Dekton Cutting Blades and Tools

Oct 29, 2015 in News, Product Highlight

The revolutionary Dekton® by Cosentino is an exciting and in high demand product for countertop surfaces, flooring, cladding, facades for both inside and exteriors. Dekton® is a proprietary blend of quartz, porcelain and glass and this makes the final product heat proof, non-porous, scratch resistant, UV resistant and chemical resistant.

Ultra dense surfaces like Dekton® are very difficult to fabricate and require specialty cutting tools designed especially for this material.

GV Service distributes tools designed for cutting and drilling Dekton® surfaces. Dekton blades are manufactured by Tecno Diamant – an industry leading producer of diamond tools – Made in Italy.

OBSERVATIONS

It can be provided in any size and type of internal and external diameter. Standard stock sizes are what are listed above.

RECOMMENDATIONS AND CONDITIONS
CONDITIONS:

– SPEED: A cutting speed of 0.7-0.9 m/min is recommended for all diameters.

– RPM: When frequency converter is available*:

      350mm Diameter: 2000-2200 rpm

      400mm Diameter: 1700-1900 rpm

* If there is no frequency converter it is necessary to adjust the speed depending on the type of machine or change the blade diameter to achieve optimal cutting quality.

– For large diameter blades (larger than 400 mm), take precaution with their vibration. In this case, lock washers are recommended.

– High volumes of cooling water pointing in the direction of the blade are necessary.

OBSERVATIONS

– This tool gives a very high quality cutting result.

PRIOR TO STARTING WORK

– The blade should be in good condition. The cutting table should be solid and robust. It must be perfectly levelled and flat (the quality can be improved by using a rubber or wood surface to buffer the blade vibrations).

– Check that the bench surface where the slab is going to placed is in good condition (i.e. that it is not covered in cuts in any one area, which might lead to the material moving).

– If a special machine is available, in which cutting can be carried out while immersed in water, do the work in these conditions, as it can increase the speed, quality as well as the performance of the blade in general.

RECOMMENDATIONS AND CONDITIONS
CONDITIONS

– 4200 rpm and 200 mm/min for any DEKTON® color.

 High volumes of cooling water are required to ensure that the tool is perfectly cool to achieve a top quality cutting result.

TYPES OF WORK:

 Reduce the speed for work with tight corners.

OBSERVATIONS

– This tool gives a top quality cutting result.

 For straight cutting, start diagonally to prevent the material from breaking. Then finish, by starting with the side opposite to the one you started with.

 The suction pads must be well positioned to prevent the material from vibrating during the work.
