What is a lamellar cutter?
Lamellar cutters are designed for cutting baked material with an irregular surface varying by a maximum of 4 mm. Lamellar cutters have a ‘blade’ comprised of separate cutting teeth. The cutting teeth are mounted elastically in vulcanised blade holders (upper and lower). The elastic mounting enables the blade to adjust to the surface of the block, which ensure that the pressure on the blade is distributed evenly along the fracture line.
What is the service life of a block cutter?
ALMI grants a warranty of no less than 2 years on all block cutters. The service life is at least 5 years. ALMI has spare parts for all machines manufactured in the past 10 years. ALMI guarantees quality with a long service life.
Can a hydraulic block cutter be used for a whole day without needing to charge the battery during the day?
A hydraulic block cutter with a fully-charged battery can be used for a whole day without needing to charge the battery. The battery can also be charged while the machine is in use. The battery is mounted in the black battery container on the side of the block cutter. The battery holder has an integral charger. This makes charging the battery very easy: the battery holder can be detached from the block cutter and taken to a charging point.
I’ve forgotten to charge the battery, what do I do now?
Hydraulic block cutters are equipped with an integral charger. The charger begins to charge the battery as soon as the plug is connected to the mains. The block cutter can be used while the battery is being charged.
Which cutters are suitable for sand-lime blocks?
In principle, all block cutters can be used to cut sand-lime blocks. The AL50KS and AL65KS have been designed specifically for sand-lime blocks.
What is the difference between the AL33 and the AL33D?
The AL33 has sprung-mounted supporting plates, whilst the AL33D has fixed supporting plates that are a little lower than the blade. The slab then rests on the supporting plates at an angle to the blade and is cut at angle: see the photo.
