Powerful Pneumatic Stone Cutter for Industrial Applications
Alpha® is excited to introduce a new industrial quality pneumatic stone cutter, called the PSC-150, which is equipped with a 2 hp motor, with a speed governor in the motor that regulates the air consumption according to the torque needed for the application. This regulation includes producing enough torque to cut 1-1/4” (3cm) stone slabs in one pass. In addition, Alpha® recognized the need for an industrial quality 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 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. Alpha® offers a carriage that retrofits on the Alpha® Guide Rail System to support the application of making precise miter cuts for the perfect lamination. 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.
To ensure a long maintenance interval, we also recommend using the manifold system that comes with a regulator and filter to catch the debris and moisture delivered by compressed air. The Alpha® PSC-150 comes with an Eclipse II 6” blade which is the recommended turbo blade for granite and engineered stone. 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” fiber glass rods. For marble applications, a Libero 5” blade is recommended since most marble slabs are 3/4” (2cm) thick or less.
Setup needs to have a minimum 10 hp compressor with a 120 gal tank. To run the PSC150 correctly at 2 HP you need to have 48 cfm coming into the tool. Remember if you are running several work stations and the compressor is 92 cfm you need to calculate what the other work stations cfm's are removing from the 92 cfm.
The minimum size pipe line should be 1/2”. Best line would be 3/4”. The only time you should need our high flow fitting is if the line is only 3/8”. Any line smaller such as 1/4” will not work with your PSC-150 Stone Cutter.
