GCI Surfaces: Using a sawjet and waterjet to ramp up production: Within the past year, GCI Surfaces of Clearwater, FL, increased production, downsized its footprint and began to cut intricate stone pieces — all with its new Baca Robo SawJet
A year ago, Michael Gladstone of Gladstone Construction Inc dba GCI Surfaces, located in Clearwater, FL, decided he needed to speed up his production rate in the shop. In September of 2014, he purchased a Baca Robo SawJet, which he believed would assist in achieving this goal.
“We needed a faster way to cut our slabs, have a small footprint because the shop space was becoming limited and the ability to do intricate cuts as well as maximize yield we could get from a slab,” explained Gladstone. “This machine does that. The software is fast and easy to learn and use. The accuracy of the cuts are exact. If calibration is required, it is easy to do. The safety features are second to none.”
