Dtec Diamond Blades
Affinity Tool Works is pleased to announce the official launch of its Dtec Diamond Blade product division. Dtec offers three lines of diamond blades, Superior, Contractor and Barracuda, providing a solution for every type of construction cutting application and budget. The Dtec blades are engineered to perform and built to meet the demands of a variety of applications, and are intended to fit a wide range of both gas- and electric-powered saws.
Dtec's Superior series offers more than ten blade sizes and is available in segmented and turbo configurations. With either a 12mm or 15mm segment height, the Superior segmented blades offer faster and cleaner cuts, along with a longer blade life. Featuring a modern design combining a segmented and continuous rim, the turbo blades are an ideal solution for fast, yet precise cuts on higher-end materials like granite, stone and tile. All Superior blades are built with a reinforced flange, which reduces vibration and noise and, when combined with strategically-placed cooling holes, helps prevent warping caused by excessive heat.
The Superior blades offer a unique and valuable benefit in that they've been designed with the ability to cut through steel. Unlike typical diamond blades that can be severely damaged if they encounter steel, the Superior blades are able to cut through the material easily. This makes them the ideal choice for applications where steel rebar may exist within the material, such as cutting reinforced concrete and masonry on bridge decks and roads.
With more than 15 blade sizes, the Contractor series offers an option for the price-conscious without sacrificing the performance of a diamond blade. Three different configurations are available to suit a wide range of applications: segmented, continuous rim and turbo. The segmented blades' 10mm segment height allows them to last up to 43 percent longer than competitive blades. With a smooth edge design, the continuous rim blades provide the cleanest, most precise cuts. Offering the best of both worlds, the turbo blades combine the speed of segmented blades with the smoother cutting ability of continuous rim styles. Intended to cut material such as concrete, masonry block and brick, this line is ideal for tradesmen in the general and landscape construction, concrete and masonry industries, as well as do-it-yourselfers.
Featuring a continuous rim design, the Barracuda series is a premium line that offers the smoothest, thinnest cuts for wet or dry applications. S-slots in the blade prevent heat build-up, extending blade life up to 10 times longer than similar blades. Furthermore, the S-slot design keeps the blade from warping and allows straighter, more precise cuts. Designed exclusively for "beauty cuts", the Barracuda series is perfect for cutting expensive granite and tile on high-end commercial and residential finish work and remodeling.
The Superior, Contractor and Barracuda blades are part of an ever-expanding line of high-quality diamond blades from Dtec.
Diamond Blades are manufactured and marketed by Affinity Tool Works, LLC. For more information, contact Affinity Tool Works, 1161 Rankin Drive, Troy, MI 48083, call 248-588-0395, toll-free 866-588-0395, fax 248-588-0623, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org, or visit the website.

MK Diamond MK-4000
Self-propelled MK Diamond saws meet all California and Federal emission standards
MK Diamond Products, Inc. introduces a new line of water-cooled gas and diesel concrete saws. The MK-4000HY and MK-4000KB self-propelled concrete saws feature low vibration water-cooled engines that meet all California and Federal emission standards.
The MK-4000HY features a Hyundai 1.6L 4-cylinder water-cooled engine with 48hp output. It has a new on board computer controlled fuel-injection system that monitors and adjusts fuel flow for optimum power at all operating settings. The throttle control is a power-actuated system that holds the power setting exactly at the designated RPM. In addition the computer provides up to the minute diagnostic of all engine operating conditions at the touch of a button.
The MK-4000KB features a Kubota diesel 1.5L 4-cylinder turbocharged water-cooled engine with 44hp output. Kubota’s new E-TVCS (Three Vortex Combustion System) provides clean, quiet, low vibration power.
The operator’s controls feature a T-handle traverse control and a variable plunge speed control. Controls have been designed to allow easy, simultaneous one-handed operation of traverse, blade plunge and water flow functions. The 3-position handlebar adjustment provides operator convenience and comfort.
The blade guard is equipped with flexible water tubes that ride directly on the blade, which significantly decreases the amount of water mist. This decreases the amount of water necessary for cutting and produces less slurry while providing maximum blade cooling and lubrication. This water system also provides superior blade cooling at all depths. The right/left mounting of the blade guard is simple with the quick release spade mounts and water hose disconnect. Both saws are available with 18”, 24”, 30” and 36” blade guards providing a variety of cutting depths.
The MK-4000 series are the only large concrete saws on the market that are engineered for both front and rear pivoting. This makes these saws extremely maneuverable for the operator on any jobsite. A unique feature of the MK-4000 series is the removable panels for maintenance accessibility. Other features include a maintenance free electro-hydraulic pump, 7 V-belt drive system that ensures maximum power transfer, and a totally enclosed, sealed blade shaft with continuous oil bath lubrication system.
The Eaton model 6 hydrostatic transmission is coupled to an MK engineered differential lock transmission. This differential lock transmission provides positive tracking during cutting on slippery surfaces and provides travel speed from 0-220 FPM in forward and 0-100 FPM in reverse. Another feature of the transmission is that it can be disengaged from the axle to allow the saw to be pushed manually.
MK Diamond Products, Inc. has been American-owned since 1868 and is a recognized world leader in the manufacturing of precision diamond blades and equipment for cutting, coring and polishing all types of masonry, concrete, tile and stone products. For more information, call 800/421-5830.
Blount Unveils New Utility Saw Chain Technology
PowerGrit offers a faster, easier, safer way to cut ductile iron pipe.
Blount International (NYSE: BLT) is pleased to introduce new PowerGrit Utility Saw Chain, a revolutionary new cutting product that significantly changes a contractor’s approach to pipe cutting. From ductile iron to plastic pipe, PowerGrit technology requires less access to cut pipe in the ground. Thus, contractors are able to cut from one position with far less excavation and effort than required by prior methods — eliminating the need to excavate all the way around a ductile iron water pipe and crawl underneath to complete a cut. An operator using PowerGrit chain is able to get in and out of the job faster, easier and most importantly, safer, because there is no need to get under the pipe with a saw.
PowerGrit Utility Saw Chain is a patent-pending combination of chain design features coupled with a unique brazed layer diamond coating. Jake VanderZanden, Sr. Vice President of Business Development and President of ICS, states, “This breakthrough came from recognizing a true, long-standing market need coupled with some very creative minds and determination. PowerGrit is the first of many new business and product innovations coming from Blount.”
PowerGrit is the first commercial result of an intensive R&D/Innovation effort undertaken by the Business Development Group of Blount International, founded in early 2008. The company has chosen first to apply the technology to larger horsepower applications like cutting pipe, but has a vision for product proliferation into smaller pitch chains for fire, rescue and broader construction applications.
PowerGrit chain, which will be initially marketed and sold under the ICS brand, is available for use on the professional grade ICS 633F4, 101cc, gas powered chain saw and the ICS 853 and 880, large frame hydraulic powered chain saws. PowerGrit is also sold through an OEM partnership with Stanley Hydraulic Tools.
Headquartered in Portland, Oregon, Blount International produces saw chains, bars and sprockets that are well respected in the chain saw and forestry industries and outdoor equipment accessories and parts for the garden and landscape industry. Blount offers these products under the brand names OREGON, Carlton and Windsor. Blount also manufacturers concrete chain saws and diamond chain, which have revolutionized concrete cutting in the construction industry.
As the world leader in Diamond Chain Technology, these products are offered under the ICS brand, known worldwide for its industry-leading innovations.
