THE ULTIMATE FABRICATION CENTER - UFC 138

THE TRIPLE THREAT TO YOUR COMPETITORS

With the introduction of the Fanuc Driven Saccardo Sawing Motor, we raised the bar to a new level. In addition to applying 15hp to the blade, we now offer full mitering capabilities.  You can now apply mitered edges from 44-91 degrees. Cutting slabs with speed makes the  Northwood FabCenter the one machine choice.

Northwood introduced the Extreme Duty Spindle in 2006.  Unlike the commonly used electrospindle, the EDS was engineered with stone fabrication in mind. The EDS separates the motor from the spindle and preventing expensive rebuilds that are so common in the world of electrospindles. This spindle design provides a huge amount of torque at low RPM. Leathering slabs will not overload the spindle. We are so confident in our spindle design that we offer a 3-year warranty.

Northwood introduced the 138 series in 2001. Since then we have improved and refined that design. From the EDS spindle with a 3-year warranty, ball screw drives, and fanuc motion controls to incredible measures to ensure corrosion resistance and long machine life. This machine is a serious machine tool.

THE GAME CHANGED AGAIN IN 2007

In 2007 Northwood revolutionized the stone industry by introducing the FABCENTER. This concept introduced the idea of a one-machine digital processing solution. You can cut slabs and mill them on the same machine. Since it's initial introduction, Northwood has diligently refined and perfected the FabCenter. If you are looking for a one machine solution or would like to add a CNC with a solid saw to your line up, the Northwood FabCenter is for you.

A SERIOUS CNC SAW

The 3rd Generation Northwood FabCenter uses a 15HP direct drive Saccardo Sawing Motor. This tilt function uses a Fanuc Servo to tilt from 44-90 degrees. This saw cut the slabs quickly and efficiently utilizing Northwoods Smart Saw technology.

 

A sawing solution you can count on.

SW-138UFC - THE ONE MACHINE SOLUTION

barcode.jpgThis model exceeds the challenging needs of most contemporary stone fabricators. The large work envelope (156" x 96")  allows the operator to process an entire slab worth of countertops in one setup.  The 138UFC has been the industry standard bearer since it's introduction in 2007. This revolutionary form factor has proven so successful that it is no surprise that many other companies building CNC machines have followed our engineering leadership. View Specifications

SW-158UFC - SUPERSIZED

fabcenter/texturing.jpgThe 158UFC was designed from the ground up for the modern stone fabricator who desires an even bigger machine. With a massive work envelope of 180" x 96" and the same quality machine components as the 138UFC. This FabCenter will exceed your expectations. Northwood originally designed the NW-138UFC to accommodate an entire slab. We created this larger version to enable even bigger milling batches with longer run times. View Specifications
