Northwood SawJet

In 2006, Northwood introduced a revolution to the stone industry. We call it the SawJet. This was a revolutionary concept at the time. It was the synergistic combination of two technologies; The CNC Saw & and The CNC waterjet. This machine has changed the way stone is processed. Finally, you have the best of both worlds in one affordable package. The current Generation 5 Sawjet is the result of refinement and perfection of the modern CNC stone saw.

The Northwood SawJet comes with a 20 HP Saccardo motor and 16 blade for cutting marble, granite, and limestone. The saw is equipped with Smart Saw Feed Function that uses dynamic force feedback to continuously vary cutting speeds, this allows for improved efficiency when cutting quartz and Dektom(tm) stone products. Mitering capabilities through the Wittenstein gearbox and Fanuc drive allow up to 48 degrees of motion.

KMT Pump and Garnett Systemsawjet/kmtcutaway.jpg

In addition to the saw-motor, the Northwood SawJet is equipped with an abrasive waterjet head from KMT Waterjet, and is powered by a 60,000 PSI Intensifier Pump. The garnet is fed from a pressurized reservoir to a motor-driven, metered feeder system proximate to the waterjet nozzle. The SawJet software automatically switches between the saw and waterjet as the condition demands, and blends the two cuts as a product of an easy-to-follow calibration routine. In addition, Northwood’s industry-leading StoneVision(tm) 3.0 software, coupled with Alphacam(tm) software by Vero Software, takes the difficulty and risk out of processing drawings or digitized data into machine toolpaths.

The Northwood SawJet integrates a complete run of high-pressure stainless steel piping. The piping lines are contained in a dual chamber energy chain, providing proper protection and control of each line. This system improves the life and reliable of the hp pressure lines.

Fanuc Servo Driven Ground Ball Screws

The Northwood SawJet is controlled by a FANUC Servo control system closely integrated with a 40mm ground ballscrew This combination is designed to provide years of trouble free operation and also provide the highest level of accuracy. Northwood’s interface software and machine control allow an operator to quickly load and run part programs, as well as perform other machine tasks.   In addition, Northwood’s industry-leading StoneVision(tm) 3.0 software, coupled with Alphacam(tm) software by Vero Software, takes the difficulty and risk out of processing drawings or digitized data into machine toolpaths.

Ballast Tanks

 

Each tank comes with ballast, a leveling-capable tank/grate and a pre-loaded grating system. This proven system allows the SawJet to cut under water, a necessity when cutting difficult stone such as Dekton(tm)
