Diamant’s DM 60 SERIES 5 Metal + 1 Rubber Wheels package from Nicolai Diamant
Nicolai Diamant’s DM 60 Series 5 Metal + 1 Rubber Wheels package is the ideal solution for fabricating engineered stone. With a wide stock removal range, these diamond tools can travel 30 feet per minute, meeting your every fabrication need.

Zenesis Carbon from Zenesis Technology
Zenesis Carbon was originally designed for large-format porcelain and sintered stone products such as Dekton, Lapitec, Neolith, etc., but the company has later identified an impressive number of additional applications. It also worked exceptionally well on difficult semi-precious stones and other challenging materials. It is a highly versatile all-around blade for lower HP saws that might otherwise struggle with hard materials. The ultra-thin rim, combined with tightly butted segments, renders a remarkably clean finish in both straight and miter cuts, and the reinforced core keeps the blade from deflecting while cutting.
