Alpha Introduces New Wet/Dry Stone Cutter

Posted on 01 December 2021 by cradmin4

Alpha Professional Tools has introduced a new electric wet/dry stone cutter, the ESC-150. The cutter comes equipped with a powerful motor capable of cutting 1-1/4-in. stone slabs in one pass. In addition, the ESC-150 offers portability so that any stone fabricator can use it without the time-consuming setup.

The ESC-150 is also great for sink-hole cutting and groove-cutting for rodding applications. It includes a kink-free water hose for improved maneuverability of the stone cutter. The flexibility of the hose helps reduce operator fatigue and improves the operation. The Alpha ESC-150 is also dustless when connected to a HEPA vacuum, thanks to a built-in dust gate.

According to the company the ESC-150 can utilize a variety of consumables including the Alpha Katana 6-in. for porcelain panels and slabs, Hot-Rod 4-in. for 1/4-in. steel rods and 1/8-in. fiber glass rods. For marble applications, a Libero 5-in. blade is recommended since most marble slabs are 3/4-in. thick or less.

Alpha offers a carriage assembly that fits on the Alpha Guide Rail System to support the application of making precise miter cuts. Alpha has also created two new kits for use with the ESC-150. The first is a Miter Cutting Kit which allows fabricators to make mitered cuts for a waterfall edge. This kit comes with dual carriages, blades and a set of guide rails to fit any size job. The second kit is a simple cutting system to trim countertops quickly. It comes with a carriage assembly, as well as a blade and guide rail to provide accuracy.

This stunning quartz features MSI’s exclusive Lumaluxe formulation, enhancing how light interacts with the marble-like surface for genuinely eye-catching results. Calacatta Miraggio Gold is available in 2cm and 3cm slabs.

Calacatta Valentin Quartz – a warm white two-toned marble look background with subtle gold veins and a polished finish. Available in 2cm and 3cm slabs for design and installation flexibility.

Calacatta Versailles Quartz – a unique two-toned background in cool gray and white is unlike any quartz in the market. Calacatta Versailles resembles the look of natural stone but has the ease of maintenance and durability of quartz. The quartz is available in 2cm and 3cm slabs.

Posted on 03 November 2021 by cradmin4

Crossville has introduced a new porcelain panel collection inspired by the Italian slate Pietra di Lavagna. Ardesia a Spacco offers a truly unique aesthetic in two contrasting hues; Bianco and Nero.

The, textured material delivers chic styling in a 5.6mm thick porcelain that varies up to 1.5mm in thickness to realistically mimic natural slate’s dimensional appearance. Mesh backing is added to this large panel for enhanced strength and durability.
