News and Information about the Masonry Industry

Park Industries' Tiger 1100 Diamond Belt Saw has programmable, block-to-block and cut-to-cut sawing modes. The operator is no longer required to move the saw up, down or over to the next cut or to the next block; the machine does it for you. The belt saw's AMP control maximizes sawing speed through the stone maximizing your diamond belt. Machine movements are controlled by a synchronized gantry system — proven technology that has been applied to the majority of Park's large gantry saws, proving smooth travel motions and accurate gantry positioning anywhere along the rail. www.parkindustries.com

Jergens Inc.'s Hydraulic Vise Column features a patented swivel coupling to save operator time by eliminating the need to disconnect and reconnect the two hydraulic hoses as the column rotates. Each vise can be independently operated to quickly unload and load parts. The extremely compact rotary coupling does not interfere with tooling. Hydraulic power provides a fast, repeatable action that ensures consistent clamping force, up to 4,700 pounds of clamping capacity, without the variability due to operator fatigue that can occur with manual vises. www.jergensinc.com
