Saphir I Pro

Saphir I Pro

The service robot with one stone, automatic loading and optional RACE EDGE unit

Saphir I Pro – robot with 1 stone


The MONTANA SAPHIR I PRO has automatic loading and can be optionally upgraded with a RACE EDGE unit. With a wide grinding stone and a capacity of 40 pairs of skis per hour with four stone contacts, the state-of-the-art SAPHIR I PRO is the perfect machine for preparing skis and snowboards. The ski length is measured automatically and the PowerVac suction system adapts itself accordingly. With the RACE EDGE technology, the side edges are prepared with high precision and fulfill the highest demands of the ski racing world.
All SAPHIR models include our PRO technology, which, thanks to a differentiated pressure curve, controls the amount of material removed even more precisely in accordance with the geometry of the ski. In this way, the harmonious movement which occurs during skiing is included in the grinding process. 


  • Automatic ski length recognition
  • Automatic stone grinding with pressure curve for 1 pair of skis or 1 snowboard
  • PRO-Technology for particularly material-friendly grinding in the ski tip and tail areas
  • Grinding of the side edges for skis or snowboards with freely programmable pressure curve
  • Base-beveling High-Tech Tuning (HTT) of the side edges
  • Racing ski mode with computer-controlled speed curve for preparation to World Cup standards
  • Integrated remote service
  • Space-saving, high-capacity unit
  • Touch screen display with new, intuitive navigation

Advantages of the PRO technology

  • High-precision force curve for the latest ski and board models such as rockers, twin tips and rocker boards. Thanks to NC - technology the pressure can be regulated individually and precisely for each stone.
  • Twin tip grinding of shovel and ski end
  • NC - technology for the dresser with stepper motors for grinding and tuning disks. The dressing is thus even more precise
  • Large 15” touch screen with simplified and clear operation
  • Network-enabled PC control with Windows Embedded 7
