SECTOR – Portable Stone Router
The Sector was the very first portable stone router in the world.
Ghines invented this pioneering portable router which revolutionized the fab shops and opened the way to create perfectly shaped edges (read the story about the Sector router here).
Since then generations of fabricators all over the world finally could shape granite and marble worktops according to their clients’ preferences.
Since 1981, despite the manifold copies on the market, our machine remains the preferred choice of small and medium sized fab shops due to the high quality materials and components, the high reliability and long lasting durability.
WHAT MAKES IT UNIQUE?
- stainless steel spindle
- micro-grooves on the spindle shaft to prevent the belt from slipping
- extremely high precision, granted by components built to minimum tolerances
- elevated rotation speed due to special high-speed bearings
- water and dust protected spindle
- two different gliding systems, easily interchangeable
- maintenance free
SECTOR TRIPLESPEED – ELECTRONIC PORTABLE STONE ROUTER with three rotation speeds
The three different tool rotation speeds can be set through the S1, S2 and S3 push buttons:
- Max. speed (10000 rpm): Stock removal and finishing of natural materials (marble, granite…)
- Intermediate speed (6000 rpm): Stock removal and finishing of any type of synthetic material
- Min. speed (2600 rpm): Polishing of both natural and synthetic materials by Ghines polishing wheels
SECTOR TRIPLESPEED allows to exploit the properties of every single tool to their maximum and to process any material (engineered stone or synthetic materials require an intermediate speed to avoid to burn the resin bonded components).
The shaping and polishing process is executed in 4 to 7 steps, according to the kind of material and is the same for both, “simple” profiles (full bullnose, bird’s beak etc) as well as “complex” ones (Q, O etc), therefore one can offer different profiles at nearly the same cost.
Universal supply tension
Even if equipped with a three phase motor, the SECTOR TRIPLESPEED electronic portable stone router requires only single phase 230V/50-60Hz power, therefore it can be plugged into any standard single phase outlets.
SECTOR SINGLESPEED – ELECTRIC PORTABLE STONE ROUTER with fixed rotation speed
Out of the range of portable stone routers Ghines offers a fixed speed version at 10.000 rpm which allows to use the metal bonded wheels to create the shape of a profile in 1 to 4 steps, according to the desired finishing degree. Thanks to the high rotation speed and the quality of GHINESTOOLS, achieving the desired grade of finishing is fast and easy, even at one speed. The model SECTOR SINGLESPEED is in fact the tradeoff for those who want to reduce the number of processing steps and do not need a polished finish. The SECTOR SINGLESPEED does not allow the use of polishing wheels.
Single phase power but constant torque
SECTOR Stone routers are built to optimize the supplied power, maintaining constant the torque at any rpm and absorb only 14 Amp approx.
