SQUALETTO FLEX – EXPANDABLE DRY CUT MACHINE, SUPPLIED WITH 2HP 1.5KW 230V ANGLE GRINDER AND Ø 125MM DIAMOND BLADE. AVAILABLE IN TWO STANDARD BUNDLE KITS. EXPANDABLE IN LENGTH AND WIDTH TO SUPPORT CUTS UP TO 310CM.
Squaletto FLEX is an innovative cutting machine ideal for porcelain tiles and slabs, and other material panels. It easily and economically adapts to the slab size, from a few centimeters all the way to 3 meters and more.
With Squaletto FLEX owning, managing and transporting several different cutting machines just to ready for tiles of different sizes becomes a thing of the past. Squaletto FLEX is a single, configurable cutting system, both lightweight and easily transportable, which can be expanded and contracted to optimise its structure according to the job being carried out.
In its base configuration Squaletto FLEX is 1 meter long, 48 cm wide, 35 cm tall, weighs in at approx 15 kg, and supports cuts up to 60cm long. Its capacity grows up to 310cm net cut length thanks to optional 50 or 100cm extension kits. Each extension kit is compact, lightweight, and easy to install or remove when needed. Similarly, lateral extensions are also available to properly manage extra wide slabs or panels.
Wheels, legs, and all length or width extensions once installed can be removed with the same ease. At the end of a working day cutting 3x2m slabs, a fully expanded Squaletto FLEX system can be dismantled in minutes, and goes back to its 100x40x35cm base-size, plus a bunch of bars, all ready to be easily stowed into just about any car’s trunk.
Squaletto FLEX cuts thanks to a bundled high-quality angle grinder, featuring 1500 W / 2 HP single-phase engine and variable 2800-10500 RPM speed. It supports 125mm diamond blades, resulting in 35mm max cutting depth.
Squaletto FLEX is designed for dry cut only. Dust can be reduced / collected by a separately available vacuum aspirator. On the blade protection carter a shaped bracket is dedicated to hold an industry-standard aspirator pipe in the optimal efficiency position.
Squaletto FLEX supports all types of cuts usually required on a professional bulding site:
All Ghelfi cutting machines are manufactured and assembled in our manufacture production plant in Bologna, the same place where for more than over 40 years we continue to accrue an evolving experience in research, design, implementation and assistance on machinery and accessories needed every day by tile, flooring and masory professionals.
We serve the most demanding professionals, or customers with unusual requirements, building on-demand customized machines, or variations of our standard machines, based on their specific requirements.
Why is SQUALETTO FLEX the best choice ?
|IT EXPANDS AND RETRACTS WHEN AND WHERE YOU NEED||Squaletto FLEX in its base configuration is a very lightweight and compact structure made of aluminum profiles designed to cut tiles, slabs or panels up to 60cm long.
Its length can easily be extended to allow cuts up to 310 cm long by simply installing further aluminum profile bars into the main structure.
Length and width extensions are separately available to grant maximum cost modularity: buy what you need only if and when you need it.
Furthermore, extensions are designed to be easily installed and removed. A fully expanded Squaletto FLEX system can be dismantled in minutes, and carried / transported with great ease, in just a car.
|ALWAYS PERFECT CUTS, INCLUDING THICK TILES, HUGE SLABS, AND IRREGULAR SURFACES||Squaletto FLEX cuts on tiles by means of a diamond blade driven by an electrical tool. By employing a blade specifically designed for porcelain and ceramic cut is always precise and quick. The electrical engine features high power (1500W / 2HP) and variable speed (from 2800 to 10500 rpm) which is key to best handle the most challenging cut scenarios.
Squaletto FLEX makes all previous generation cutting systems limitations, imperfections and wastes a thing of the past. Forget all “break-up-time” problems you endured on traditional tile cutters while working on big, thick or irregular-surface tiles: Squaletto FLEX will cut all that with much greater ease.
|NOT ONLY “TILES”||A Squaletto FLEX expandable system is a great tool when cutting panels made of diverse materials: wood, drywall, pre-coupled and much more. By just using the right diamond blade for each material Squaletto FLEX grants always perfect, on-square cuts with great speed and ease.|
|A SEPARATELY EXPLOITABLE ELECTRICAL TOOL||Squaletto FLEX cuts by means of a high-quality, industry-standard angle grinder. At any time the grinder can be taken off the system and used freehand for countless other purposes, thus furtherly dramatically increasing the return on the investment.|
|ALUMINUM CHASSIS||Squaletto FLEX chassis is made of extruded aluminum profiles, featuring superior robustness when compared to old generation iron-based solutions. Aluminum is also unattackable by rust, and lightweight. Perhaps most importantly, aluminum profiles are virtually undeformable, all this yelding much better cut precision over the entire product lifetime.|
|WORKBENCH||Squaletto FLEX workbench is implemented by well positioned rust-free aluminum profiles like the main chassis. Cut material frictioning during positioning is absolutely minimal. In its base configuration Squaletto FLEX overall width is 48cm, which can be furtherly expanded by adopting optional side extensions.|
|SLIDING BRIDGE AND MOVING PARTS||The bridge supporting Squaletto FLEX cutting head’s horizontal sliding is made of a 40x80mm extruded aluminum profile. Cutting head’s movement is granted by 4 armored stainless steel ball bearings, running on 2 rails – one above the bridge, one underneath – also made of 100% stainless steel. Our features offer superior wear resistance, and virtually eliminate periodical maintenance / calibration requirements.|
|DUST REDUCTION||To reduce or eliminate the dust produced during dry cuts all that is needed is inserting an appropriate industry-standard vacuum aspirator pipe terminal onto the specific bracket on Squaletto FLEX’s blade protection carter. Depending on the required dust collection efficiency, a vacuum system of appropriate capacity, power and filtering class is required.|
|“MITRE” (45°) CUT||Squaletto FLEX’s horizontal sliding bridge and cutting head can easily be reclined to execute 45° (“mitre”) cuts on tile edges.|
|HEAD TILTING SYSTEM||Cutting head’s built-in vertical tilting system enables the operator to calibrate cut thickness to the desired value in total safety, and effortlessly execute rectangular (“box”) cuts.|
|MECHANICAL PROTECTIONS||Squaletto FLEX’s cutting head features blade-level mechanical protections to minimise operational risks.|
|LEGS||Squaletto FLEX can be fully used on the ground or on any sufficiently sturdy table. Alternatively, the main chassis can be equipped with a set of removable legs transforming Squaletto FLEX into a “dry table saw” whenever it is convenient. Legs are very easily installable, and can be removed in seconds at the end of the job to facilitate transport or stocking.
A set of 4 legs is bundled on Squaletto FLEX PRO, and can optionally be added at any time on lower tier configurations.
Additional legs are also separately available, to support longer and/or wider Squaletto FLEX setups. Install and position additional legs alongside a Squaletto FLEX expanded configuration is very simple and fast, and – like all other accessories – additional legs, too, are easily removed for better transport / stocking at the end of the work session.
