Safety Notice

  • Do not exceed maximum rpm
  • Max rpm: Pos 00 - Pos 3: 6,000 rpm
  • Max rpm: Pos 4 - Pos 6: 3,000 rpm

The Number of Passes Required Depends On:

  • Material (dark granites and marbles are usually more difficult to polish so you may need to increase the number of passages.)
  • Water quality
  • Condition of tool
  • Operators expertise (the right pressure will decrease vibration and give the best result with few passes. Pressing too hard will result in a shorter life of the polisher and orange peel effect on the material. Low pressure means a higher number of passages required and less gloss in the polish result)

Router Profile Wheel Pos 00 Frangistone

  • Material - Granite, quartz and hard natural stone
  • RPM – 6,000
  • Details – Set Rpm to 6,000 and move the machine towards the slab and press against it firmly. Move the machine a few centimetres both to the left and then to the right until the wheel idles (suggested direction of processing is from left to right). This means the rotating toucher washer has connected with the slab and the wheel has removed the appropriate amount of material.

Router Profile Wheel Pos 0 Razorstone

  • Material - Granite, quartz and hard natural stone
  • Rpm – 6,000
  • Details - Set Rpm to 6,000 and move the machine towards the slab and press against it resolutely. Move slightly the machine a few centimeters both to the left and then to the right until the wheel idles (suggested direction of processing is from left to right). This means the rotating toucher washer has connected with the slab and the wheel has removed the appropriate amount of material.

Router Profile Wheel Pos 1 Segemented (Pos only available for Internal Waterfed profiles)

  • Material - Granite, quartz and hard natural stone
  • RPM – 6,000
  • Details - Set Rpm to 6,000 and move the machine towards the slab and press against it resolutely. Move slightly the machine a few centimeters both to the left and then to the right until the wheel idles (suggested direction of processing is from left to right). This means the rotating toucher washer has connected with the slab and the wheel has removed the appropriate amount of material.

Router Profile Wheel Pos 2 Perfect Form & MEM Professional

  • Material - Granite, quartz, ceramic and hard natural stone
  • RPM – 6,000
  • Details – Continue with the same operation as Router Profile Wheel Pos 1 Perfect Form & MEM Professional.

  • Material – Marble and limestone
  • RPM – 6,000
  • Details - Set Rpm to 6,000 and move the machine towards the slab and press against it resolutely. Move slightly the machine a few centimeters both to the left and then to the right until the wheel idles (suggested direction of processing is from left to right). This means the rotating toucher washer has connected with the slab and the wheel has removed the appropriate amount of material.

Router Profile Wheel Pos 2 MEM Electroplated

  • Material – Marble and limestone
  • RPM – 6,000
  • Details - Continue with the same operation as Router Profile Wheel Pos 1 Perfect Form & MEM Professional.

Router Profile Wheel Pos 3 Bi Power

  • Material – All materials
  • RPM – 6,000
  • Details – Pos 3 is designed to rectify the exact profile shape of the edge. It does not have a rotating toucher washer and is made from a very fine diamond that helps to prepare the edge of the stone for the next polishing positions. It is used by moving it from left to right, a minimum of 2 and a maximum of 6 passes, depending on the thickness of the slab and on the exact specification of the edge. Pressure should be reduced here, and the operator should make quick constant passes without breaking the smooth motion. When this tool has been used for a number of meters, extend the number of passes to obtain a perfect profile.
