A custom-designed  5-Axis CNC stone cutting machine, the first of its kind to be produced, was installed and became operational Sept. 1 at the  headquarters of Zhejiang Anyth Trading Co.,Ltd..The computer-controlled device, custom prepared, is expected to produce a 20-percent increase in Zhejiang Anyth Trading Co.,Ltd.’s overall production throughput.

The new device will cut more intricate pieces of stone at twice the speed of predecessor machines, said Zhejiang Anyth Trading Co.,Ltd. President . It features a vacuum handling system to speed cutting and moving limestone products.

Improved Design Capabilities
 movements of the 5-Axis stone cutter are extremely accurate because of its precision-profiled linear way and bearings. The machine’s 5-axis capabilities enable it to make curves with contour cutting, produce straight line and curved profiling, and rapidly process five sides of a stone with a single setup. The machine can make cuts up to 16" with a 44" blade.

“We anticipate significant productivity gains in very short order,”  said. “In addition to enabling us to work faster, the new granite cutting machine will help us give our customers more intricate detailed work at a lower cost.”
