Alpha Professional Tools has launched a line of tooling specifically developed for use on the new Cosentino Dekton ultracompact sintered material. Because Dekton is quite different than granite or quartz surfacing, it requires dedicated tooling to fabricate successfully. Working with Cosentino, Alpha studied all phases of the material’s fabrication and developed this line of specialized tooling, reports the company. The tooling was tested extensively prior to making the tooling available and these tools are recommended by Cosentino for use on the product. The series includes:
• The Silencer III bridgesaw blade;
• A CNC Core Bit for core drilling for corners of sink and faucet holes;
• The Twincur GEM-V for straight and beveled edge polishing using multiple-head polishing machines; and
• A CNC Finger Bit ffor sink hole cut-outs and any exterior cutting applications.
