DONATONI SX-5 Q is an innovative numerical control multi-spindle cutting centre with five cutting units with interpolated axes, designed and patented by Donatoni Macchine to satisfy those needing a compact system for large-scale production line of marble, granite and agglomerate flooring and wall coverings of various types with different sizes and thickness.

Donatoni Macchine were the first to introduce a multi-spindle machine with patented rotating bridge to the market and, rich in the experience they have built up over the years, they can guarantee their customers a very high level of productivity and at the same time complete optimisation of the slabs.

Head support bridge with 3 or 5 spindles connected to the carriage with a large slewing ring which enables the rotation of the 3/5 spindle units.
Carriage holding bridge in fabricated steel structure with double beam to ensure that the weights and the head support bridge are evenly distributed and the bridge is perfectly balanced.
The machine is equipped with motorised belts for moving the slabs during the cutting/unloading phases.
Suctions cups for lifting and positioning the cut pieces in order to exploit the slabs as much as possible.
Ball recirculating sliding crosspieces and helical toothed racks for sliding the Y axis, with oil bath lubrication and protected by bellows with labyrinth closure.
Measurement system of blade diameter.
System to detect slab, with camera positioned above the machine and image acquisition software. The application enables the slab dimensions to be exploited in the best way possible and allows the cutting to be carried out avoiding any defects or any veins in the material.
System to automatically detect the thickness of the slab.


Parametrix is the simple and intuitive Software developed by Donatoni Macchine and designed to optimise the management of cuts of variously-shaped pieces on a slab. It enables work processes involving cuts with discs, milling cutters and drills, the insertion of straight and curved forms and shapes that have been pre-set or imported from DXF files, and the optimisation of processing times and slab surfaces.

Discover Parametrix

It allows you to measure the surface of slabs placed on the workbench using a camera located on top of the machine and the acquisition software integrated with Parametrix.
