The curiosities that we receive from our followers are amazing and very interesting. This time we received the left picture in the photo below, which depicts a tile cutter used in Northern Europe in the years 70-80.
Analyzing this tool, we can verify its simplicity, the system is based on the principle of making an incision on the tile, which is subsequently cut by applying pressure on it.
In recent decades large progress has been made with regards to innovation in materials created by the companies that make ceramics floors and walls, up to the new generation tiles available today such as very hard porcelain gres as well as large format porcelain tiles (LFT) which reach up to three meters length.
This progress of materials stimulated a parallel development of tools and equipment for cutting and laying new generation tile. Montolit has always been up to date with the latest trends, receiving them as inputs for innovation and creativity and driving the launch of solutions to the specific needs of professional tilers.
The evolution in terms of design, ergonomics, efficiency and quality of tile cutters can be seen if we compare the left picture with the one on the right, which depicts the Masterpiuma – one of the most recent professional tile cutters, designed by Montolit and distributed worldwide. In fact, especially during the last few years, technology has allowed the creation of products that not only ensure perfect cuts on new generation tiles but also provide the operator with an optimal work experience, ease of use and satisfaction towards the final work achievements.
