The answer is both of them! These machines are complementary and are the perfect equipment for countertops and monuments. The 5-axis bridge saw allows you to cut your natural stone, quartz or ceramic pieces in any directions and the machining centre a complete finishing with milling, drilling, roughing, shaping and polishing … It is the ideal investment that will help you develop your sales!
These machines, designed and assembled by the THIBAUT company, based in France and represented in more than 70 countries, are the result of 60 years of innovation! For many years, THIBAUT has developed unrivalled experience in the field of numerically controlled machine tools, starting in the 1950s with polishing, which is the most delicate operation to be carried out on stone.

Machining centres and CNC 5-axis bridge saws have been the most popular machines in recent years, especially in companies processing natural stone, quartz and ceramics.
1- Steardy and versatile machines for countertops and monuments businesses, the heaviest machines of the market.
2- Its innovative design represents your company and guarantees a good image to your customers.
3- The unique ACS (Angle cut solution) feature makes our 5 axis CNC bridge saw the best alternative to a combination of Waterjet+ bridge saw for a much cheaper price.
4- The 12 cms granite table for the machining centre reduces vibrations, noise pollution and tool wear by 10%, which represents a substantial savings in tool expenses in life time of the machine
5- Exclusivity Thibaut: the ideal pneumatic pressure for polishing. It allows the exact reproduction of man's gestures on the stone, thus compensating for planimetry defects.
6- More than 60 years of know-how in stone leads us to innovations such as the AR-3 satellite head, the best and most efficient solution for a perfect polishing of granite.
7- One of the biggest tool magazine capacity of the market, up to 49 tools…
8- Our PILOT program, a very user friendly interface, facilitates the use of the user interface
9- The self-supporting doors and the 19'' screen embedded in the centre of the machine comply with safety standards and offer better ergonomics and comfort for the operator.
