The Tomahawk Stone Splitter offers granite shops an economical concept in green fabrication and stone recycling.
Why is Tomahawk Good for Your Business?
According to market research, 85% of stone that is excavated from the earth for countertops gets thrown away during all the various processing phases, from quarrying the stone to the final fabrication. With a loss of approximately 30% due to wasted stone during countertop fabrication, the average fabricator loses around $5,000 per month, which is money thrown into our landfills. By using the Tomahawk Stone Splitter on waste stone, a whole new market opens up for designers utilizing natural stone applications. The possibilities using the resulting end product are only limited by the fabricator’s, designer’s, architect’s or builder’s imagination. The fabricator wins, the client wins, the environment wins; everyone wins.
What is Tomahawk Stone Splitter?
The Tomahawk has a high capacity of up to 75 sq. ft. per hour; it is moderately priced, and is an excellent buy for the small fabrication shop. Since no dies are needed, initial investment costs can be kept low, creating less overhead per project. Return on investment can be achieved within the first quarter of use, making the Tomahawk a sound investment for any size shop. Two blade types are available for the Tomahawk Stone Splitter: a basic straight blade, and a serpentine blade, which produces a classic chiseled edge. A simple blade change allows the fabricator to obtain different edge finishes, making the Tomahawk very versatile. Altogether, over 100 different shapes, sizes and finishes can be produced from the Tomahawk in conjunction with a stone tumbler or vibrator.
