Alpha Introduces New Air Tools

Posted on 03 December 2019 by cradmin

Alpha Professional Tools has introduced new pneumatic tools to its product offerings.

The Alpha® PSC-600 is a newly developed high-performance wet pneumatic stone cutter. The PSC-600 comes with a very unique center water-feed system to deliver ample water on the both sides of the diamond blade, which will keep the dust down on the floor and also enhance the performance and life of the diamond blade. In addition, the end case is made with a composite material to prevent freezing by the rear exhaust system.

The Alpha PSC-600 is smaller and lighter than electric angle grinders and offers better maneuverability along with all the safety features. This turn-key operation stone cutter comes with 15 ft. all–weather hoses and a convenient water quick coupler with shut off valve. An option to use as a grinding or sanding tool with a 7/8-in. arbor is also provided. For grinding applications, a second inner flange is included as a standard accessory.

In addition Alpha has introduced the AIR-830 and AIR-850 Pneumatic Polishers. Now Alpha offers two models with different maximum RPM to cover all fabricators who want to create the best polish and/or want to improve their productivities and efficiencies. Both polishers are equipped with a newly developed motor with a 5 Hybrid composite vane design that outputs more power and lasts longer than their predecessor.

The polishers come with new splash guard which blocks the splash while providing better visibility. The end case was also re-designed to improve the water and air control operation and minimize the risk of breakage. A silicon boot for the gear head, and water quick coupler with shut off valve have also been added.

The Alpha polishers always come with an enhanced spindle shaft and full size wrenches for easy tool removal. The all-weather air and water hoses are 15 ft. and rated for -40°F or +140°F. The AIR-830 has a maximum no-load RPM of 4,400 and the AIR-850 has 5,500.

Alpha Professional Tools Introduces New Tile Leveling Systems

Posted on 06 February 2019 by cradmin

EZ Wedge

Alpha Professional Tools® introduced two new tile leveling systems which not only minimize lippage, but speed up the installation process saving time and expensive labor costs, according to the company. The EZ Wedge and EZ Click are next-generation tile leveling systems which reportedly maximize performance and can be installed in tile corners, thus requiring very few pieces to obtain a perfect, lippage-free and professional result.

The patented EZ Wedge is designed to be inserted into a clip (or clip & tab on corners) and tightened by hand as no pliers are needed. The wedge can then be easily removed and re-used numerous times.

EZ Click

The EZ Click uses base screws with a unique cap, which locks into place, to spin on and off the threads to level the tiles. The patent-pending cap also comes with a proprietary scratch-prevention edge design, that will kick out sand or debris while tightening the cap.

Both systems come with a wide selection of sizes to accommodate a variety of installations, as well as giving the installer a choice of their preferred method.

Alpha Professional Tools Introduces Beveling Base Starter Kit

Posted on 11 September 2018 by cradmin

Alpha has designed a Starter Kit specifically for the Beveling Auxiliary Base to assist the precision grinding for a perfect mitered edge application. This kit came to fruition in consideration of time, human error and cost savings when compared to expensive machinery.

The Starter Kit contains: Beveling Auxiliary Base, Carriage Assembly, Guide Rail Set (4, 7 and 12-ft) and Surface Protection Tape. These components will assist in creating a precise edge whether mitered, beveled or straight with the use of a wet polisher or variable speed grinder with 5/8″-11 spindle. No matter the tool, the use of water is mandatory with this kit. In addition, this kit will reportedly reduce operator fatigue and improve the quality of finish as well as the processing speed.

According to the company, whether the edges are being prepared for a seamless countertop installation, miter edge for lamination or to give a “fancy” Hollywood bevel as the edge treatment, the Beveling Auxiliary Base will provide a secure angle (between 15 to 90 degrees).

The Beveling Base Starter Kit will provide control of the cutting depth and angle in order to make professional quality edges at a fraction of the cost.

Alpha Professional Tools Introduces ESC-125 Wet/Dry Stone Cutter

Posted on 11 June 2018 by cradmin

Alpha Professional Tools® has re-designed the popular AWS-125 Wet Stone Cutter, and introduced the ESC-125 which was created based on the feedback from fabricators in preparation for the new silica rule change by OSHA in 2017. To reduce the silica particles,  a dust cover was added on the side of the blade guard to redirect the dust from the cutting edge into an attached HEPA vacuum for dry dust removal. The ESC-125 is equipped with a newly designed Water Jet System that delivers sufficient water to cool the cutting edge as well as removes slurry from the cutting line ahead of the stone cutter.

Equipped with the Water Jet is a Hybrid Kink/Memory-Free Water Hose that comes with a quick disconnect garden hose adapter.

The new Clamping System, located on the side of the blade, ensures cutting stability, whether doing a step cut 3cm sink hold cut-out or making a groove for the reinforcement rod with much smaller diameter blades.
