Weha has recently made two new introductions to its offering of material handling equipment; the T-31 Anchor Machine and the Cut Stone Trolley.
The Weha T-31 Anchor Machine does not require the stone to be flipped over to cut the Anchor Slots. Once the counter top or vanity is on the work table then cut out and polished, simply put the T-31 Anchor machine inside the bowl, slide in the Anchor machine to the depth that you need, and make the anchor slot. According to the company this drastically speeds up the time it takes to make the slots, reduces labor to flip the counter top, cuts down one less time of handling the counter top and reduces the risk of breaking the top.
The T 31 Anchor Machine can also be used upside down to make anchor slots on top. For example. If you cut out a vanity or sink on a CNC machine with the top face down, before you remove the top from the pods you can easily take the T 31 Anchor Machine and cut out the slots before it ever leaves the CNC. If the top is completely polished, this would eliminate any need to put it on a work table to cut the anchor slots.
The design of the Weha Cut Stone Trolley allows a back-friendly placement of workpieces. By tilting the side adjustable strut you can store shorter workpieces. To keep the pull bar from getting in the way, it is hooked in an upright position when not in use.
Features of the Cut Stone Trolley include: Load Capacity of 3086 lbs; 46-in. height; 42-in. width; 48-in. length; two fixed and two locking swivel wheels with an 11-in. tire size; 2- x 1 1/8-in. wood struts; and 22 1/2-in. from floor to shelf .
