It’s a Robolution! LPE Group introduced the American-made Robo SawJet to the UK and Europe. Now comes the Robolution Pro, with a disc and a waterjet cutter on the same head, both capable of mitres as well as straight cuts for the production of 20-25 worktops a shift in a fraction of the footprint required for a separate saw and waterjet. Robolution needs just 9m x 5.5m. One has already been ordered by a UK stone company. The Baca Systems saw joins other technologically advanced solutions to stone processing from LPE, including its laser digital templaters, the Easy DXF digitiser to create DXF files for CNC processing from physical templates, and Slabsmith for digitising slabs and maintaining an inventory. LTP is also the UK agent for Italian Comandulli edge polishers and Omni Cubed handling equipment, which has lately introduced a slim slab saver for use with porcelains. LPE MD Carl Sharkey says the fact that most of what it sells comes from America could be a bonus in the UK when the Brexit transitional period is over.
