Using Stone Vacuum Lifters make your Granite Shop smarter
For making your Granite Shop more efficient, and thus more profitable, every detail matters. Helping Sam to improve more his Granite Shop, we recommended him to install Stone Vacuum Lifters, and the results he got are impressive: he can handle more customers with less people around, so his profits skyrocketed!.
We decided to share some of the guidance we provided him through a series of articles, covering the whole Fabrication process, from the Templating to Installation. We have already covered the Handling of Slab Stones, the Cutting Process, the Edge Profile Fabrication, the Polishing Granite Edges, which are summarized in a Granite Fabrication Tools article. We are expanding this series with this article, which deals with another important factor. Sam asked us:
We gave him an absolute yes. In our experience, all of the customers using Lifters works faster, more effcient and they get excellent results. So he went all in and got one of them. He came to us later and told it was one of the best business investmentes he had done so far.
Using a Stone Lifter has a lot of advantages: they are designed for lifting, moving, and installing large-size slabs. Two rubber vacuum suction pads protect slabs from scratching during being handled. The suction pressure maintaining stably ensues a slab not fallen down during working process. They are able to incline vertical from 0o – 90o . They a re very safe, efficient, and very easy to operate.
When we say “Granite”, we do for the sake of simplicity. Really, unless explicitly said, we refer to Stones in general, like Marble, Porcelain, or any other Natural Stone or Engineered Stone. So, when we say Polishing Granite Edges, we refer to Polishing Edges for almost any Stone piece
