel processor and Windows XP operating system.

The control board can be rotated and is provided with keyboard, colour touch-screen for graphic visualization and USB port.

A portable button panel, cable-linked to the console, duplicates the main controls (management of the axes + handwheel, safety stop, …), thus enabling the operator to stand nearby the piece under machining and visually inspect the correct execution of some delicate operations.
