Machince of the Month: Superior Stone Products
Superior Stone Products recently introduced a heavy-duty bridge saw that balances performance with value. With a massive steel bridge and rugged 20-hp motor, this saw is engineered to be at the top of the class compared to similarly priced equipment.
The machine features a 12-foot cutting length, 10 feet of bridge travel, and an automatic tilting head for miter cuts. Each machine comes with a hydraulic tilt table that extends to 85 degrees and holds up to 3,300 pounds. The machine includes heavy-duty steel stands, but can also be configured for block walls. PLC controls allow full programmability, and a German-made laser also comes with each unit.
Kurt Welch of Welch Tile and Marble in Kent City, MI, one of the first purchasers of the Superior Saw, states that edge polishing time has been reduced significantly with his new saw while using a 16-inch MG Titanium blade. Welch also claims that the hydraulic tilt table has greatly improved the ability to load and unload slabs. Superior guarantees that the purchase of their bridge saw includes shipping and installation assistance. A one-year limited warranty is also included, with the company's service department responding to service calls within 48 hours.
