Introducing V/O-CUTTING… this new method of cutting is an alternative method
to V-GROOVING when making thicker waterfall edges appear to have only one seam.
This application became possible by the introduction of two edge polishing machines,
LCV-M-V/O and LCH-V/O, from Marmo Meccanica S.P.A., a well-known, quality stone
fabrication machine manufacturer from Italy. Traditionally, V-GROOVING has been the
only method of cutting for lamination to make a countertop edges look thicker, without
stacking up the strips thus creating multiple seams on the edge. These edge polishing
machines come with two spindles at the beginning and at the end of the machine that
execute a vertical and a horizontal cut, creating a square profile strip, called an L-BORDER,
that is ready to be glued to the slab as the edge. In order to make L-BORDER strip successfully,
without breakage and/or chipping, requires a precision blade, so Alpha® designed a specialty
blade, called the Silencer VO, for this unique cutting application. The Silencer VO blade comes
in a 10” diameter with a laminated silent core that has a 50mm arbor. There are two bond
types available: one for the popular granite/quartz surface applications, and one specifically
designed for the new sintered slabs such as Dekton®, Lapitec and Neolith, just to name a few.
The Silencer VO for Dekton/Porcelain can also be used on various crystallized glass slabs
widely available in the US market. The V/O-CUTTING system makes your lamination process
easier and faster, and creates an almost invisible seam.
