"Comet" performs the continuous shaping and polishing of profiles either flat and linear or with a regular round shape (such as bullnose, half bullnose and quarter bullnose edges, etc.), shaping of special profiles, calibration, execution of bilateral bevelled edges, drip grooves, wings and slots on horizontally placed, natural and engineered stone workpieces.A hydraulic power unit actuates the slat conveyor, the 8 polishing spindles (one of which can be equipped with a diamond wheel) and the unit that makes them oscillate so that their service life is longer and faultless even though they work under a jet of water.
