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.

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.
