Technology update: PSC-150 Pneumatic Stone Cutter
Alpha Tools has introduced the new PSC-150 Pneumatic Stone Cutter. This industrial quality tool is equipped with a 2 HP motor, and with a speed governor within the motor that regulates the air consumption according to the torque needed for application. Alpha recognized the need for an industrial quality portable stone cutter that is capable of miter cutting of 1¼-inch (3 cm) materials with ease, so that any stone fabricator can use it when miter cuts are required, without the time-consuming setup. Since it is a pneumatic powered motor, you can save the repair and maintenance costs of electric stone cutters when sink-hole cutting and groove-cutting for rodding applications.
The PSC-150 offers kink-free water and air hoses to improve the maneuverability of the stone cutter. The flexibility of the hoses helps reduce operator fatigue and improves the operation. The product comes with an Alpha Eclipse II 6-inch blade which is the recommended turbo blade for granite and engineered stone. It can also utilize a variety of consumables, including the Alpha Katana 6-inch for porcelain panels and slabs, the Hot-Rod 4-inch for ¼-inch steel rods and 1/8-inch fiber glass rods and a Libero 5-inch blade for marble applications.
