I am new to this site because I own a marble shop that is looking to get a cnc in the next 6-12 months. Since this is a huge investment, I am trying to do my homework. We have a small shop and I am looking to NOT hire employees and I believe this will help quality/output for years to come. I'll try to keep it short so...I've narrowed it down to Bav, omag and brembana (concept not maxima). What are your experiances with these machines and: Is a belt spindle (omag,bav) better for granite? How much will I use the 4th axis saw(normal kitchens)? Is the probe on the bav really better/faster? Can I expect to fabricate 2 kitchens/day on these? Is it resonable to assume that with proper maintance I can get 10 years from these brands(aprx 1200 hrs/year)? Right now I believe I like the Bavelloni the most, but the omag is $35000 less. All your comments will be helpful.
Thank you, Nick
