Franklin, NJ – November 10, 2021 – Alpha® is excited to introduce a new electric stone cutter, called the ESC-150, which is equipped with a powerful motor capable cutting 1-1/4” (3cm) stone slabs in one pass. In addition, Alpha recognized the need for a quality electric portable stone cutter that is capable of miter cutting of 1-1/4” (3cm) materials with ease, so that any stone fabricator can use it when miter cuts are required, without the time-consuming setup. Also, it is great for sink-hole cutting and groove- cutting for rodding applications. The ESC-150 includes a kink-free water hose for improved maneuverability of the stone cutter. The flexibility of the hose helps reduce operator fatigue and improves the operation.
The Alpha® ESC-150 comes with a built-in dust gate making it dustless when connected to a HEPA vacuum. It can utilize a variety of consumables including the Alpha® Katana 6” for porcelain panels and slabs, Hot-Rod 4” for 1/4” steel rods and 1/8” fiberglass rods. For marble applications, a Libero 5” blade is recommended since most marble slabs are 3/4” (2cm) thick or less. Alpha offers a carriage assembly that fits on the Alpha® Guide Rail System to support the application of making precise miter cuts for the perfect lamination.
Alpha has also created two new kits to showcase the versatility of the ESC-150. The first is a Miter Cutting Kit which allows you to easily make mitered cuts for a beautiful waterfall edge. This kit comes with dual carriages, blades, and a set of guide rails to fit any size job.
The second is a simple cutting system to trim countertops quickly and smoothly. It comes with a carriage assembly, blade and guide rail to provide accuracy, and a stable performance, even on full size slab cutting.
