Alpha® has announced a new electric stone cutter, the ESC-150, which is equipped with a powerful motor capable cutting 1-1/4-inch (3cm) stone slabs in one pass.

Alpha® states the tool was developed to meet the need for a quality electric portable stone cutter capable of miter cutting 1-1/4-inch (3cm) materials with ease, so that any stone fabricator can use it when miter cuts are required, without the time-consuming setup. Also, Alpha® states the new tool 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 was developed 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-inch blade for porcelain panels and slabs, Hot-Rod 4-inch blade for 1/4-inch steel rods and 1/8-inch fiber glass rods. For marble applications, a Libero 5-inch blade is recommended since most marble slabs are 3/4-inches (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.
