Machine of the Month: July 2010
The new Tomahawk Stone Splitter from Braxton-Bragg offers an economical concept in “green” fabrication by using leftover slab pieces to create beautiful stone products. The new machine, designed to utilize the scrap stone found in every fabricator’s workshop, splits measured sections of leftover stone slab material. These precision pieces can be stacked, laid or clad with mortar - creating a chiseled wall - or laid out flat to produce innovative flooring and paving.
By creating additional revenue for fabricators, return on investment can be achieved within the first quarter of use, making the Tomahawk a solid investment for any size shop, according to Braxton-Bragg. Using the Tomahawk Stone Splitter on waste stone opens a whole new market for designers utilizing natural stone applications. The possibilities using the resulting end product are only limited by the fabricator’s, designer’s, architect’s or builder’s imagination.
The Tomahawk has a high capacity, as it cuts stone for tile up to 100 square feet per hour, splits stone up to 30 square feet per hour. It also completes up to 200 square feet per hour of linear tiles. It is moderately priced, making it suitable for the small fabrication shop.
It features a lightweight, wheeled design of only 300 pounds, allowing one person to move the unit and has handles that fold and stow away when not in use, making the Tomahawk easily portable. The machine uses 120-volt electricity to power the 3,000-psi hydraulics. Since the Splitter is only 5 feet long x 5 feet tall x 22 inches wide, shops of all sizes can accommodate this small footprint.
The Tomahawk is available exclusively through Braxton-Bragg. For additional information, contact the sales reps at Braxton-Bragg at 1-800-575-4401.
