Machine of the Month: March 2010
VIC International recently announced the newest machine in its comprehensive range of stone fabrication products, the Fab King, a precision 3-axis workstation with open gantry. This unit is designed to produce bowl holes fast and accurately, and it also profiles edges using standard manual router tooling. Linear guides on gantry rails insure smooth travel of the X and Y axis. An added feature of this machine is the ability to surface polish, which allows the user to make repairs on scratched stone.
The Fab King is driven by a powerful 3-horsepower, variable-speed (2,700 to 10,000 rpm) motor. The 220-volt, single-phase power requirement allows the Fab King to be added to any stone fabrication shop. Moreover, the open gantry design allows for processing of large projects.
Made in the U.S., the Fab King features adjustable table height and water flow with center and halo water feed. The machine was designed to be easy to install and operate, and it also offers dust-free operation to help meet OSHA requirements. Spare parts, tooling and support is readily available.
